It Takes A Village to Raise a Child
City Year Boston's Ambassador Circle is a volunteer group of socially conscious and motivated young professionals who are dedicated to advancing the mission and values of City Year. We truly believe in the sentiment "It takes a village to raise a child, " and that we are all responsible for the success of our students here in Boston.
We are working to raise $25,000 to support our teams of AmeriCorps members who will be serving in 21 Boston Public Schools this year. Each team will receive a budget of $1,200, which can be used to purchase supplies, put on school wide events, and purchase incentives for attendance and behavior initiatives. These funds will provide City Year Boston teams with the resources necessary to fully support the students, teachers, and staff during the 2016-2017 school year.
