City Year Chicago
25th Anniversary Ripples of Hope Awards Dinner
In the 2018-2019 school year, City Year Chicago celebrates its 25th Anniversary! The annual Ripples of Hope Awards Dinner provides essential revenue to City Year Chicago. It enables City Year Chicago to partner with Chicago Public Schools to help bridge the gap between what their students need and what schools are designed and resourced to provide.
City Year is an education-focused nonprofit organization founded to help keep students in school and on track to succeed.
City Year Chicago was founded in 1994 with 55 AmeriCorps members. Today 242 AmeriCorps members serve as Student Success Coaches in 28 Chicago Public Schools, and provide academic and social-emotional support to over 15,000 students.
