Opening Day

Our Annual kick-off Event

Opening Day is the official swearing in ceremony for the City Year Detroit corps. This Fall, in the company of family, friends, and supporters, more than 70 young leaders will pledge to make a difference in the schools and neighborhoods of Detroit.

Our Impact

Powerful Results

Using our Whole School, Whole Child model, our corps members recently helped turn around eight Detroit schools. Along the way, we measured our success.
