Annual Gala

City Year spring galas unite business and community leaders, citizen supporters, and service champions for evenings that raise millions of dollars to support and honor the work of corps members who are making a difference in their communities through a year of full-time service.


Celebrating Service and Impact

In May and June, City Year gathers to honor corps members' year of service by thanking them for their passion and dedication to national service. We bring in key speakers, have a diploma ceremony, and award gifts of appreciation and distinction.
