Red Jacket Society
City Year’s Red Jacket Society (RJS) is a community of philanthropic individuals and families who believe in the power of the City Year jacket to help students and schools succeed.
In the communities we serve, the City Year jacket is a powerful symbol of idealism and the power of young people to make a difference. By joining RJS, you can help make possible the work of City Year AmeriCorps members, ensuring that students have a chance to “grow up with City Year” and build the skills and mindsets to thrive in school and out.
The red jacket means being part of something bigger than yourself. We are changing lives by supporting City Year.
In 2019, nearly 500 RJS members invested $11 million in communities across the country, adding to the more than $40 million given since the inception of the program in 2015. You can become a part of this community of donors with a personal annual gift starting at $10,000.
