Please join City Year Baton Rouge for our annual Opening Day Celebration and Back to Service Event on Friday, September 12, 2014! Opening Day is City Year's official service kick-off and civic debut, the literal and symoblic beginning to a new year of service to students and to the Baton Rouge community.
