City Year Boston opening day 2019
Opening day ceremony
On Friday, September 13th, 2019 at the Edward M. Kennedy Institute, 250 City Year AmeriCorps members pledged to make a difference in the lives of more than 12,600 students in Boston Public Schools at the Opening Day ceremony for City Year Boston.
Opening Day celebrates the start of a new school year across City Year’s national network as 3,000 AmeriCorps members serve as student success coaches in 350 schools across the country. As part of their year of full-time service, these AmeriCorps members will provide students with tutoring and in-class support, run extended day programs, and organize school-wide initiatives to increase academic achievement and student engagement.
Congressman Joe Kennedy, Latoyia Edwards, and others joined City Year AmeriCorps members as they recited the City Year pledge to demonstrate their commitment to serving Boston.
A dedicated partner since 2001, Comcast NBCUniversal served as City Year’s National Opening Day sponsor.
