Ripples Of Hope Awards Dinner

City Year Chicago's Ripples of Hope Dinner unite business and community leaders, citizen supporters, and service champions for evenings that raise dollars to support and honor the work of AmeriCorps members who are making a difference in their communities through a year of full-time service.



In 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.


Opening Day

Sponsored by Comcast NBCUniversal, Opening Day is the official swearing-in ceremony for the City Year Chicago corps. This Fall, in the company of family, friends, and supporters, more than 240 young leaders will pledge to make a difference in the schools and neighborhoods of Chicago.
