Ripples of Hope
Join City Year Chicago for our 2021 virtual gala
Our theme for this year’s virtual gala, serving to rebuild the foundation for our future together, reminds us to look back on the past year of tribulations and triumphs for us all, and look forward to a stronger future together. During these uniquely challenging times, City Year Chicago has continued to strive towards our mission of advancing educational equity and we look forward to sharing and celebrating our journey with you during this year’s gala.
We could not do this work without your support, or the unwavering support of our honorees.
