Refuel. Recharge. Reignite.
On January 27, City Year Cleveland held its Advanced Training Academy (ATA). ATA is three days dedicated to training, reflecting and reviving our staff and AmeriCorps members in the middle of the year. AmeriCorps members assess accomplishments and goals, and plan how to finish the year strong. Also, part of the time is spent on deepening their understanding of inclusivity and continuing the process of building the beloved community while connecting deeper as a team.
