There are many reasons why AmeriCorps members at City Year Cleveland have chosen to give 1700 hours of service to our local communities and schools. Some may be passionate about education, others are excited about mentoring youth, some want to give back to the community they grew up in and for others it may be all of the above! Whatever their reasons for serving, we are grateful to have 50 new AmeriCorps members serving at City Year Cleveland for the 2014-2015 year in Cleveland Metropolitan School District Investment Schools. Throughout the month of September, we will be sharing "Why I Serve" statements from our new AmeriCorps members and staff members on our social media channels. Follow us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook to learn some of the many reason why our AmeriCorps members like East Technical High School Team Leader Christina Bowerman (pictured at left) serve!
