City Year Denver Welcomes Andy Levy as Managing Director of Development
Denver, CO – February 12, 2020
City Year Denver is excited to announce Andy Levy as the organization’s Managing Director of Development. Andy is a 4th generation Denver native and a graduate of Denver Public Schools’ George Washington High School. He spent 25 years in the retail industry at Joslins and Neiman Marcus before receiving his graduate degree in nonprofit management from Regis University.
“Andy brings to City Year a passion for mission-driven organizations and an awareness of the power of relationships in supporting critical work,” said Morris W. Price, Jr., Vice President and Executive Director of City Year Denver. Since 2005, Levy has taken a values-first approach to development work with JEWISHcolorado, The Denver Hospice and, most recently, CU’s Anschutz Medical Campus. Levy has a strong record of success mobilizing resources to grow organizational capacity and a deep connection to serving the communities of Denver.
“It is with great enthusiasm I join the City Year Denver team,” says Levy. “I have long believed in the power of young people and understood the importance of creating opportunity for youth, especially underserved youth. City Year captivated my interest because the work is twofold; we work with students to provide mentoring, tutoring and emotional support to get students identified as “off-track” headed in the right direction, thus reducing the drop-out rates in DPS. Additionally, through our work with AmeriCorps members, we are helping to shape and develop a new generation of servant leaders who will go on to significantly impact humanity in their adult lives.”
In his role, Levy will lead the development team, collaborating with the board of directors, community stakeholders and volunteers to develop and execute strategy that will allow the organization to maximize awareness and civic engagement through philanthropy and volunteer leadership.
