Red Jacket: Because Of Campaign

The Red Jacket: Because of campaign is a six-week event centered around building community, spreading appreciation, and supporting students in Little Rock.

City Year Little Rock is thrilled to announce our Red Jacket: Because Of Campaign. This initiative aims to raise $100,000 in funds over a six week time frame while celebrating the community we are fortunate enough to serve in.  The Red Jacket Campaign takes the place of our traditional signature “Red Jacket Ball”.

Because of this amazing community of supporters and champions, City Year Little Rock AmeriCorps Members serve each day in-person at five key partner schools. ACMs reach thousands of students, in schools and virtually, tutoring and mentoring so that  students stay on track. Even as COVID-19 causes an unprecedented moment of disruption to the schooling of Little Rock children, we know students will continue to dream big and strive for academic success. Now more than ever they need people who believe in their future.

A decision to participate in City Year Little Rock’s Red Jacket: Because Of Campaign is a decision to help local students reconnect with their school community, re-engage in their learning and recover from learning loss.
