Sending Forth "Tiny Ripples of Hope"
On Sept. 25th we celebrated Opening Day with Los Angeles Unified Board President Monica Garcia and Assemblymember Miguel Santiago, who swore in our 270 AmeriCorps members. At the ceremony, City Year AmeriCorps members officially pledged to dedicate a year of full-time service to thousands of students in 32 Los Angeles Unified schools.

Oh, the Places They'll Go!
