2016-2017 City Year Miami Theme: Ripples

"Each time a person stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”

Heroes in Red

I was beyond grateful to be given the opportunity to spend a day with these 12 City Year members. They are truly a tight-knit group on a mission to making the world a better place, one student at a time. So, if you ever find yourself at a school and spot the signature red bomber jacket, you will know that it is being worn by someone who is selfless, trusted, a good role model and who believes in a greater cause than themselves. Now, look up “hero” in the dictionary.
