City Year Miami’s SOLD OUT “Paint the Town Red” Gala
City Year Miami’s Annual Paint the Town Red Gala is one of South Florida’s premier social events, uniting hundreds of influential community leaders to celebrate the achievements of 212 young men and women who have pledged a year of service to support students in Miami’s highest-need schools. Wearing their signature red jackets, City Year Miami AmeriCorps Members serve as tutors, mentors, and role models to more than 6,500 students in 18 Miami-Dade County Public Schools. AmeriCorps Members arrive before the first bell rings and stay until the last student goes home–helping to transform a school’s culture with passion, energy and idealism. Working side-by-side with teachers, they use research-based tools and techniques to help students improve their attendance, behavior, and course performance in math and English. City Year is the only national organization placing full-time, trained young adults in schools to provide individual attention to at-risk students and help them stay in school and on track to succeed.
We hope that you will join us for a night of celebration hosted by DJ Irie at the JW Marriot Marquis on Saturday, November 15, 2014 featuring a special performance by Flo Rida and keynote address by Superintendent Carvalho!
