New York Associate Board
City Year New York’s Associate Board was founded in 2007 as a means by which professionals could engage with and support City Year’s service work through fundraising and volunteerism. Since then, board members have become powerful mentors for the corps, hosted incredible fundraising events, and helped the organization to build its brand.
