Bank of America
More than 30 years of partnership supporting the next generation of college and career-ready leaders.
Over more than 30 years of partnership, Bank of America and City Year have worked together to increase college and career preparedness for young people through leadership and professional development programming and support. In 1988, predecessor institution Bank of Boston became a founding sponsor of City Year and was the first company in the nation to sponsor a team of City Year AmeriCorps members. Bank of America played a pivotal role in the purchase and development of City Year’s national headquarters building in Boston by supporting tax-exempt bond financing and bridge financing for the project.
In 2011 our partnership expanded to the U.K. and most recently in 2019, Bank of America expanded their support to City Year’s program in South Africa.
Bank of America’s partnership with City Year is rooted in our shared belief in the power of building young civic leaders. Helping young people build success is one way we advance economic and social progress in the communities we serve in the US, UK and South Africa.
