Building digital skills for the next generation of leaders.
Since 2001, Comcast NBCUniversal and City Year have helped build stronger communities. From a single program sponsor in Detroit to now supporting our impact in more 16 cities across the country, Comcast NBCUniversal has helped ensure students in systemically under-resourced communities are connected to the supports they need to succeed.
Comcast NBCUniversal has sponsored more than 100 teams of City Year AmeriCorps members, enabling more young people to serve students in under-resourced schools. City Year AmeriCorps members on Comcast NBCUniversal teams have served more than 2.4 million hours in communities across the country. Together, we are growing digital access, computer science and coding experiences to help students in under-resourced schools build critical skills to succeed in the digital economy.
Comcast NBCUniversal serves as our national Leadership Development and Training Sponsor. Each year, hundreds of Comcast NBCUniversal employees provide leadership development, career advice and mentorship to City Year AmeriCorps members. Through the Comcast NBCUniversal Leadership awards, the company celebrates City Year alumni who continue to make a difference in their communities. Comcast NBCUniversal also advances the national service movement on Capitol Hill and AmeriCorps as a founding member of the Voices for National Service Business Council.
