Red Jacket Gala

Online ticket sales for the 2021 Red Jacket Gala are coming soon.

City Year Philadelphia’s Annual Red Jacket Gala is a special event that brings together City Year champions for an engaging evening of inspiration. Join us as we celebrate Philadelphia’s school students and the work of City Year AmeriCorps members who dedicate one year of their lives to serve alongside teachers in our city’s systemically under-resourced schools.

This unique event is an immersive and engaging experience that will allow attendees to network with other local education champions and hear first-hand accounts of service from City Year Philadelphia AmeriCorps members.

The event also honors an individual who has shown extraordinary leadership in the community as Idealists of the Year. This year we will be honoring an amazing individual:
