In June of 2022, City Year San Antonio created and finalized our Five-Year Pandemic Recovery Plan, sponsored by Valero which has five key priorities that will deepen our impact across San Antonio for students, AmeriCorps members, and our partners.
This work is only possible through collaboration. Below you can learn more about the City Year San Antonio family and the work we have been doing in San Antonio for over 25 years!
We created our Circle of Champions shortly after solidifying our Five-Year Pandemic Recovery Plan. These champions are strategic partners and we send regular updates to Champions regarding our progress toward our goals.
