Friction Ignites Flame of Idealism at Summer Academy
City Year's annual Summer Academy is a time of celebration, information and inspiration. It's a chance that all staff and senior AmeriCorps members have to hear about the new things happening in City Year, connect with other sites around the country, and be re-introduced to what we do, why we do it, and how we need to do it. But, this year we also challenged each other to not only see the things that we want to change in the world, but also to look in the mirror and see what we needed to change in ourselves (insert Michael Jackson song here).
