Friction Ignites Flame of Idealism at Summer Academy

City Year's annual Summer Academy is a time of celebration, information and inspiration.

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).
