Creating impact in the neighborhoods we serve.

Bain Capital and its employees have contributed to City Year’s development, growth and success for three decades through a wide range of philanthropic support, including more than $50 million in financial contributions. Hundreds of Bain Capital employees have participated in volunteer projects, given their expertise as advisors and board members, and made generous financial contributions to the organization. City Year’s relationship with Bain Capital dates back to its founding. The firm was one of the first contributors to City Year’s endowment in 1988 and was instrumental in the founding of City Year Boston’s annual Investment Community Breakfast.

Bain Capital has sponsored teams of AmeriCorps members for over 17 years, helping develop and support hundreds of young idealists dedicating a year or more to national service. The firm has committed to sponsoring teams of corps members serving in Boston, New York, Providence and Silicon Valley. In prior years, the firm has served as the Presenting Sponsor of the Red Jacket Society Leadership Conference, the National Investors Summit and City Year Boston’s Starry Night Gala.

Bain Capital believes that investing in young people creates stronger communities. That’s why we partner with City Year. Together, we help students at public schools achieve their dreams, and support the AmeriCorps members who set an example for all of us with their civic service.

Andy Viens Managing director of Bain Capital Credit

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Bain Capital continued its support to help City Year and corps members serve students, schools and communities during an unprecedented time. Following school closures in spring 2020 and throughout this academic year, City Year AmeriCorps members have kept students and their families connected and engaged with their school communities.

Speaking about the partnership, Jonathan Lavine, co-managing partner of Bain Capital and chief investment officer of Bain Capital Credit, said, “City Year and Bain Capital share a common belief that supporting young people’s education, growth and development is the single most important investment we can make in our future. City Year is an incredible double bottom-line investment. It helps students in public schools succeed, and at the same time develops AmeriCorps members into civic-minded leaders of tomorrow.’’

Bain Capital, one of the world’s leading private multi-asset alternative investment firms, has supported a wide array of charitable and nonprofit organizations like City Year in communities around the world through Bain Capital Community Partnership, making a lasting impact in the neighborhoods where their employees work and live.

Cultivating strong relationships with students & teachers

Research confirms what many educators have long known: learning happens through relationships, and they’re foundational for student success coaches to support students. Strong relationships between students and adults who work with them are critical to fuel student growth, resilience and education equity.

Academic support and social emotional skill building

Learning is like weaving a rope. All of us pull together different strands of social, emotional and academic skills to solve problems, work with others, and express new ideas—and you can’t improve one skill without focusing on the others. As student success coaches, City Year AmeriCorps members help students weave together strong skills ropes through interventions that focus on not only academic content, but also offer opportunities to strengthen social and emotional skills.

Enhancing whole school climate and student belonging

Student success coaches work with educators to help create a welcoming school environment, which is essential for whole school improvement. City Year uses a variety of tools and programming to help create a positive school environment, including school-wide events, lunchtime clubs, and something we call Whole School Greeting, where AmeriCorps members greet students and faculty as they enter the school building, setting the tone for the day and sending a clear message of joy and belonging.

AmeriCorps member training and professional development

  • Student progress monitoring
