In June, City Year gathers to honor corps members’ year of service by thanking them for their passion and dedication to national service. We bring in key speakers, have a diploma ceremony, and award gifts of appreciation and distinction.


Opening Day

Sponsored by Comcast NBCUniversal, Opening Day is the official swearing-in ceremony for the City Year Chicago corps. This Fall, in the company of family, friends, and supporters, more than 240 young leaders will pledge to make a difference in the schools and neighborhoods of Chicago.
