Our AmeriCorps members are completing a year of full-time service in 31 schools across LAUSD to provide students with the extra care and support they need to reach their full potential.
Now that we are a little more than halfway through the school year, we wanted to take the time to pause and thank our AmeriCorps members during City Year AmeriCorps Member Appreciation Month to give them that extra encouragement they need to stay energized and excited to finish the year strong.
Throughout the month of March we coordinated several acts of gratitude to show how much we appreciate our AmeriCorps members' service to students, schools, and communities. We joined forces with many individuals and corporations including members of the City Year Los Angeles Board and Associates Board, our school partners, All Def L.A., Aquarium of the Pacific, ArcLight, Brad Drummond & Aramark, Comcast NBCUniversal, David Shaheen & JP Morgan, Disney, Hollywood Wax Museum, Hulu, JD Heyman & Meredith, John Thomas Dye School, Jon Neuhaus, L.A. Galaxy, Larry Flax & Bottlefish, Los Angeles Clippers, Los Angeles Rams, Riot Games, Sony, Vera R. Campbell Foundation, and Warner Bros. Entertainment and more.
Below you'll find highlights from the month, including meals, trainings, gifts and activities. Thank you to all our sponsors for their generosity and unwavering belief in the power of young people!
