At a City Year Opening Day ceremony, young leaders across the country pledge to serve, dedicating a year of their lives to making an impact on the students and communities we serve. Opening Day ceremonies are the literal and symbolic beginning to a new year of helping students change their educational outcomes and their futures. 

On September 26, please join City Year San Jose/ Silicon Valley in celebrating our 94 AmeriCorps Members as they begin their year of service at nine schools impacting more than 4,000 students in the Alum Rock Union School District of East San Jose.
