Why did you join City Year?
To seize the opportunity to do direct, hands on service after spending my previous years coordinating service for others.

Find a great restaurant and sit on the patio enjoying tasty food.

Take full advantage of the opportunity to build relationships at City Year. The people you work for and with are tremendously talented, and not only can you leverage them for your future in many ways, but you may just find some of your best friends.

You can accomplish much more as a member of a team than you could working all on your own.
