A Parent’s Perspective on City Year

A few months ago, our team received a glowing e-mail from a mother raving about her son’s growth — in “everything about his potential and capacity” — since coming to City Year New York to be a corps member.  Naturally we were all thrilled at her excitement, so in an effort to capture one parent’s pride, the Communications team asked if she’d be willing to be interviewed for the blog.

The following are highlights from our conversation with Rosa Agosto, proud mother of corps member Pablo Gutierrez of the IS 126 team in Long Island City, Queens.  We’re also happy to announce that Pablo has committed a second year to City Year and will staying on to be a Team Leader in the fall.  Congratulations!
