The title says it all. $12,500 is the goal for the annual City Year New York Corps Fundraiser. Each year as a corps we set out to raise money for City Year Enrichment Week— a week of free programming for 600 students in the four neighborhoods that we serve. Enrichment Week consists of 4 elementary school Camps, 3 middle school Summits, and 1 high school Leadership Academy and will provide a fun, educational, and safe alternative for hundreds of students throughout New York City.
Enrichment week is extremely crucial in helping instill a sense of learning, leadership, and service in our students. Students will engage in field trips, physical activities, arts curriculum, and meet distinguished guest speakers. City Year New York corps members are awarded the opportunity to serve as camp directors, managers, and hold various positions throughout the week of student programming. With our combined efforts, and tireless work ethic, we are able to run a successful and exciting week for our students.
Fundraising is crucial to City Year Enrichment Week because we provide this program free to our students. Our communities face many socio-economic challenges and many of the students we serve would never get an opportunity like this in their neighborhoods if it weren’t for City Year. We provide breakfast, lunch, and a safe environment for our students. Contributions to the City Year Corps Fundraiser go to the service, programming, and operations of running such a powerful week for our students.
So far we have raised $5,000. We have a long way to go to reach our goal and about two weeks to achieve it. Help us instill hope in our students and inspire the spirit of service through a week of enrichment!
