In the final two months of our service year, City Year Washington, DC AmeriCorps Members hosted five service days and engaged 613 volunteers in nearly 3000 hours of service!
Highlights from our recent service days include:
Comcast volunteers helped beautify Houston Elementary school with indoor and outdoor projects including murals, garden boxes, and building and painting a new sign for the school.
CEB volunteers worked to beautify the exteriors of two of our partner schools – Stanton Elementary and Garfield Elementary – with landscaping projects including planting flowers and building garden boxes for classes to grow their own produce for the surrounding community.
Dimension Data volunteers painted several murals at Amidon-Bowen Elementary featuring portraits of diverse figures with inspirational quotes as well as one with the school's motto: "Work hard, Persist, Succeed."
Deloitte volunteers helped kick off the planning time for City Year’s Summer Leadership Academy – a week-long program for DC public school students to review academic skills before the start of a new school year. In addition to taking inventory of supplies and assisting with recruitment calls, volunteers designed new evaluation systems to help City Year measure the effectiveness of our programming.
Clifford Chance volunteers built on the work of a previous service day and stained eight garden boxes and one trellis bench build by Dimension Data volunteers. They also helped organize the library at Amidon-Bowen.
Because of your support, this year we helped over 2,000 volunteers serve 111,385 hours and donate $430,948 in value to the city of Washington, DC. We’re very proud of all the hard work our volunteers put in to help make our communities better and grateful for your support this year. We couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you.
