City Year Comes to City Hall

This morning I greeted more than 120 City Year volunteers in the Tom Bradley Ball Room at the top of City Hall at their annual Civic Awareness Day. Today’s seminar allows these volunteers to discuss their work with local officials and learn more about how city government works. City Year volunteers dedicate a year of service to addressing some of the most pressing educational needs in the schools that need them the most. In only its second year of existence here in Los Angeles, City Year volunteers have spent thousands of hours helping to ensure L.A. students have the resources needed for success.
