Today I attended the second annual Women’s Leadership Breakfast at the Detroit Athletic Club.
City Year is an education-focused, non-profit organization. City Year works with young students in areas with high dropout rates. The program places a mentor in an at-risk high school and serves as role model. In this innovative program, City Year staff commit to a year of community service. I sat at a table with a City Year staffer who works at Cody High School in Detroit. The program sounds life-changing not only for the students it serves but for the participants.
