In May, along with nearly 900 other City Year champions – including school partners, public officials, alumni, and donors new & old – City Year celebrated 30 years of service and leadership in Boston. Jonathan Lavine, Co-Managing Partner of Bain Capital Credit and National Board Chair of City Year from 2013 to 2019, was honored with the 30th Anniversary Legacy Award. City Year co-founder and CEO Michael Brown was also celebrated, and attendees heard from one of Michael's earliest mentors, Secretary Leon Panetta.
With hundreds of City Year alumni present, it was awe-inspiring to pay tribute to all the young leaders who have donned the red jacket over the last three decades. Click here to view photos from the event.
City Year was able to raise $1,762,621 for work with students in the Boston Public Schools, including more than $330,000 pledged in new investments at the event.
This support ensures that passionate and purposeful young leaders can continue to serve as tutors, mentors, and role models to nearly 15,000 BPS students.
A special thanks to the 21 Bain Capital employees who attended the evening and, combined with the event sponsorship, raised $120,620 for City Year Boston.
