Pepsi Refresh Project!

We need you to help City Year win $250,000 in the Pepsi Refresh Project to help keep more kids in school and on track across the country.

Starting this past Saturday, May 1st, for the entire month of May, City Year will be competing to win a grant through the Pepsi Refresh Project. Pepsi is giving away $20 million over the course of the year, awarded in monthly installments to groups of grant winners selected by online voting.

We know that you believe in City Year. That means that for the next 31 days, we need you to commit to vote every day, and to ask your friends and family to do the same. With the additional funds, we’ll be able to recruit 170 new corps members, who would ultimately help us reach 10,000 more children who need our help to stay in school and on track to graduate.

We’re also partnering with AmeriCorps Alums, which is competing for $50,000 to help build 25 healthier communities through projects run by their members.

Please vote today and every day in May for City Year and AmeriCorps Alums!
