As City Year’s National Student Leadership Development Sponsor, Bank of America supports programs focused on helping underserved middle and high schools students graduate with the education and life skills needed to access post-secondary educational opportunities. Bank of America has supported City Year and young people who make positive change in their schools and communities for more than 25 years. In 1988, predecessor institution Bank of Boston became a founding sponsor of City Year, Inc. and was the first company in the nation to sponsor a City Year team. Bank of America has served as Presenting Sponsor of City Year’s annual convention and its 15th anniversary, and played a pivotal role in the purchase and development of City Year’s national headquarters by supporting tax-exempt bond financing and bridge financing for the project.
"By supporting young leaders – City Year corps members and Young Heroes – who are making a difference in their community, we are helping build the next generation of leaders to take on pressing community challenges. Together, Bank of America and City Year are working to enable young adults to be more engaged citizens who have the tools and resources to affect positive change in their communities."
