Thankful Thursday: City Year Alumni

There is a City Year Founding Story called “The Shoulders of Giants”, which talks about our success being reliant upon the foundations laid by previous generations. The story references Sir Isaac Newton who said, “If I have seen further than others, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.”

This Thursday, we want to recognise and thank City Year Alumni, from South Africa to the United Kingdom to the United States, who have laid the path for the impact that we are making today. City Year has grown from strength to strength over the years, spreading it’s wings to different continents, and touching the lives of hundreds of thousands of children along the way, and none of this could have been achieved were it not for idealistic young people committed to changing the world for the better.

City Year Alumni: we salute you and thank you for your service during your corps year, and your continued service since graduating. We truly are standing on the shoulders of giants.
