Comcast NBCUniversal Leadership Awards 2019
Share |


The Comcast NBCUniversal Leadership Awards recognize outstanding City Year alumni who are continuing their commitment to strengthening community, inspiring, mobilizing, and empowering others, creating and developing sustainable solutions for social change and who exemplify the core values of City Year.

Since 1995, more than 100 alumni have been honored with a Leadership Award – City Year’s most prestigious alumni recognition. These awards honor the accomplishments of City Year alumni who continue to build stronger communities through innovative approaches to addressing critical social problems. Since 2005, Comcast NBCUniversal has recognized 66 City Year alumni with our highest alumni recognition – the Comcast and NBCUniversal Leadership Award. These alumni have continued to build stronger communities through innovative approaches to addressing critical social problems.

For more than 25 years, City Year alumni have been making a difference in their community both inside and outside of City Year. This year, nominations will be reviewed and selected from two categories – alumni who continue their impact through community-focused initiatives and alumni who continue to serve as a City Year staff member.


We encourage you to nominate a City Year alumna or alumnus who best exemplifies City Year ideals and its core values.
