Service to a Cause Greater than Self Campaign

We're centering ourselves around the importance of service and how support is necessary for everyone!

We at City Year believe that service is a personal decision to dedicate one’s time, energy, and effort to a cause greater than oneself and to change the lives of others. It’s also a way to bring together diverse individuals who share a common goal while empowering them to work together. It’s through the power of service that we, as a nation, have been able to overcome seemingly impossible obstacles and ultimately aim to build a better future for us all. That’s why at City Year we make a collective effort to always demonstrate the power of service as a way to make transformational change for everyone – from the students we serve, to the communities we’re in, to our nation as a whole.


This quarter we are taking time to reflect and focus on one of City Year’s values – Service to a Cause Greater than Self. Each of us has a personal motivation or reason to commit to and serve others. By centering on our motivation and reason for serving, called “Why I Serve” statements, we hope to keep others at the center of our work and inspire others to serve their community. City Year San Jose/ Silicon Valley hopes that you join us in recognizing the value of Service to a Cause Greater than Self.


City Year continues to support students and school partners transition by offering academic and social emotional learning support. City Year San Jose/ Silicon Valley’s mission is to partner with and invest in local communities to close the educational opportunity gap through national service.

Thank you for investing in the future of our students and our community!
