Your support of City Year Detroit is far more than checkbook philanthropy. It enables our passionate corps members to put their idealism to work by tutoring and mentoring school children, reclaiming public spaces, and organizing after-school programs in the Detroit area. There are several ways in which corporations, individuals, and philanthropic organizations can partner with City Year Detroit:
As a team sponsor, your organization will support a team of 6 to 14 City year corps members. The Team Sponsor Program is City Year Detroit’s premier partnership opportunity and each team proudly wears their sponsor's logo on their City Year t-shirts as a visible sign of our partners' commitment to the community. You will work with our service partners and your corps member team to address community issues and develop bonds with the communities of Detroit. In addition, your team sponsorship will give your employees the opportunity to serve their communities in exciting and innovative ways.
