HSBC is a company with a legacy of providing young people with educational opportunity and, in 2015, celebrated its 150th year anniversary with an additional $150 million donation to partners across the world. Those partnerships included an expanded relationship with City Year that provides critical support to students and supports the implementation of an industry proven process for measuring City year's effectiveness with students while pinpointing individual instructional needs. Through HSBC’s support, City Year will be able to more effectively identify new math assessment tools and scale them to all 27 cities and school districts in which we serve.
HSBC is also sponsoring teams of City Year AmeriCorps members in five cities – Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, New York and Washington D.C. – to deepen support for students in high-need schools. Lastly, HSBC is engaging its employees in high-impact service projects to help transform schools and offer professional development opportunities for City Year AmeriCorps members.
