Hasbro Day of Joy 2018
On December 13, 2018, Hasbro employees around the world spent the day spreading holiday cheer to children through volunteer projects, acts of kindness, and toy and game donations. City Year Providence was grateful to support their efforts to bring joy to our students in appreciation for all their hard work!
The Power of the Uniform
Our uniform represents unity: unity among our teammates, the site’s corps, with those who have served before us, and will after us. The City Year uniform represents the values we made a pledge to embody: commitment to a service greater than us, belief in the power of ourselves and our students, leadership of the highest quality, empathy and a need to understand, inclusivity and social justice for all, ubuntu: the philosophy we are ourselves through other people, teamwork, and excellence incorporated into all we do.
A New School Partnership

On that same day, my fellow AmeriCorps members and I started our brand-new partnership with Young Woods Elementary School.
A Day in the Life of a City Year Providence AmeriCorps Member
In order to have a successful day serving students, City Year AmeriCorps members must remember to have an open heart, positive mind and can-do attitude. Service can be long, challenging and overwhelming, but when an AmeriCorps member has these three qualities, the long days become even more rewarding, fulfilling and heartwarming. As you read on, you’ll get a glimpse into what a typical day is like for a City Year AmeriCorps member at Roger Williams Middle School.
