As the first of the 3 rolling admission deadlines approaches, City Year stepped into high gear to reach their quota of applications for the year. The application process isn’t easy, after 1000 applicants submitted applications last year a little over 200 were picked for this year’s service opportunity. The last couple of weeks my internship was filled with e-mailing, posting, and career fairs. Through massive e-mails, I was successfully able to set up over 20 classroom presentations and currently working on various meetings with different organizations on campus. The work I’m doing is helping to build awareness and help City Year not only recruit people for a year of service, but reminding people of the importance of giving back to their community.
