What We Do

#makebetterhappen

Every year, nearly 3,000 young people join City Year and dedicate 11 months to make a lasting impact on students and communities across the country. #makebetterhappen is a place where you can hear some of the great things that are happening every day, from the corps members themselves. It’s a place where thousands of stories all add up to #makebetterhappen.

Hi, I’m Emma! I recently graduated from UC Davis where I majored in American Studies with an emphasis in Environmental Education. In my free time I enjoy trying out new recipes and playing the piano. I’m so excited to get to know the Sacramento area better, and especially become more familiar with the community here at Rosa Parks.
