Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

As a former City Year Greater Philadelphia corps member, I can tell you that this is a wonderful opportunity to truly serve in communities throughout the city of Philadelphia. I have never been a Youth Group Leader, but I tutored and mentored youth and actively engaged in volunteerism. This a position of endurance and it has phenomenal rewards. The children are eager to learn and develop their leadership, and (in return) become a face of positivity in their communities. Whether you become a Youth Group Leader or a Corps Member, City Year Greater Philadelphia is the site to join.
