  • Pathways to Progress: ServiceWorks Program Launch Ceremony

    By Brandee McHale, Chief Operating Officer, Citi Foundation August 06, 2014 01:08 PM

    The power of service was front and center this past week as the newest group of AmeriCorps VISTAs proudly proclaimed: "I am an AmeriCorps member and I will get things done," before setting off to begin their work with low-income youth in cities across the United States.

    This group of 50 AmeriCorps VISTA members became the inaugural cohort of ServiceWorks, created by Points of Light, the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) and the Citi Foundation. These inspiring young men and women will work with thousands of underserved youth over the next year to help them develop the skills they need for college and careers. ServiceWorks is a key component of the Citi Foundation's recently launched Pathways to Progress campaign: a three-year, $50 million commitment to unlock new opportunities and jump-start career readiness for 100,000 low-income youth.

    At Citi, corporate citizenship is not a stand-alone initiative. We integrate our citizenship efforts and community support into all of our core business activities.

    Last week, Citi was recognized as the top financial services company and the second ranked organization overall in The Civic 50 survey - the first comprehensive ranking of S&P 500 corporations that measures how well companies use their time, talent, and resources to improve the quality of life in the communities where they do business.

    The survey was conducted by the National Conference on Citizenship and Points of Light, the nation's definitive experts on civic engagement, in partnership with Bloomberg LP.
