Jodi Harper of Granite United Way, who was a City Year volunteer for seven years, said it is a way to change the lives of thousands of kids for the better.
“We owe it to our children,” she said.
Principal Patricia Snow said the City Year team believes in the kids and inspires them to do their best and “truly makes a difference” at the school.
Gov. Maggie Hassan said she fully believes in the power of City Year’s work, a program that has improved attendance and children’s behavior. She said her mother was a high school teacher who taught her one of the most important things for a child was to have a grown-up in his or her corner each and every day. City Year, she said, does that.
