“ City Year is a testament of what our community can do together as a public-private partnership ,” Owen concludes . “ This was the vision of our school district partners , business community and city leaders to bring in a proven education equity nonprofit to support our underserved community . After 10 years , our data and our stakeholder feedback have shown that this was a successful and meaningful decision .”
