About the Give Back Awards

Rubber chicken dinner in a dark hotel ballroom? Not at the Give Back Awards! Now in its 3rd year, the Give Back Awards is an evening of service in honor of progressive business leaders who are committed to social responsibility and sustainable economic growth. We'll gather at the City Year's headquarters and for a brief reception and program, followed by working together to assemble care packages for students in need. Questions about what to wear or where to park? Check out our FAQ page here.

A Partnership with city year

City Year is an international non-profit that was founded in Boston in 1988 with the mission of building democracy through citizen service, civic leadership, and social entrepreneurship. City Year does this by uniting highly motivated young AmeriCorps members to serve as tutors, mentors and role models for a year in some of our nation’s highest-need schools in order to support students in reaching high school graduation on track for college and career success. During the 2018-2019 school year in Boston, AmeriCorps members served full-time in 29 Boston Public Schools, reaching 15,000 students every day.

The Give Back Awards is held at the City Year headquarters and supports their important work with an evening of service, and a donation of $50 per event attendee.

About the Awards

ELI J. SEGAL AWARD

Each year, we present this award to a senior business leader whose work and values exemplify the spirit of the late Eli J. Segal.

He led in his roles as a beacon towards collaboration and strategic vision to enact changes to our most pressing societal problems.
