What if every student aged 18-25 pursued a year of service? What might they learn about being a part of something bigger than themselves? For Andrew Stein, it was a transformational time that defined purpose and set the direction for his career as Executive Director of City Year Detroit. As a City Year corps member right out of college, Andrew learned about serving a community, which revealed a new definition of success - one consisting of people building vibrant careers running nonprofits and serving in government, making a difference through the work they do. This week on the Make Meaning podcast, Lynne talks with Andrew about the impact City Year is having in Detroit public schools, and how meaning and fulfillment ultimately drove his pivotal career shift from big-city law to big-city nonprofit work. Find out more about how Andrew Stein and City Year Detroit corps members build relationships with kids and schools to improve performance, strengthen futures, and make a difference every day.
