City Year, BusRadio Reach 1 Million Kids
BusRadio, a national radio network, brings age-appropriate music, original programming and public service messages to more than 1 million kids between the ages of 6 and 18 every weekday during their daily bus ride. BusRadio reaches more than 10,000 buses in 120 school districts in 23 states.
City Year, a nonprofit organization, encourages young people to spend a year as a mentor or tutor. BusRadio will help deliver that message.
"Our partnership with BusRadio is an innovative way to directly share City Year's commitment to helping young people make a difference with students," said Michael Brown, CEO and Co-Founder of City Year.
Steven Shulman, president and co-founder of BusRadio, adds that his company supports City Year's aims and hopes to introduce young people to "the importance of civic engagement and social entrepreneurship in their communities."
