Detroit Lions receiver Marvin Jones, Jr., is teaming up with City Year to launch ‘Scores for Kids,’ a campaign to raise money for City Year’s tutoring and mentoring program in Detroit’s schools.
Throughout the 2016 season, Jones is asking Lions fans to make a pledge of at least $1 for every touchdown the Lions score. All proceeds from ‘Scores for Kids’ will benefit City Year, an organization which unites highly-motivated, young adults from diverse backgrounds to engage in a year of full-time service as tutors and mentors to local youth.
City Year deploys these young people, called AmeriCorps members, in teams to high-poverty, urban schools to provide high-impact student, classroom and school-wide support. In Detroit, 71 AmeriCorps members serve in seven schools to support 5,000 students every day.
