Boston Transformer Fire Affecting Communications at City Year Chicago

UPDATE: All communications infrastructure is now operational across the City Year network. That means we’re back in business here at City Year Chicago so the blog will be back to its regular schedule later today. Thanks for your patience! 

Due to a transformer fire on Tuesday evening in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood (where City Year’s Headquarters is located)  all phone, Internet, and E-mail communication to City Year Chicago has been interrupted. Crews in Boston are working to fix this issue and restore power and IT functions as quickly as possible.

If you need to reach out someone on the City Year Chicago staff please contact them by calling their mobile device.

Due to these communications challenges, City Year Chicago’s recruitment/admissions department will need additional time to send out notifications. You should hear from us by no later than Friday, March 23.

We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to be back up and running soon.
