This annual day of service offers a wide range of volunteer opportunities to work alongside community and non-profit partners to help improve our cities and neighborhoods. Many of the youth involved with Citi Foundation's Pathways to Progress initiative are also participating in volunteer events globally.

"Every day, we take pride in having a business model that contributes to society by enabling growth and economic progress. Now in its 14th year, Global Community Day offers our Citi colleagues around the world the opportunity to pursue this mission through volunteerism," said Citi CEO Mike Corbat. "The enormous turnout we see every year is a great reflection on our people and shows their sincere commitment to the communities we serve."
