Albuquerque, NM

Albuquerque has been a member of the Cities of Service coalition since 2012, when Mayor Richard Berry signed the Declaration of Service and committed to leveraging resident volunteers and service to achieve Albuquerque's goals. With the mayor’s leadership and the hard work of city hall staff, Albuquerque is making a major difference in a number of areas including education and health and wellness. Notably, Albuquerque has successfully engaged volunteers to feed students who experience food insecurity through an after-school homework tutoring and meal program.

Education and Youth

Homework Diner

Through Homework Diner, Albuquerque has provided hundreds of students with access to homework assistance, one-on-one time with educators, and healthy meals cooked by volunteers from a local culinary school. Students and their parents are encouraged to attend, creating the opportunity to have a family meal and enabling parents to learn how to help their students with homework. Homework Diner also provides parents with the opportunity to acquire their GED, and many have taken advantage of this option since the program's inception.
