“City Year is an inspiring organisation. I spent a day wearing the City Year red jacket and serving alongside the corps members at a school in Hackney. It was a great experience and it was obvious the corps members were gaining as much from the experience as the children they were mentoring. The corps members make a big difference to the children in schools but they also develop new skills themselves, making them more competitive in the job market.”
