“I really enjoyed spending time with City Year’s corps members and was impressed to be asked questions on a whole range of topics by some very interesting young people. I am a firm supporter of the City Year programme as a long-term volunteering opportunity. Because of its intensity, the young people who volunteer are able to develop key skills, gain vital work experience and become active citizens, whilst at the same time having a considerable impact on the children they serve in schools.”

Rt. Hon Lord David Blunkett and Patron of City Year UK
