“What impresses me about City Year is the dedication and pride of these young people who are giving up a year of their lives to support, encourage and inspire disadvantaged students to do better in school. In return, the transferable skills the volunteers develop, alongside their leadership training, will stand them in good stead, not only to secure a first foot on the job ladder after their City Year, but for the rest of their lives.”
