“I love City Year, they always give us such fun clubs!”

“City Year are smart, they help you understand everything and they never give up – if you need help just ask them and they do their best.” 

“If there could be a City Year forever, I would be so happy.” 

“City Years are like my translators in class. They understand what I am trying to say and can explain it to the teachers so that I don’t get myself in trouble”.
