Our Stories

Volunteering full time with City Year UK is an experience unlike any other.

Our volunteer mentors come from a wide range of backgrounds but are united in one common goal: to better themselves and to better the lives of children. Every experience is unique but there are universal themes that characterise what you will get out of City Year: a challenge; an adventure; a learning experience; a career boost; leadership development; a lot of fun; friendships for life; and last but not least, the chance to tackle educational inequality, one of the biggest social issues in the UK.

Everyone has a story – and these are some of ours.

 

A YEAR OF CHANGE, A LIFETIME OF OPPORTUNITY.
