"My year as a mentor was life changing"

When Rodney graduated from university he didn’t have a career in mind and was simply looking for something worthwhile. He joined City Year London in its infancy and a decade later, is a City Year UK trustee and chair of our alumni committee. In 2018, Rodney was named in Empower’s list of 50 Ethnic Minority Future Leaders.

"I have remained committed to social mobility"

Beth was one of our first volunteer mentors in the West Midlands and ended up joining our staff team and staying for a further four years! Since leaving, she has continued to support social mobility either through direct roles, or at institutions with a clear strategy to support all young people regardless of background.

She talks about the positive impact she was able to make and the difference the children made to her!
