Bounce back for #GivingTuesday

Mark your calendars! Giving Tuesday is back for 2021 and will be celebrated on 30 November. See below how you can get involved and help us tackle educational inequality.

Giving Tuesday – 30 November 2021

Giving Tuesday is a day where everyone, everywhere can do something to support the good causes that mean so much to them. The day is celebrated on the Tuesday following the well-known shopping days of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This year’s theme is ‘Bounce Back’ after a challenging 18 months and we’ll be focusing on highlighting how we’re doing that in a mindful and holistic way.

Why support City Year UK?

Globally, COVID-19 has disrupted over 90% of children and youth. In the UK, pupils missed over six months of in-person education – almost 5% of their educational career. 60% of graduate employers cancelled some or all of their work experience and internships and under 25-year-olds were worst hit by unemployment.

As pupils furthest from opportunity lag behind in Covid learning catch up and young adults are in need of new professional development opportunities, our work has never been more important.

We are grateful for any donation you’d like to make. By giving to City Year UK you contribute to giving every young person the chance to succeed. Your support will help us empower diverse young adults to give a year full-time in schools to support, inspire and mentor the pupils who need help most. In turn, our coaches will gain real world experience, standout skills and new networks that will set them up for any career.

And this year, we are delighted to announce that donations made by 31st December 2021 will be generously matched twice over, by one of our individual donors.
