Together we give for #GivingTuesday
Mark your calendars! Giving Tuesday is back for 2023 and will be celebrated on 28 November. See below how you can get involved and help us tackle educational inequality.
Giving Tuesday – 28 November 2023
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 ‘Together we give’ – where everyone can show the importance of collective action for the charities and organisations they support, give money to, volunteer for, and give their time or items to.
Why support City Year UK?
We enable diverse young adults to volunteer full-time, for a year in schools with a high proportion of pupils eligible for free school meals. Our volunteers have a holistic impact in schools; they are trained and supported to inspire, mentor and tutor children of all ages to overcome social, emotional and academic barriers to learning and, by realising pupils’ potential, realise their own.
Often volunteering in their own communities, our young adults gain real world experience and over 170 hours of dedicated leadership and development training. They leave with standout skills and new networks that set them up for any career.
Our work is now more important than ever. See below for ways that you can get involved. From everyone here at City Year UK, thank you for your continuing support on Giving Tuesday and every other day!
Ways to get involved
You can also nominate us for the Benefact Group’s #MovementforGood for a chance to become one of the charities to receive a £1000 grant this December. The grant will help us fund the living and travel costs of one of our amazing volunteers.
