UK Year of Service unlocks the power of the next generation to help solve some of our toughest challenges, putting them into paid positions of work and helping communities where the needs are greatest. The school service leaders who completed their UK Year of Service with City Year UK provided invaluable coaching and support to students within the schools where they were placed.

City Year UK has been a vital partner for UK Year of Service during this pilot phase, demonstrating the effectiveness of the scheme through a deep understanding of what it means to empower young people to find jobs with purpose“.
