“The City Year volunteers were truly inspirational. They improve the life chances of so many with their commitment, determination and good humour. They bring enormous benefits for the young people at William Ellis whilst at the same time gaining invaluable skills and experience which will help them to stand out to employers and equip them for the workplace. It was a pleasure to talk to them and to some of the students they have been working with and to hear about the impact of the scheme. I hope it will continue to go from strength to strength.”
