Speaker Page - City Year UK

City Year UK is a youth and education charity which empowers diverse 18 to 25-year-olds to tackle educational inequality through a year of full-time volunteering in schools.

We believe that where you start in life shouldn’t determine your future and every young person should have the chance to succeed. Our volunteers inspire, mentor and tutor children furthest from opportunity to overcome social, emotional and academic barriers to learning and, by realising pupils’ potential, realise their own. Often volunteering in their own communities, our volunteers gain real world experience, leadership skills, and new networks that will set them up for any career.

Since 2009, City Year UK has trained and supported over 1,500 young adults to coach and mentor over 15,000 pupils in need of extra help and contributed to a positive school culture for over 100,000 children. Over 90% of our volunteers move into higher education, employment or training within three months of completing their City Year. Watch our video ( ) to find out more or visit
