About City Year UK

City Year UK is a youth social action charity which challenges 18 to 26-year-olds to tackle educational inequality through full-time social action. As mentors, tutors and role models in schools, these young adults support pupils growing up in some of the most disadvantaged communities in the UK.

The City Year experience empowers these exceptional and diverse young adults to realise their aspirations and grow as leaders, both through their impact on children’s lives and through training, coaching and career development opportunities they receive throughout the year.

What makes our participants extraordinary is their ambition to improve the lives of children, a willingness to stand up as a role model, the desire to keep learning themselves and the determination and resilience to see the year through.
