Our vision is of a society where all children are inspired to believe in themselves and supported to excel by a generation of young people whose commitment to a year of voluntary service is universally respected.
Our mission is to empower young role models to help children from disadvantaged communities succeed in school.
City Year UK believes that young people can change the world.
As role models, mentors and tutors, our volunteer mentors support pupils from disadvantaged communities to enjoy and succeed at school.
But that’s not all. Over the course of their City Year, they also have the opportunity to develop as leaders, with the passion, values, experience and skills to go on to lead transformational change in their communities long after their year of service.
What makes our young people 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.
