City Year brings together a diverse group of young people for a year of voluntary service, civic engagement and leadership development. Together these young people work in teams as tutors, mentors and role models to children in various primary schools and other service sites across Gauteng.
In all its work, City Year endeavors to develop leaders for South Africa. A generation of young people who know their value in society and have the skills to make a lifelong contribution to building our nation. To this end, there is an emphasis throughout the programme on developing civic knowledge and skills, and equipping young people with the tools to be active, responsible participants in our society.
