About Us > Our History >> Service In Schools >>> Leadership Development


On top of the work it does in schools, City Year South Africa puts its Service Leaders through a rigorous training and leadership development programme. There is an emphasis throughout the year on developing civic knowledge and skills, and equipping young people with the tools to be active, responsible participants in our society.

Service Leaders are provided with both accredited and non-accredited training, designed to help them be successful as they move on to the next step in their lives, beyond the City Year programme.


Training Components include:

Business Management

Environmental Management

Basic Computer Skills

Career Development Training

Training is provided by accredited service providers at City Year South Africa’s HQ in Johannesburg.

On Fridays City Year South Africa’s corps comes together for Leadership Development Days. These days are designed to develop the leadership skills of our Service Leaders, by giving them access to leaders from all sectors of society.
