City Year is a non-profit organisation that offers a diverse group of young people an opportunity to volunteer in a year of full-time service, giving them the skills and opportunities to make the world a better place.
These diverse young leaders help children in schools and communities across Johannesburg, where they act as tutors, mentors and role models.
