City Year helps young people from deprived communities succeed by boosting confidence, aspirations and academic performance.
With Deutsche Bank’s support, a team of corps members work with pupils aged 11-18 at Haggerston School in London four days a week. They run breakfast clubs, work one-to-one with students who need extra attention, supervise playtimes and lead after school activities.
The regular personal attention and learning support they provide over the course of a year helps improve attendance, behaviour and attainment amongst the pupils at the school.
For the corps members, involvement in City Year provides valuable leadership training, mentoring and work experience.
Deutsche Bank employees support the programme, in both London and Birmingham, inside and outside the classroom as mentors and volunteers to the corps members.
