 The program benefits also extend to our volunteers. Our volunteers are exposed to in depth trainings; this goes beyond the C.I.T.Y curriculum to include courses on emotional intelligence, presentation delivery and public speaking that aid the personal development of the volunteers. Through tasks assigned to them, volunteers are exposed to new skills and are stretched to new heights of knowledge and expertise. By virtue of our extensive partnership network, our volunteers are also opened to other work opportunities (both full and part time) based on our referral and their stellar performance during the C.I.T.Y program. Most of all, volunteers enjoy the satisfaction that comes with helping others excel and are filled with a greater sense of purpose and achievement.

CITY 2015 was a great experience for me as well as challenging. I had the opportunity of working with great volunteers with a heart of service, leaders/campers that possessed a high level of intelligence and individuals who were eager to learn and interested in creating a great future. This period thought me the true value of Leadership and emotional intelligence and that great things can be accomplished by people who have a vision. Indeed, it was a wonderful time

“C.I.T.Y. 2015 was humbling for me. I’ve been a volunteer at C.I.T.Y in previous years but here I met with new volunteers who were so passionate about their tasks. They inspired and motivated me to give and do more than I knew I could. My experience ended with a lesson, one that I’ve learnt before but I’ll keep learning and it’s this: you may feel ordinary but once you get out of your shell to help other people, to add value to others, then you have stepped in to the extraordinary, then you are more than ordinary” – Leye Adetona

Working with C.I.T.Y, I was able to take up roles I never imagined to have ever been able to do. I had the opportunity to inspire young minds. I felt very accomplished when I facilitated a course and the leaders in my squad gave me positive feedback on how they enjoyed the session. I was also able to practice some untapped public speaking skills. C.I.T.Y 2015 gave me a whole new experience and it was a great one indeed

To have someone tell me “thank you for giving me an opportunity I may have never had”…that was truly a great moment for me
