What? Would you like to re-phrase that, preferably into some semblance of English?

I've tried to find information on this Volunteer Corps idea - but there's nothing on the internet. Google has failed me. Anyone know where to find it?

As I'm an unemployed layabout at the moment.... ;)

From HM Treasury website:
The Pre-Budget Report announced our support in principle for the creation of a gap year volunteer corps, supporting financially low income school-leavers who give a year of their time to community service. I can announce today that so strong is the interest from the voluntary sector that the first pilot for this new volunteer corps will start next month.

gap year refers to students taking a year out between college and uni
That wasn't what I asked. I asked you to re-write your original statement.

*sigh* nevermind. "College" obviously didn't do you much good.

And as for "next month" - it depends where you go to school. Some "leaving" exams are over by mid-May.

I know I'm a pedant.

And the "volunteer" employment for myself was tongue in cheek - but - oh yes - a winking smiley doesn't denote that. Damn.
