National Citizen Service Doncaster is well underway as young people from the local area take part in a series of thrilling and adrenaline filled activities.The programme designed for students aged between 16 and 17 in Doncaster helps build skills for work and life whilst taking on exciting adventures and challenges, before participating in a team volunteer project to help the local community.
Participants have visited both Hawkshead in the Lake District and Grinton Lodge in North Yorkshire taking part in exciting ventures in raft building, rock climbing, canoeing and many more.
Over 100 young people have taken part in the programme over the last six weeks and it continues to be a great success, with 225 young people expected to be involved by the end of Summer.
Upon completion, a graduation ceremony takes place at the Keepmoat Stadium where graduates receive a certificate signed by Prime Minister David Cameron to celebrate and acknowledge the achievements of the individuals.
Rovers Foundation Coordinator Jan Budtz said: "NCS offers a chance to be put outside the comfort zone, with activities that most people have never done before. It really is an amazing programme for young people in Doncaster aged between 16 and 17 who get to develop key skills for life and gain valuable experience in sports leadership, fundraising and first aid for example. It is also great for your CV with most employers looking for people with experience of team work and involvement in unique situations, so there is a huge benefit in it for anyone who has signed up."
The next NCS project takes place in October 2014 for students in year 12 (aged 16 & 17). We encourage you to apply quickly for the chance of a summer of a lifetime with NCS as spaces are limited. Don’t miss out!
