Youngster Libby heads to London.Libby Smith, a graduate of the National Citizen Service programme run by the Club Doncaster Foundation, has made full use of her once in a lifetime experience by visiting 10 Downing Street.
Libby’s involvement on the scheme led to her visiting the capital, and home of Prime Minister David Cameron, where she was involved in a session on voting and democracy.
Further to this, she has now become a member of the local and regional Youth Board from the experience.
As part of the NCS project, participants are whisked away on a great adventure to take part in adrenaline filled activities before returning to Doncaster to carry out a social action project to help the region.
By participating in NCS, Libby developed skills to enhance her prospects for university and job applications, whilst also learnt how to save somebody’s life, supported the blind and experienced working on bike safety.
Furthermore, Libby developed friendships for life – meeting over 70 new people whilst on the NCS programme, which she claims was a major highlight of the scheme.
Speaking about her experience Libby said: “NCS made me overcome many fears that I never knew I had, it was a great experience.”
NCS is open to all 15-17 year olds in the region and the Club Doncaster Foundation are now recruiting the latest set of adventurers for the Spring 2016 half term and for various dates over the Summer 2016 half term.
