Change Your Teenager’s Future This Autumn

National Citizen Service (NCS) have launched their upcoming autumn 2017 programme, with places now available to Middlesbrough teenagers.

The NCS autumn programme, running during the half-term, is open to 16 and 17 year olds currently in year 12, 13 or equivalent provision and enables teenagers to:

  • Take on new challenges and build skills for work and life
  • Develop leadership, teamwork and communication skills
  • Meet incredible people
  • Boost CVs, UCAS applications and access future opportunities
  • Give back to the community

The programme costs about £1,500 per young person to deliver, but no parent or guardian will pay more than £50 (£10 depending on circumstances) – and this covers everything, including food, accommodation, travel, and all activities.

Adventure. Discovery. Action.

Starting with an action-packed four-day, three-night residential in the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales or Northumberland borders, participants will meet new people and enjoy adventure, fun and freedom.

Returning home, they’ll spend a further three days developing life skills like confidence, leadership and communication to boost their CV or UCAS personal statement.

Next up they’ll work with their NCS team to put their new skills into practice by delivering a community project of their choice, making a lasting impact on the local area.

NCS departure dates in Middlesbrough are:

  • Friday 20th October
  • Monday 23rd October
