NATIONAL CITIZENSHIP SERVICE PROGRAMME

"Once in a lifetime opportunity"

**Calling all Year 11s**

Argyle Community Trust are giving the opportunity to Year 11 students and young people to make this summer their best summer by giving them the opportunity to enrol with NCS.

ARGYLE Community Trust...

are delivering NCS programmes to hundreds of youngsters across our region, and we are now accepting applications for the summer of 2017.
NCS begins with a week of adventure with a wide range of exciting activities, such as paddle boarding, surfing, rock climbing, abseiling, kayaking, sailing and quarry-steering.

 

With wave 1 week 1 starting in Torquay and participants will get the opportunity to gain key life skills and be given the opportunity to part take in fantastic activities hosted by specialist activity specific coach/mentors. Moving on from a week packed full of engaging outdoor activity, participants then takes up residence at Wadebridge’s Manor House for a second week designed to prepare our school-leavers for the opportunities available whilst living independently.

 

What we do:-

After the two week-long residential trips, each participant will learn valuable work-specific skills and qualifications during a planning week where the venue will be local to participants. It is throughout this time each participant has the chance to improve their CV by gaining accreditations which will help them to deliver a local community Social Action Project (SAP).

The young volunteers will also carry out a 30 hours voluntary placement in their local community, using all the new skills and friendships they have made since the start of the project. Last year saw groups of young people redecorating local classrooms, delivering major football festivals for young children and serving up a three-course meal for local senior citizens, some other SAP’s include Working and caring for the local community with rewarding projects such as building and developing a sensory garden in areas that are visible to the public, building and developing youth centres, raising money for local or countrywide charities.

“It really is a once in a lifetime opportunity”

 

WHEN?-   Wave 1- July 17th Torquay & 24th July Wadebridge
