The National Citizen Service (NCS) is a National Government programme of personal development for young people. Groups of young people are guided by experienced and skilled team leaders and support staff to get jobs done for organisations.
The project is aimed at building their confidence in skills such as project management and leadership and helps put them to them to good use within their own local community. Albion in the Community have run this programme with great success for 3 years in Brighton and Hove.
This summer they have 180 young people aged between 16 and 18, who will have completed two weeks of challenge and skills workshops in their teams of 15. In the second two weeks, they plan and deliver a Social Action Project with a local organisation or charity.
They have 30 hours each to offer to their project – that’s 450 hours each team – a lot is possible in that time!. From sporting fun days to sponsored walks, from brightening up old people’s homes to creating a stunning professional mural in London Road railway station – anything is possible! They are now looking for a range of opportunities for this summer 2015 .
