Do you have a teenager who would love to have fun? Perhaps you’ve struggled to find residential activities for them to take part in because of their additional needs? Or maybe funds have stopped you giving them the opportunities you may have liked to?

If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, the National Citizen Service (NCS) may just be worth you checking out.

Not only do they have support available for young people with additional needs, but they also have discretionary bursaries available for families in need.

And with an aim to bring together young people with different backgrounds, and showing them how they can effect change and be in charge of their own lives there can be few programmes available, that would better reflect our young people’s needs.

So What Exactly Do They Do?

  • NCS provide once in a lifetime opportunities for year eleven students, the perfect end to their GCSE year.
  • Programmes last two to four weeks and the place during the summer holidays, ideal for ensuring the words ‘I’m bored’ never reach their lips.
  • With a focus on building confidence, making friends and learning the kind of life skills that can’t be taught in the classroom, they will ensure this summer is one your teen will never forget.
  • The programme consists of outdoor team-building exercises, a residential for participants to learn ‘life skills’, a community based social action project and an end of programme celebration event.
  • In short it aims to take young people away for their comfort zones and give them an opportunity to see who they really are, building their strength of character and enabling them to connect with their community

What Does It Cost?

At only £50 for the entire programme, inclusive of food, accommodation, actives, and any additional support given – the programme is not only excellent value but fully inclusive – as a mum and a teacher nothing could make me happier!

There are still places available for Year 11s to take part in this once in a lifetime opportunity this summer. To sign up now go to the NCS website.

What Will Your Teen Gain?

  • By coming together with young people from a wide range of backgrounds your Teen will gain a better understanding of their peers, peers who they may never otherwise have met.
  • Whilst bonding over a shared experience teens will become better individuals and therefore better citizens.

What Are NCS Hoping?

NCS want to bring together more than 100,000 teenagers, this year alone, giving them one common purpose.

This means that 1 in 6 year 11 students in the country will come together, live together, develop skills together and build community projects together.

They don’t want anything to stand in the way of making this happen, of making a difference. So if you have concerns, about support, about finances or are worried about fitting it in around other commitments and holiday plans thy would still love you to register. NCS will then do everything the can to get Teens on a programme that is right for them.

There are still places available for Year 11s to take part in this once in a lifetime opportunity this summer. To sign up now go to the NCS website.
