looking for an experience of a lifetime?

23 April 2013

Burton Albion Community Trust has teamed up with Staffordshire County Council and the NCS (National Citizen Service) Network to offer an exciting opportunity for 16-17 year olds this summer.

NCS is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for young people to help build skills for work and life, whilst taking on new challenges and meeting new friends. 

The programme begins in July and will consist of an exciting 5 days away from home in the great outdoors. Meet new people, build your confidence, and try new challenges led by fully qualified staff. 

Another 5 day local residential follows to discover more about your community and learn vital new skills. Participants will design a project to help a local charity or cause of their choice and deliver this within the local community within 30 hours across a number of days.

On completion of the programme, it’s time to dress up and party at the graduation ceremony to celebrate your achievements. You will also collect your certificate signed by the Prime Minister, with opportunities to venture overseas with the International Citizen Service.

Community Education Officer for Burton Albion Community Trust said ‘This is a fantastic opportunity for young people to gain new skills, meet new friends and build their capacity for the future. Burton Albion Community Trust are very excited to be involved in this unique programme which will also have a positive effect on the local community.’ 

The entire NCS experience, including residential, accommodation, food, transport, taster sessions, training, and graduation party is just £50 per person (Special off of £35 if you sign up before the end of April). Don’t let costs put you off, as there are bursaries available. Please ask for details.
