16-17 year-olds spend weekend learning about community
A group of 16 and 17 year olds, as part of the National Citizen’s Service in partnership with Burton Albion Community Trust, spent last weekend on a three day residential trip to learn more about their community.
The group spent four days at Manor Adventure in Shropshire and undertook a varied range of projects. These included exciting outdoor team pursuit activities with the aim of team building.
As well as this, they spent three days learning about their community as well as planning to deliver a social action project to benefit their community.
Once they’ve completed their National Citizen Service award, those involved will be invited to a ‘graduation’ ceremony, which will take place at the Pirelli Stadium.
Matt Hancock from the Burton Albion Community Trust said “This residential trip formed an important part of the National Citizen Service award, and we hope all involved had a great time.
“As a club and a trust, we pride ourselves in engaging with the local community through residential trips such as these. We work extensively in providing young people with valuable life skills, which is something they will gain through the NCS award.”
The National Citizen Service is a national programme which the Burton Albion Community Trust are a local provider throughout 2014. We are currently recruiting for our summer programme.
