The National Citizen Service is here in the Wakefield district!


Got a 15-17 year old around the house without plans for the summer?  

Want to get them out and about doing something useful? 

We can offer FOUR weeks of adventure, excitement, self-improvement and, some fun along the way.

Sound good? Here’s more.

The cost? Just £50!

The National Citizen Service, or NCS, is a fourweek programme run by the Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation helping to build skills, take on challenges and help improve the local community, all while meeting new people.

There are two programmes running over the summer, starting on June 22nd and July 27th, and applications are open now.

Week one sees them out and about staying at an outdoor activity centre, in an adventure filled week of activities, such as rock climbing and canoeing, whilein the second week of the programme, they’ll learn skills to set them up for life outside of school.

Accomodation and food? That’s all included in the £50 cost.

After two weeks away, they’re back at home and worklng on a project they feel passionate about to make a difference in the local community. That could be anything from something to improve the environment, or the lives of those in poverty, or tackling discrimination.

After all that hard work, it’s party time, and well deserved too!

This is a chance to get involved with something that is more than just looking good on their CV, it’s four weeks in which they’ll learn new things and develop them as a person, ready for the world after education.

Applications are open now are
