Sheffield Wednesday are calling on school leavers to take part in a national government scheme encouraging teens to volunteer in their local community.
The National Citizen Service with the SWFC Community Programme offers 16-year-olds from the Sheffield area the chance to take part in voluntary activities within the city.
As part of the course, participants get involved in social action projects and enjoy residential trips to the Lake District and Derbyshire Dales where outdoor pursuits, teambuilding activities and leadership sessions will be part of the agenda.
NCS, which forms part of the Government’s Big Society agenda, aims to help build a responsible and engaged society.
It brings together 16-year-olds from different backgrounds to work together for the good of their communities while developing skills and confidence.
SWFC Community Manager Marcus Brameld, said of the scheme: "After successfully running NCS for two years, we can guarantee a challenging and fun-packed programme, which will help young people to build their confidence, make new friends, and make a difference.”
The Community Programme has 150 places on this course; with 60 available for a July start and a further 90 in August.
To find out more attend our half-term recruitment event at Hillsborough Stadium from 2.00pm - 4.00pm and 5.00pm – 7.00pm on Tuesday 19 February 2013. Alternatively visit the Community section at www.swfc.co.uk or call 0114 2212215.
