A recent NCS project saw 75 16 to 17-year-olds head to Hawkshead in the Lake District to kick start their NCS summer.
NCS is a government-funded youth programme designed to bring together young people from a wide range of backgrounds and teach them how to communicate and work as a team while contributing to their local community.
As well as taking part in outdoor activities, students had the opportunity to organise various charity events and volunteer in the Sheffield area.
The projects have varied from delivering events in a sheltered scheme in Hillsborough to organising a fundraiser at Richmond Park.
Participants from previous NCS schemes have travelled to Hawkshead in the Lake District to take part in caving, climbing and kayaking to name a few of the fun activities. This is where the youngsters were able to develop their leadership qualities, teamwork and communication skills during the adventure.
The competition ends on 11 August with the winner being announced shortly after so make sure you and your friends sign up quickly!
If you are interested in taking part in this summer’s NCS programme please contact Lucy by email - firstname.lastname@example.org or call the community office 0114 221 2215.
