National Citizen Service
In partnership with the Football League Trust, Cabinet Office and Department for Education, Fleetwood Town Community Trust is delivering The National Citizen Service (NCS). NCS brings together 16 – 17 year olds from different backgrounds in a programme of challenge, service and learning, enabling them to develop the confidence, skills and attitudes they need to become more engaged with their communities and to become active and responsible citizens.
Fleetwood Town FC have successfully delivered the NCS programme for 4 years and are now looking to recruit the next batch of students for 2018.
Below is a breakdown of our 2018 programme;
The first phase of the NCS programme is a 5 day full time residential programme with a focus on teamwork and outdoor physical challenges, games and adventures. Whilst away you will engage in activities such as; kayaking, Rock Climbing, Abseiling, archery, mountain biking along with many others.
The second phase is another residential, this time closer to home where the young people will be living in student accommodation, developing independence by managing food budget for the week and having your own flat to maintain whilst focusing on developing new skills for work and life. During this residential, the groups will engage in activities such as first aid training, Come dine with me style cooking challenges, the Apprentice, work experience opportunities along with many other fun and exciting tasks.
Social Action Project
The final phase of the NCS programme involves participants This involves designing and delivering a project that either has an impact on your local community or raises money for charity. This Project is student led and supported by NCS staff.
Finally, when you’ve completed your community action project, it’s time to celebrate at a graduation party where you’ll receive a certificate signed by the Prime Minister and get access to unique opportunities to keep volunteering and stay connected to your local area and NCS.
