Sign Up To Summer NCS!
The Yorkshire Cricket Foundation are delighted to announce the launch of our 2021 National Citizen Service (NCS) Summer programme taking place in July and August.
Funded by the Government, (NCS) programmes are designed for teenagers aged 16 or 17 and help them establish a clear idea of what they want from their future through the power of independent challenges, team activities and workshops.
Programmes will be running across Yorkshire including Leeds, Skipton and Richmond.
This summer, NCS will be broken down into four phases:
Be Epic: Young people will get the chance to take part in some adrenaline-fuelled activities designed to take you out of your comfort zone and build confidence.
Live life: This phase of the programme will involve a variety of activities and workshops designed to give participants the opportunity to learn and develop new skills.
Do Good: Do Good is all about the young person. This week will provide youngsters with an insight into social action and provide them with the opportunity to voice their ideas and deliver a social action project in their local community.
Go Party: The fourth and final phase takes place after the programme has finished. This will be a chance for participants to catch up with friends, reflect on their achievements and receive their NCS graduation certificate.
Alex Hipkins, NCS Manager for the Yorkshire Cricket Foundation, commented “After the year young people have had, it feels particularly exciting to be preparing to deliver the NCS programme again this summer. It really is a fantastic opportunity for any young person to develop new skills, become more confident and make so many new friends!”
“Over 200 young people will be joining us on their NCS journey this summer across both North Yorkshire and West Yorkshire and will be having a summer they will not forget. Places really are at a premium this year so if anyone does want to get involved then please grab yourself a place early this year to avoid missing out!”
