Teenagers across Lincolnshire have began a journey with the National Citizen Service (NCS) but there is still time for South Holland youngsters to join in.
NCS gives 16 and 17-year-olds the chance to get involved in exciting activities, develop valuable life skills, boost their confidence and improve their career prospectsl while making new friends and working in the community.
The scheme costs £35 and includes a week-long stay at an activity camp, a one-week residential stay working with a range of businesses and two weeks of working on a social action project within the community, giving participants the chance to volunteer and fundraise for organisations in the area. Kieran Hornsby (16), an NCS trainee from Crowland, said “I signed up because it looked like fun, as well as being something good to put on my CV.
“Since I started, I have already developed my team-building skills and learned life experiences that will help me in the future.”
