What is the National Citizen Service and how are v getting involved?
By VJonny 16th February 11
The National Citizen Service is a brand new Government scheme set up with the aim of giving young people (predominently 16 year olds) from around the country the opportunity to take part in summer residentials – volunteering, meeting other young people, developing skills and giving back to local communities. As part of the scheme, v are teaming up with the Dame Kelly Holmes Legacy Trust and Local Authority and Further Education colleges to deliver an exciting new pilot project, Summer of a Lifetime. Summer of a Lifetime is completely free to join and a fantastic opportunity to work alongside inspiring athletes, taking part in a range of exciting outdoor activities, developing skills such as teamwork, problem solving and leadership as well as getting the opportunity to deliver social action projects within the community! With opportunities all around the country why not find one near you today. Keep up to date with the latest from Summer of a Lifetime by joining the official Summer of A Lifetime Facebook page.
