I received some exciting news last week regarding an initiative being run at Peterborough United Football Club. Please see below for details.
National Citizen Service (NCS) is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity open to all 15-17 year olds across England. Teens meet and learn how to work with diverse groups of people they don’t normally get the chance to meet.
NCS helps teach the skills employers say they are increasing looking for in candidates: confidence, teamwork and leadership skills.
Every teen can participate, whether they are academic, sporty or creative and regardless of income, background or ambitions.
Delivered by Peterborough United Foundation, you can have the experience of a lifetime this Summer with every young person who sign’s up to the programme receiving 2 free tickets to a Peterborough United FC match.
Peterborough United Foundation is the official charity of Peterborough United Football Club and works with people of all ages in the Greater Peterborough area. Peterborough United prides itself on being a Community Club and, through the Foundation, recognises its responsibility to the local area.
You can sign up to NCS in Peterborough for the small fee of £50* (which includes transport to and from Culmington Manor, all accommodation, food, all activities and graduation event) and can look forward to the following:
Away Residential – Starting Monday 21st July 2014
Spend 5 days and 4 nights at Culmington Manor in Shropshire and enjoy activities such as canoeing, rock climbing, abseiling, archery, team building and plenty more fun in the sun!
Home Residential – Starting Monday 28th July 2014
Spend 5 days and 4 nights at a venue in Peterborough where you will learn new skills, build your confidence and self-esteem and even take part in our very own ‘Come Dine with Me’ challenge
Social Action Project – Starting 4th August 2014
Now is the time to put your new found confidence and skills into practice and make a real difference in your local community! YOU and your team are in charge and are responsible for planning and carrying out a project of your choice that will benefit your local area – whether it’s revamping a school playground, arranging a tea party for elderly residents or holding a family funday – the choice is yours! What would make a real difference to your local community?
Graduation – Date TBC
There’s only one way to celebrate what you and all your new friends have achieved this Summer, and that’s with an Official Graduation Ceremony. Get your best outfit on and bring your family to Peterborough United Football Club to celebrate your fantastic achievement and receive your NCS Certificate signed by our Primeminister – David Cameron.
So now you’ve completed NCS, your CV looks great, you’re feeling great and you’re ready to take on the world – well the fun doesn’t stop there! Not only do we run a graduate programme for everyone who completes NCS but you could also be given the opportunity to come back as a volunteer and experience it all again but this time you’ll have the added responsibility of making sure the next cohort of young people have the best time possible!
‘If you are in doubt about whether to sign up, my advice is do it. Definitely do it. It only costs £50 to take part in something that’s fun, where you make new friends, and is memorable for a lifetime’ Robert Austin – NCS Graduate
