EFL Trust: Teenagers are pushing their limits on NCS - and spaces are still available!

13 July 2016

More than 6,000 young people across England have already dedicated their summer to NCS with the EFL Trust, but luckily there are still spaces available!

The two to four-week programme is designed to help 16 to 17-year-olds improve their confidence, learn new skills and discover how they can create real change in the community. Across the country teens have already started their NCS journey, challenging themselves through outdoor activities such as rock climbing and canoeing.

Jack Hinson, 16, from Sheffield, who is currently on NCS with Sheffield Wednesday said: “I’ve only been at NCS for a week but I’ve already made so many new friends - we’re all really enjoying the opportunity of independent living and the outdoor activities like archery and gyhll scrambling have been amazing.

“This is definitely the best way for me to spend my summer, I couldn’t recommend it enough.”

Each teenager will volunteer 30 hours of their time to the social action project, meaning more 180,000 hours’ worth of time dedicated to good causes in local communities.

Dominik Stingas Packzo of the EFL Trust commented: “Summer is well under way and we’re seeing huge potential in this year’s teenagers.

“Everyone is getting along so well, they’re getting stuck into the challenges we’ve set them and they’ve been telling us they can’t wait to start learning about how to create their own social action projects.”

“There are still spaces available for teenagers in Yorkshire and Humber to sign up. It’s a chance to escape, take on new challenges and make new friends with people they wouldn’t usually get the opportunity to meet.

“Parents give such amazing feedback in the change of confidence they see in their teens, it really is an opportunity not to be missed!”

An experience to change your life and prepare you for your future is only minutes away!

Say yes to an amazing summer you'll never forget. To find out more about NCS visit
