COMMUNITY: Thousands of young people will join a national youth programme through Sky Blues in the Community

29 October 2019

Thousands of young people will join a national youth programme through Sky Blues in the Community.

From 2020, Sky Blues in the Community will engage thousands of young people aged 16 and 17, delivering National Citizen Service (NCS). Over the last 10 years more than 500,000 young people have benefitted from taking part in NCS.

As part of the 3 or 4 week experience during their summer holidays they spend time away trying exciting new activities, learning new skills and making new friends before returning to their communities to develop social action projects. These projects are a way of raising awareness of local causes, fundraising for charity or carry out activities to improve local facilities.

The NCS experience will give young people a clearer idea of what they want from their future. They will take on fresh challenges, get a taste of independence and be given a platform to have their voices heard and deliver a social action project that will positively impact their local area.

Sky Blues in the Community is pleased to be part of the NCS Trust's new network. The network of NCS providers deliver this unforgettable programme to thousands of young people each year. Sky Blues in the Community will be providing the programme with Reed in Partnership in Coventry.

Chloe Groves, Football Development Manager (Facilities & Education) is excited to be a part of the new NCS network of partners who will deliver its flagship programme for young people over the next five years.

“I am delighted to be part of the NCS network and to be working with young people in Coventry over the next five years. NCS is a fantastic opportunity for young people. The experiences, confidence, friendships, independence and memories they come away with is priceless. NCS is very rewarding and enlightening for all young people and is really a fantastic programme”

Michael Lynas, Chief Executive of the NCS Trust, said: "I'm incredibly proud of everything that NCS has achieved in the last ten years. As it moves into the next phase of its life, I'm confident NCS can make a more significant difference for our young people and their communities than ever before."

The new NCS network has been developed to deliver better value and experience for young people, parents and guardians and schools.

We are already recruiting for the Summer 2020 programme in local schools!
