Today, Coventry City will join Football Clubs across the country to celebrate the impact that young people have had in Coventry thanks to NCS (National Citizen Service).
Each year, Coventry City promotes NCS and the impact it has had on young people from Coventry through a campaign called #NCSMatchDay. Given the challenging times this hasn’t been able to happen in its normal format this year however this won’t stop #NCSMatchDay going digital!
Designed for 16-17-year-olds, NCS is an inclusive summer programme that helps young people get the skills, experience and self-belief they need to achieve their potential - and smash their future goals. NCS aims to make a life-changing difference to young people and how they approach life after school.
In just a few weeks, they’ll mix with new people from different backgrounds, conquer big challenges, pick up some invaluable life skills and get the confidence they need to live independently. They will even take part in a social action project to ‘do good’ in their local community. It’s the perfect stepping stone into adult life – just ask the 600,000 young people who’ve already experienced NCS.
Sky Blues in the Community has had 112 young people take part in NCS.
In 2020, the EFL Trust and its network of Delivery Partners have engaged over 15,000 young people through NCS, giving them an opportunity to make up for lost time by building skills and resilience whilst also being a driving force for change in their community.
In Coventry places on NCS this summer are now limited. To find out more information and sign up visit wearencs.com.
