NCS - National Citizenship Service (https://wearencs.com/) have re-jigged their Summer NCS programme this year.
NCS Trust have added a ‘Staying Connected’ section to the website: wearencs.com/staying-connected which has been created especially for Summer 2020.
There is a wealth of information and activities loosely based around the NCS curriculum covering topics like political engagement, public speaking, CV writing, ideas on how to support communities through the pandemic, self-care and plenty of fun stuff too with quizzes, ‘cook-alongs’ and a good news round up.
‘Keep Doing Good – One Million Hours of Doing Good’
Current Year 11s also have had the opportunity to ‘Keep Doing Good’ with us this Summer, as part of our hope to pledge one million hours of doing good over July and August.
This will entail young people pledging some of their time over July and August to help the local community get back on its feet. This might mean helping out in a charity shop on a Saturday afternoon, or planning and delivering a social action project that will bring about a positive change or impact in the local area.
Of course, the safety and wellbeing of young people and staff has been top priority in planning, and all Keep Doing Good programmes have been planned and will be delivered in line with government guidelines. For more information, please visit: wearencs.com/keep-doing-good.
There is no cost to take part in Keep Doing Good this Summer, and we’re asking young people to pledge just 16 hours of their time – but, of course they can volunteer more than this!
Any of our students who had already signed up to take part in NCS in 2020 will be contacted by NCS about Keep Doing Good.
All other Y11 students are able to register their interest and sign up for Keep Doing Good via our website: wearencs.com/sign-up-to-ncs. Volunteering opportunities will begin from 27th July onwards
