A celebration of the National Citizen Service in the community
Grimsby Town Football Club celebrates young people’s contribution to the area of North East Lincolnshire thanks to NCS.
This Saturday, Grimsby Town Football Club is championing the impact that young people in Grimsby, Cleethorpes and the surrounding areas have made thanks to NCS (National Citizen Service).
During the fixture against Woking, the club is highlighting the positive impacts young people have made on the community. For the fixture, previous participants of NCS have been invited as special guests to the game, whilst players will be warming up in NCS t-shirts, and have also allocated 400 tickets to those who have signed up.
Each year, Grimsby Town Football Club promotes NCS and the impact it has had on young people called #NCSMatchday. Designed for 16-17-year-olds, NCS offers 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 couple of months, 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 and ‘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.
