What is NCS?

The national citizen service (NCS) is a flagship government programme for young people aged between 15-17. Offering something for everyone, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to find your identity, take control of your life and channel your energy into making a real difference to your local community.

Be Epic
Phase One is all about challenges. This week will be spent meeting some amazing new young people and living as a team away from home at an outdoor activity centre. You will work in groups of 12-15 in an adrenaline fuelled week of challenges and activities, e.g. canoeing/kayaking, gorge walking/ghyll scrambling, rock climbing and hiking. This is your chance to discover new things, make new friends and enjoy the freedom of being away from home.

Live Life
Phase Two sees you meet up with your team in a university style accommodation and living away from home. You will improve your life skills such as communication, leadership and self-confidence and develop your life skills, which all looks great on your UCAS statement and CV. You will have the opportunity to meet with organisations and important members from your local community and create links for future projects or even ideas for your own business/charity.

Do Good
This is where you can make a difference! All of the skills and experience you have gained and developed over the past two weeks all come together and you will have the opportunity to create your very own social action project. You will plan, fund-raise and have the power to make a real change to your local community by delivering your project.

Go Party!
It’s time to recognise and celebrate! Young people have the opportunity to celebrate their achievements and the achievements of their team in style. You will celebrate with your team during a graduation event where family and friends can come along to see the hard work and effort and hear the fun stories you all have to tell.

NCS doesn’t stop there
Once you have completed your four week programme you will become a part of a wide network of young people who have a range of opportunities both locally and nationally for graduates once their programme has finished. You can continue with social action projects or choose to help shape future participants programmes, the possibilities for volunteering and involvement are endless.

MFC Foundation is a registered charity that uses the power of football to make a positive difference in Teesside communities.

MFC Foundation works across the Tees Valley providing activities for young people and adults in sport, education and health.

We support some of the most disadvantaged and marginalised people within Teesside communities using the power of the Middlesbrough Football Club brand to engage with beneficiaries and supporters and to ensure we engage the hardest to reach.

We use sport as a catalyst to engage service users, donors, businesses and supporters in order to provide meaningful services that have a lasting impact upon communities and the lives of people in Teesside

In order for us to continue to provide these life changing projects we require donations from the public and corporate supporters.
