Graduates NCS

NCS Graduates

So far, more than 100 young people who completed the NCS programme have joined the NCS Graduate Board, which allows those involved to continue their NCS experience.

Due to the amount of young people interested in volunteering, an ambassador scheme was created to run alongside the local graduate board, so that everyone would get the opportunity to be involved in different projects.

On this programme, participants build skills for work and life, while taking on new challenges and adventures, making new friends and contributing to their community.

The NCS team aims to, over the next year, design and create social action projects that will have an impact and make a difference to the community of Doncaster. The graduates will have the opportunity to grow in confidence as they gain new skills such as: teamwork; independence; management and communication.

The local youth board is currently looking at different volunteering opportunities that graduates will be able to take part in. At the same time, they are creating an opportunities hub page, which will hopefully allow other NCS graduates to be part of all the social action projects.
