Joy as Norfolk youngsters graduate from citizen course

10:11 24 May 2014

This week over nearly 70 young people from around the county graduated from the National Citizen Service course, which was also attended by Borough Mayor Mayor Barry Ayres and members of the Norfolk Constabulary. 
The NCS locally is organised under the umbrella of the uniformed services department of the College of West Anglia, although students came from many different towns, as far away as Thetford.
The 16 and 17 year olds completed the Easter course during April, which helps young people improve team skills, develop self-confidence, and learn about their community before completing volunteering projects they planned and organised themselves. 
Their time at Easter saw the students complete residential breaks at Mepal outdoor centre and at Bircham Newton and then the final day at College of West Anglia. They completed various projects including charity fundraising, cake sales, and bag packing.

The NCS course is run by the uniformed services department of the College of West Anglia.

It helps 16 and 17 year olds to improve their team skills, develop self-confidence, and learn about their community before completing 
volunteering projects they planned and organised themselves.

This year’s intake completed residential breaks at Mepal outdoor centre and Bircham Newton and completed projects including charity fundraising, cake sales, and bag packing.

The College of West Anglia will be delivering a further course during the summer holiday, for which more than 100 people have already signed up.
