The next award was for two young people who completed the National Citizens Award.
The National Citizens Service (NCS) helps young people to build skills for work and life, giving them the opportunity to take on new challenges and meet new friends. NCS brings young people together from different backgrounds and helps them develop greater confidence, self-awareness and responsibility. It encourages personal and social development by working on skills like leadership, teamwork and communication. Participants develop a social action project to deal with a local issue they are passionate about, and spend 30 hours putting the project into action in their community.
These two girls had a short time away from home and took part in a team project that raised awareness of the importance of youth work. A massive well done to both of them for completing the programme.
