The Graduate Programme
The NCS graduate programme is an opportunity for youngsters to get further experience after NCS. We hold monthly meetings to discuss future community activities & further explore the NCS principles & ethos. There is a focus on the graduate programme being youth led. This means the young people have more responsibility, more power and ultimately more impact in the work we do. Past projects have including; documenting information off headstones at Almondbury church & throwing a charity reunion party.
Much of the NCS grad programme is about helping us NCS staff prepare for summer delivery. Grads have helped us out at staff selection days, keep warm events, training exercises, assemblies, everything really. Completing the graduate programme can lead to amazing things too, for the summer 2016 programme we will be taking around 20 graduate volunteers on the home residential, and we’re even taking 4 ex grads as full paid members of staff! Bonkers!
