Leeds Rhinos Foundation launch FREE Autumn 2021 NCS Programme

Leeds Rhinos Foundation are delighted to officially launch their 2021 Autumn NCS programme, which will give young people aged 16 and 17 across Leeds the chance to enjoy some unforgettable experiences this October!

Autumn NCS is a 10 day programme, starting over the half term week starting on the Monday when you break up – through to the following Saturday and then two proceeding weekends of social action.

It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet new friends, gain skills to boost you UCAS applications, enjoy incredible adventures, create positive change in the community, take part in sick outdoor activities and much more- but the best part is that this year, it’s COMPLETELY FREE!

That’s right, the entire NCS experience for FREE! Sounds good right?

The NCS team at Leeds Rhinos Foundation will be visiting schools across the city- starting this week- to advertise the programme to Year 12 students who are eligible to attend. Spaces will be capped, and with demand for this FREE programme set to be sky high it’s imperative to act fast, as they will be filled on a first come, first served basis until they are all gone.

Still not convinced? Here’s 6 key reasons to join our Autumn NCS programme this year:

1) It gives you an amazing volunteering experience to write about on your job and university applications to make you stand out from the crowd

2) It’s a total of 10 days, to fit perfectly around your other commitments and it doesn’t clash with school/college time.

3) It’s a great opportunity for you to meet new people and there will be dozens of young people just like you on the Autumn programme, that’s lots of potential new friends and contacts to keep.

4) Gain new skills at the masterclasses, including CV writing, using social media to your advantage, presentation skills and much more!

5) At the end of your Autumn NCS experience you will get a certificate signed by the Prime Minister at a graduation ceremony.

6) It’s so much fun and taking part in NCS will boost your confidence, skills and independence, giving you a half term you’ll remember forever.
