This Summer 2022, Leeds Rhinos Foundation will de delivering the National Citizen Service (NCS) programme to hundreds of young people from across Leeds looking for unforgettable experience whilst boosting their skills! 

The NCS experience gives participants the opportunity to develop the confidence and skills they need to become more engaged with their communities and become active and responsible citizens, whilst having an amazing, action-packed experience.

It’s a chance for young people to say ‘no, we can’ by immersing themselves in a number of outdoor team-building activities before moving on to planning and implementing their own social action project, working with local charities to create positive, lasting change whilst gaining experience of real life project planning.

Don’t forget, NCS isn’t just a wonderful, once-in-a-lifetime experience, it is also a recognised National Award that is signed by the Prime Minister which will boost your CV and make you stand out above the crowd!

A breakdown of our NCS Programme

For our Summer 2022 programme we are running three two-week programmes in Leeds throughout July and August which includes a week away on residential, and will be broken down into three stages:


Week 1 will give young people some unforgettable experiences as they head off an a five-day residential to take part in some incredible outdoor team-building activities, including kayaking, rock-climbing, orienteering, archery and much more! 

It is also an opportunity to develop new skills such as leadership, team building, presentation skills and the chance to plan their own social action project.


Now it’s time to put that planning into action! Week 2 will allow you to bring your ideas to life and carry out your very own social action and volunteering projects.

This is an incredible opportunity to give back and help the local community where it needs it the most, gaining some key employability skills and creating a positive, lasting impact. 


You’re going to achieve so much more than you could ever imagine. And we won’t leave you empty handed.

On top of all the pals, lols, and skills, you’ll get a certificate to remind you of your experience at a glittering presentation ceremony at Headingley Stadium, and then enjoy a huge party with your team! The perfect way to finish off a Summer like no other.
