Saints hoping to inspire young adults through popular NCS programme

If you are 15 to 17 years old and looking to unlock your potential, Northampton Saints are teaming up with Premiership Rugby to help YOU this October half-term.

Saints’ community department will be delivering a National Citizens Service scaled programme during half-term week in Northamptonshire (26th October to 3rd November).

The programme will include a four day (three nights) residential activity break in Lincolnshire, where participants will develop important skills such as social mixing, teamwork, and problem solving by engaging in adventure activities.

“NCS can boost a person’s UCAS statement or CV, they will meet incredible people and get their voice heard.”

That is followed by a further three days of delivery back at Franklin’s Gardens, enhancing the skills obtained during the residential break for participants to be able to create social action plans to help support their local community.

“NCS is a hugely popular four-phase programme specifically designed to provide participants with all sorts of new experiences,” said Northampton Saints’ inclusion officer, Jamie Higgins.

“It is a great way for young people to become involved in their local community through the social action plan, but at the same time participants will be boosting their CV or UCAS application as this is a nationally-recognised programme.

“Whether they are a daredevil or creative genius, talkative or more reserved, they will be surprised by how much they are actually capable of, coming away with a host of new skills and bags of confidence.

“They will meet incredible people and get their voice heard, and hopefully have a lot of fun doing it with the support of Northampton Saints.”

NCS is a life-changing programme open to all teenagers aged 15-17 to discover who they are and what they can do.

Here to help young people with huge potential on their journey, NCS helps show participants they have what it takes to succeed, embrace new experiences and make their mark on the world.
