More than 500 people across Exeter involved in NCS
More than 500 young people from across the greater Exeter area are taking part in City Community Trusts NCS programme this summer.
The programme consists of four phases, which include a week’s stay in the Brecon Beacons, social skills development which support the transition to adulthood and a social action project.
Danny Harris, deputy head of community at CITY Community Trust, who oversees the programme, said: "NCS aims to be a rite of passage for 16 and 17 year olds, supporting young people as they transition to adult life.
‘We aim to help them develop their life skills, strength of character, including sense of well-being, confidence, self-awareness and sense of social responsibility."
CITY Community Trust is Exeter City Football Club’s partner charity. It delivers programmes and activities relating to health and wellbeing across Devon.
