National Citizen Service
This scheme is a fun, challenging, personal and social development programme which will help young people aged 16 and 17 (school years 11 and 12) to become more confident by taking part in socially responsible activities.
By taking part in the programme they can expect to face new challenges, develop qualities valued by employers - and make lifelong friends along the way.
The National Citizen Service programme for young people has been designed to improve young people's decision-making and relationship-building skills as well as their self esteem.

Projects in other districts of Hertfordshire will be offering a 2013 summer programme to include "Make a Difference this summer" where young people can achieve a City and Guilds Level 1 Award in Employability and Personal Development and participate in a fund-raising Community Action Project. Details will soon be available, but in the meantime please contact Debra Parsall for information:

Of those who took part, 121 gained a level 1 City and Guilds Award and one achieved an entry level 3.
