Nottingham Forest are delighted to support the National Citizen Service (NCS) at today’s match against Sheffield Wednesday.
Players will be showing their support for #NCSMatchday by wearing t-shirts during the warm-up ahead of the game at The City Ground in a special event organised by Nottingham Forest in the Community.
NCS is a programme available to all 16 and 17-year-olds across the country. It provides an opportunity to build new skills, making post-GCSE life more accessible. During 2016 nearly 500 young people took part in the Nottingham Forest in the Community NCS programme
NCS graduates will be at the game as guests of the club. Jamie, 17 from Beeston, said: “I met new people, got to try new things, and I did all of it. I had high expectations, and NCS met them all.”
Since being part of NCS, Jake, who is 18 from Radcliffe, has had the opportunity to travel to Ghana, complete journalistic work experience, attend a national award ceremony and interviewed Nottingham Forest’s NCS Ambassador Michael Mancienne this week.
Emily Moore, NCS Project Manager at Nottingham Forest in the Community, said: “The difference we have seen NCS make to the lives of our graduates as well as the wider community is something we are extremely proud of. NCS provides a safe environment to explore new opportunities whilst developing life and employability skills, making new friends and having the summer of a lifetime.”
