This involvement will include;
Week 1; in the Lake District taking on adventure challenges and developing leadership skills with expert instructors from the Outward Bound Trust
Week 2; living with your team-mates close to your own community, getting a taste of what adult life is really like and learning about issues in your area.
Week 3; living back at home but working during the day with your team-mates to plan a social action project – something that will benefit your local community such as an environmental project, charity event or a service for local people.

National Citizen Service is starting this year for the first time. This summer it will be available in just a few places in England, and Cumbria is one of them.
In the future, National Citizen Service is planned to be offered to all 16 year olds as they finish Year 11. You could be one of the first young people in the country to experience National Citizen Service.
There are a limited number of place still available on the scheme, if you are interested please call into the Connexions Office at 237-241 Dalton Road, Barrow in Furness or contact Connexions on 0800 435 709
