Today, Bradford City will join other football clubs across the country to celebrate the impact young people have had in Bradford - when participating in the National Citizen Service.
Each year, Bradford City promotes NCS and the impact it has had on young people from Bradford, through a campaign called #NCSMatchDay.
Given ongoing COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, this has proved impossible in its normal format this season, however #NCSMatchDay will still be served digitally.
Designed for 16-17-year-olds, NCS is an inclusive summer programme which helps young people get the skills, experience and self-belief they need to achieve their potential - and smash their future goals.
NCS aims to make a life-changing difference to young people and how they approach life after school.
In just a few weeks, they will mix with new people from different backgrounds, conquer big challenges, pick up some invaluable life skills and get the confidence they need to live independently.
They will even take part in a social action project to ‘do good’ in their local community. It really is the perfect stepping stone into adult life - just ask the 600,000 young people who have taken part.
Bradford City FC Community Foundation has had thousands of young people take part over the eight years the foundation has delivered NCS in Bradford and Calderdale.
In 2020, the EFL Trust and its network of delivery partners have engaged over 15,000 young people through NCS, giving them an opportunity to make up for lost time by building skills and resilience whilst also being a driving force for change in their community.
Bradford City AFC Community Foundation has limited spaces to take part in NCS this summer, so make sure you do not miss this opportunity.
