The Leicester Tigers Foundation are giving teenagers the chance to learn new skills, take on exciting challenges and create unforgettable memories on the National Citizen Service.If you are aged 16 and 17 you can make the most of this summer by developing leadership skills with the Tigers Foundation NCS programmes.   Tigers are running three summer NCS programmes over four weeks. The first programme begins on Monday, July 6, the second on Monday, July 20 and the final programme starts on Monday, August 3.   Already, more than 100 young people have booked on to the programme but places are still available. Book your place now by clicking here.   Each programme starts with a residential week of outdoor adventure activities. The second week includes a stay in university halls of residence and the chance to learn business, financial and employment skills. They will hear from guest speakers and take part in a series of challenges.   The third and fourth weeks of the National Citizen Service programme sees the young people plan and deliver a social action project giving back to the local community. Previous groups have put together a fund raising drive for the Matt Hampson Foundation, and redecorated a community centre.   Sohail Khalifa took part on the Tigers National Citizen Service in February. He said: “It was brilliant. I loved meeting new people and trying different activities. I’d definitely tell any 16 and 17 year olds to take part in the programme, it’s a fantastic experience.”   James Cameron, another young person to take part in the programme, added: “I loved it. The PGL weekend was great fun, and I was able to try loads of new things that I wasn’t able to do before. I loved learning new skills and being able to give something back to the community.”   The Leicester Tigers Foundation’s National Citizen Service costs £35 per person.
