“No child or young person in poverty of any kind in Plymouth” – that isn’t a pipe dream but a firm goal and PCiP is determined to make it a reality. Partnerships and collaboration with others are crucial in this effort and NCS is one such partner – they set out their goal:-
“What is NCS?”
Designed especially for 16- and 17-year-olds, the NCS experience will give you a clearer idea of what you want from your future turning all those ‘No You Cant’s into ‘Yes We Can’
We exist to engage, unite and empower young people, building your confidence so you can go out there and achieve your dreams, no matter where you’re from or what your background is.
You’ll spend a few weeks in the summer or autumn mixing with a new crowd and taking on fresh challenges together. Before you know it, you’ll be rooting for each other, as you all tackle your own little hurdles.
Along the way, you’ll also get a taste for independence and pick up skills that’ll help you smash your future goals. And if that’s not enough for you, you’ll also be given a platform to get your voice heard and pursue a passion project to create a positive, lasting impact in your local community.”
That is in perfect harmony with everything that PCiP aspires to do with and for young people in Plymouth.
Our grants have ensured that Plymouth Schools are joining us to help youngsters in most need of the NCS experience have the chance to go on the 2021 Programme.
This can be life-changing, and our hope is that it will be.
Whoever you are, whatever you do there is room for YOU to join us in this effort. Don’t wait – JOIN US TODAY!
