National Citizen Service – For the lessons they don’t teach you in class:-

  • Leadership, teamwork, independence, community action.
  • Fast forward your future.
  • New confidence, new horizons, new connections.
  • One small step, one giant leap.
  • Inclusive, national, celebrating success, source of pride and confidence.
