06 Feb SATURDAY’S FIXTURE DEDICATED TO THE TOWN FOUNDATION’S NCS PROGRAMME!
This weekend’s Sky Bet Championship clash between Huddersfield Town and QPR aims to showcase the exciting opportunities available to local youngsters aged 15 – 17 through the Town Foundation’s NCS programme.
The Huddersfield Town Foundation are proud new providers of NCS as of 2019, piloting their first ever programme back in October.
NCS is a flagship government initiative running across England and Northern Ireland. It allows young people to take on new challenges, experience exciting activities and make long-lasting friendships.
The dedicated match day is part of a wider EFL Trust campaign, with EFL and Premier League clubs across the country working to highlight the positive impact that young people are making in their local communities through participation in the programme.
Huddersfield Town First Team Players will be showing their support for the Foundation’s programme by warming up in NCS t-shirts.
Alongside this, some of our prospective participants will also be volunteering at the Fans for Foodbank collection points around the ground.
The Foundation’s NCS Team have been busy engaging with partner schools across North Kirklees and spaces are filling up rapidly for the summer programme, with over 75% of places already filled.
Almost 500,000 young people have completed the NCS programme to date, giving up an incredible 12 million hours to social action projects since NCS started. The cost of the programme to prospective participants is just £50, with bursaries available via the participants school.
