Once again this year I have had the opportunity to spend time with some of the young people (15-17) taking part in the National Citizen Service (NCS) summer programme here in Reading.
The work it was my privilege to be introduced to was characterised by a level of creativity, intelligence, thoughtfulness and enthusiasm that was truly inspiring.
To give you just a taste of this I would like to share the video below produced by Jacob Lindsay, a NCS participant, highlighting the work he and his Team Reiss colleagues did with their community partners Rosebuddies.
Inspired? Don’t forget that the RVA Youth team are here all year round to help your organisation harness the skills, talents and enthusiasm young people can bring. See www.rvayouth.org.uk to find out more.
