Groundwork South Yorkshire celebrated the end of NCS Summer 2015 in style! The graduation event was held for over 200 participants and their friends and relatives.
The ceremony was hosted at the O2 Academy in Sheffield city centre, complete with unlimited photobooth, free drinks and a massive afterparty.
The event was hosted by Sophie Eyre, who coordinated two of the three waves this Summer. Sophie called up each of the 15 teams onto stage to talk about their social action project.
The graduation ceremony provides a great opportunity for graduates of the programme to reunite with the friends they have made during the Summer.
It's also Groundwork's opportunity to talk to the young people about how they can continue to be involved with us. Whether that is through continuing social action, volunteering on future programmes or joining the youth board.
Some of the most outstanding participants were awarded special prizes, including plenty of boxes of chocolate! All nominations were made by Groundwork's NCS delivery team for outstanding contributions.
The fantastic night ended with a huge hug! NCS Summer 2015, you have been amazing!
