Jack and Samavia are NCS Leaders!

Groundwork South Yorkshire NCS participants selected to represent young people at a national level.

Jack Marshall and Samavia Hussain (pictured centre) have both been selected to join the National Citizen Service (NCS) Leaders’ Programme.

The two friends were selected from over 80,000 applicants to become 2 out of 100 successful participants picked for the popular programme.

Jack and Samavia have been invited to attend a residential conference at the prestigious Sevenoaks School in Kent.

The successful duo, who both completed the NCS programme with Groundwork South Yorkshire in Sheffield this summer, will meet top business and community partners to develop more skills and to create new projects.

The NCS programme is a government-funded youth project for 16 and 17 year olds which takes place throughout the country in school holidays. Each year, 100 of the most promising graduates are selected to continue their NCS journey on the Leaders’ Programme.

Jack spoke to us about his experience: “To get selected, I had to make a 30 second video on my favourite NCS moment.

When I got chosen, I was delighted! I felt honoured about being the first disabled person to go on the NCS Leaders course. I am really representing disabled people and being given the opportunity to prove that a disabled person should get the same chance as anyone else and can be successful.

Young people know what they want! We are the future and programmes such as this teach us how to use that voice effectively.”
