NCS teams brave the Dragons Den

As part of the National Citizen Service (NCS) programme, young people in Sheffield work in teams to make a difference to their local area.

Groundwork South Yorkshire gives the young people complete freedom to create and deliver their own project, focussing on an issue they are passionate about.

During the summer delivery of NCS, each team has 30 hours to plan their project and 30 hours to deliver their project. This part of the programme usually spans over two weeks.

As part of their planning, the participants are required to present their ideas to Groundwork’s infamous Dragons’ Den panel.

Not only does this part of the programme encourage participants to hone their presentation and planning skills but it also gives the teams a chance to secure some all-important funding to make their project a success.

Dragons are made up of local social entrepreneurs and Groundwork South Yorkshire staff members. The Den is hosted in Sheffield city centre at Element Society.

Over the next few weeks, we will be continuing the ‘Social action spotlight’ series by showcasing a number of exceptional social action projects that have been delivered by NCS participants this summer.
