NCS | Get Involved!


Hello everyone! Today I'm bringing you a slightly different post that's not necessarily beauty or fashion related, but I hope you'll all enjoy it nevertheless! 

A few weeks ago, the lovely people from NCS got in contact with me, and today this post is going to tackle what NCS do and (hopefully) get you all involved!

Now, somewhere along the line I'm sure you've heard of NCS - which stands for National Citizen Service - either on other blogs like my own, or mentioned in YouTube videos across the interwebs (Zoella's 'Just Say Yes' video comes to mind!)
It's a really cool experience that's open to all 16-17 year olds across England, and is a once in a lifetime, three week programme that gives you the chance to meet new people, get involved in the community and graduate at the end of it all with a certificate signed by the Prime Minister which to be honest, I think is pretty cool. 

Their spotlight bus tour ran all the way from Devon up to Newcastle, and brought along some familiar YouTube faces that I'm SURE you'll all recognize *cough*Patricia, Zoe, Alfie, Jim*cough*. 

The road trip set out to shine a spotlight on local young talent who had been nominated by their community, who felt they deserved recognition, aww! On the way it looked like they met some pretty amazing people, from upcoming rappers, to pianists, to boxers! This is the Nottingham leg of the bus tour, where NCS meet two very talented young musicians: 


And finally - even if none of this tickles your fancy, here's a video for all you Zoella/Jim Chapman fans out there, where they meet a talented young boxer as part of the tour!


So what are you waiting for?! It's not too late to sign up for NCS, so get out there, make a difference, get involved. Visit www.ncsyes.co.uk for more information and to sign up, and who knows, you might just end up meeting some of your favourite YouTubers along the way! 
Thankyou all for reading, let me know if you're a part of an NCS programme already, or if this post has inspired you to get out there and enjoy the experience!

(Boring disclaimer bit *yawn*: Even though NCS got in contact with me, the views I express in this post are solely my own, and to be honest, if I wasn't going to be 18 in literally a few days, I'd 100% be signing up!)
