Flying Futures are currently recruiting Programme Leads, Lead Mentors and Mentors to support the delivery of the National Citizen Service (NCS) programme across North Yorkshire, East Riding and Stockton-on-Tees.
We are looking for driven, passionate and reliable individuals to coach, motivate, lead and support a group of 15/16 young people through their NCS experience. The roles will require you to be a positive role model whilst stretching opportunity for learning and offering pastoral care through the 3/4 weeks of their experience. The programme is part residential and part non-residential delivered in the local area.
What does the programme look like?
Phase 1: Adventure – Outward bound residential week (4 nights, 5 days) based at one of our sites in the UK or France. Opportunity for participants to be pushed out of their comfort zones, challenged to take part in out of the ordinary adventure activities.
Phase 2: Skills – Based residentially at the University of York (4 nights, 5 days), participants stay in student accommodation and take part in interactive workshops to build confidence, skills and add to their CV!
Phase 3: Social action – Participants return home and meet daily to plan, design and deliver a social action project in their local area. Dependent on area, this is over 5 or 10 days.
