This year you have been a superstar during the pandemic and we're giving you the chance to 'keep doing good'
Keep Doing Good is an alternative NCS programme for the summer of 2020 giving you the opportunity to get involved with fundraising, volunteering and helping the community. If you’re aged 16-17 years, come and make a difference to your community and learn new skills this summer.
Join other young people on the Keep Doing Good programme by getting together in cohorts (usually groups of 10-13), and on week 1 you’ll learn new skills including sessions on First Aid, Confident Communication and MoneySense. You’ll also learn about your community, what Social Action is, and about the charity partner you will be volunteering with and fundraising for in week 2. This is all in preparation for for week 2 which involves socially-distanced fundraising and volunteering (1 day fundraising and 30 hours volunteering).
This programme is a socially-distanced programme so all young people and staff must be at least one metre apart from each other. We are providing masks to all young people, and antibacterial gel, as well as visors to our staff members. We will also be ensuring a cleaning schedule is in place, and strict COVID guidelines will be given to young people and parents/guardians prior to the programme starting.
While you can go along with friends, you will also have the chance to make new friends and meet people from different backgrounds. This summer Action4Youth is offering Keep Doing Good to 111 young people from across Buckinghamshire. The places will be spread across four waves.
|Wave 1: Aylesbury (YouthSpace, The Grange School)||Monday 27th July – Thursday 6th August (excluding Friday and weekends)|
|Wave 2: High Wycombe (YouthSpace, Green Street)||Monday 3rd August – Thursday 13th August (excluding Friday and weekends)|
|Wave 3: Aylesbury (YouthSpace, The Grange School)||Monday 17th August – Thursday 27th August (excluding Friday and weekends)|
|Wave 4: High Wycombe (YouthSpace, Green Street)||Monday 17th August – Thursday 27th August (excluding Friday and weekends)|
Each wave will run for two consecutive weeks (Monday-Thursday) from the start date, excluding Fridays and weekends. Each team (between 10-13 young people) will have two Team Leaders.
This programme is FREE, lunch is provided and you can still complete NCS in either Autumn 2020 or Summer 2021 (if you haven’t completed it before). If you have already completed NCS (graduates) you’re also able to sign up to this programme!
