Fifty young people graduated from the National Citizen Service, at the end of a course delivered for the first time by the College of West Anglia.
The youngsters, aged between 16 and 17, graduated at a ceremony at King’s Lynn Town Hall, attended by college principal David Pomfret with the mayor of West Norfolk, Elizabeth Watson, who is supporting the course, as guest speaker.
The NCS course helps young people improve team skills, develop self-confidence, and learn about their community, as well as improving their CV for employment and education. It looks to engage them in the local community.
The graduation ceremony marked the end of the college’s first year of delivering the course but there are more opportunities to take part with the college delivering a course during Easter half term in April, and during the summer holidays.
If you are aged between 16 or 17 years old and would like to find out more, or 18 and over and would like to volunteer, go to www.cwa.ac.uk/ncs or contact Stuart Harrowing on 07780097634.
