‘The Challenge’ is a nationwide organisation, running now for several years, which offers National Citizen Service training for young people. It’s an experience that is hugely rewarding for those who take part.

In 2016 their Youth and Community Development Programme will reach over 30 000 people.

On Thursday 17th December at 6pm they are holding a ‘Buzz’ event where if you feel you have leadership or management experience (or both!) that you could offer, they would like to meet you and talk through the opportunities to be part of the programme in 2016.

It’s being held at 52 Charlotte Street, Birmingham – and there are refreshments galore so if you’ve had a busy afternoon shopping in the city, you could pop along before returning home to Stratford District.


All the details are HERE – including how to book tickets.

Good luck if you can go along – if you can’t make it that evening, this is ‘The Challenge’ web site
