She wants to help teens with "life skills"
It's always lovely when celebrities use their fame to support important causes and charities. We saw The Saturday's Frankie Sandford become ambassador of mental health charity Mind last week, and now it seems a few more celebs have taken a leaf out of her book. Last night, Tulisa Contostavlos did her bit by helping to launch the National Citizen Service (NCS) 2013. Good going, girl.
Along with Made in Chelsea's Francis Boulle and olympic medalist Gemma Gibbons (who helped out in Manchester), the singer and X Factor judge sported an 'I create my own future' t shirt and bopped over to London's KOKO club to inspire teenagers to sign up for the programme.
NCS is aimed at 16 to 17 year olds who are looking for help with life skills, confidence and a boost on their CV's. It also provides 30 hours of social action, where teens get the opportunity to participate in outdoor activities such as canoeing and climbing. Not for the faint hearted!
Tulisa said “It’s great to be part of the 2013 launch of NCS. Saying yes to NCS is great way for 16 and 17 year olds to create their own future and build their confidence. I don’t think anyone should ever underestimate what young people can achieve – and NCS is a brilliant way to get a life-changing journey started.”
What do you think of Tulisa helping NCS out? Are you going to participate? Comments please!
