WHAT IS NCS?
Designed for 16-17 year olds, NCS is a youth programme that runs every summer and autumn, during school holidays.
The experience is all about emboldening young people, by giving them the buzz of being an adult (without all the responsibilities). On NCS, participants live away from home and get a taste of independence. They mix with a new crowd of people and take on exciting challenges together. The experience helps young people to develop new skills that will set them up for life after school.
Participants then get a chance to use these new-found skills, by tackling a ‘passion project’ of their choosing. NCS is dedicated to providing a platform for young people where they can speak up, get their voice heard and tackle real-world issues close to home.
The experience might just last a few weeks, but the impact? That lasts a lot longer. Since day one, in 2011, nearly 500,000 young people have taken part in NCS, completing over 14.5 million hours of community action, and gaining priceless life experiences.
