National Citizen Service
Opportunities like NCS don’t come around often. You get to live away from home, make a difference in your local community and do some amazing things. Here are just some of the reasons why young people say yes to NCS:
– Do new exciting activities
– Develop leadership skills
– Meet amazing people
– Work with local businesses
– Boost your CV and UCAS application
– Follow your passion
– Give back to the community
Your NCS Journey?
Week 1 – Adventure
Living away from home, you’ll have five-day, four-night adventure with fun outdoor activities.
Week 2 – Discovery
A further five days, and four nights in a uni-style environment where you will develop life skills like confidence, commuinication and leadership.
Week 3 – Action
Then comes the social action element which is two weeks of doing good for your local community or a charity by showing just how much you’ve learnt and how awesome you really are! We always love these two weeks as our young people come up with some incredible plans to give back to the community we live-in!
A chance to reunite with your team to celebrate your achievements and share with everyone what you have achieved in the past few weeks.
How can I get involved with NCS?
The National Citizen Service programme runs twice a year, in the summer and autumn, giving young people aged 15-17 a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get involved, try new things and meet new people.
