Want to do something amazing with your summer?
Think long sunny days (probably some wet ones too, who are we kidding), hanging with new mates, having a week of adventures staying away from home that you’ll talk about for years, a week of doing some good in your community, and becoming the best version of yourself. What more could you want?
Spaces on the NCS Summer ‘22 experience are now open!
NCS (National Citizen Service) is a unique opportunity for young people to build skills for work and life while taking on new challenges and making new friends.
“We’re here to help you say ‘No We Can’ so you can smash all the big moments that lie ahead – from your last days of school to your first days on the job – giving you what you need to become world ready and work-ready.”
A youth programme designed for 16-17-year-olds run 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 for independence. They mix with a new crowd of people and take on exciting challenges together. The experience helps young people develop skills that will set
them up for life after school.
Participants then get a chance to use these newfound 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 last just a few weeks, but the impact? That lasts a lot longer. Since day one, in 2011, nearly 700,000 young people have taken part in NCS, completing over 14.5 million hours of community action and gaining priceless life experiences.
