NCS is a youth programme designed specially for 16 and 17 year olds. The experience might last just a few weeks, but the impact? That lasts a LOT longer. Every year, NCS run summer and autumn experiences in the school holidays, all over England and Northern Ireland. On NCS, teens mix with people from different backgrounds, pick up skills to set them up for life and have the opportunity to speak up and make a difference in their community. They’re all about supporting young people so they can smash their future goals.
So far, nearly half a million young people have taken part in NCS. For almost a decade, they’ve been working with local businesses, youth centres, football clubs and grassroots initiatives. Together, they’re aiming to make the world a fairer, kinder, more compassionate place.
