Now in its third year, NCS is a unique journey of personal discovery, through participation in a range of activities, that builds essential life confidence for 16 and 17 year olds and also benefits local communities. Taking part in NCS is also a sought after addition to any CV.
NCS 2013 is now open to more 16 and 17 year olds than ever before with thousands of spaces available this year and up to 90,000 opportunities to get involved in 2014.
The programme takes place over three weeks, plus 30 hours of social action, during the school holidays, including action-packed residential time away from home where participants are able to bond with teammates over activities such as hiking, canoeing and climbing. Participants are then shown ways of developing their personal and social skills and how to make a difference in their lives and the lives of others through social action projects. The NCS programme helps develop confidence, self-awareness and responsibility and almost nine out of ten (89%) people who have been involved in the NCS programme, have said that they have gained useful skills for work, study or training to help bolster their CV.
It All Starts At Yes – Say Yes to NCS and make a life changing decision now.
