National Citizen Service (NCS)
The National Citizen Service is a youth programme for 16 and 17 year olds launched nationwide in 2013. Participants experience residential activities away from home and team-based skill building sessions, before developing their own Social Action Project (SAP) designed to benefit their local communities. NCS aims to create a more cohesive, engaged and responsible society.
Taking part will result in young people:
National Citizen Service will take place during the summer at the end of Year 11 and 12. It will run for four weeks full-time, including two weeks away from home. After that, participants complete 2 weeks of Social Action in their community.
Working in a team, young people will have the chance to take part in exciting outdoor activities like coasteering, canoeing and abseiling.
Participants also get the opportunity to design and deliver their own project in their local community. This could mean working with other young people to improve the area where they live, benefiting everyone who lives there.
