NCS - Yes! Sign up your teen for a life changing Summer experience

Thursday, 12 April 2018
Our eldest daughter completed a summer National Citizen Service course about 2 years ago, it was truly life changing and she came back much more confident and capable.  It was the best £50 we have ever spent.  She formed lasting friendships, gained life skills, and completed challenges she never would've dreamed of taking on.  I would recommend the programme without hesitation, it is brilliant! 

National Citizen Service is a government backed programme established in 2011 to help build a more cohesive, mobile and engaged society.  It brings together young people from different backgrounds for a unique shared experience which helps them to become better individuals, and in turn better citizens. 

NCS is open to 16 and 17 year-olds across England and Northern Ireland. The two to four week programme, which takes place in school holidays, includes outdoor team-building exercises, a residential for participants to learn ‘life skills’, a community-based social action project, and an end of programme celebration event.

It's a fab initiative which puts young people through a series of challenging activities to take them out of their comfort zones and develop their strength of character, whilst helping them become part of a team.

Young people develop more responsibility as the programme progresses and develop leadership skills necessary to succeed in further education and the workplace. There's a social action project which enables young people to connect with, and help out, their communities.

NCS is amazing value for money. The whole experience including food, accommodation and travel costs just £50 and bursaries are available on a case by case basis. Support is also provided for young people with additional needs.

No matter what your plans are for summer, there are programmes to suit.  Register for more information to find out how NCS can fit in with your summer plans.  There are still places available for Year 11s to take part in this once in a lifetime opportunity this summer. To sign up now, go to the NCS website.

You can also check out the NCS social media channels on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram.
