What is NCS?

"NCS is the country’s fastest-growing youth movement, a rite of passage for all
teenagers aged 15-17 to discover who they are and what they can do.
It’s your chance to explore, be inspired and find your passion. Nearly 500,000 young
people have already taken part – will you be next?

NCS is a four-phase programme specifically designed to provide you with all sorts of new experiences. Whether you’re a daredevil or creative genius, talkative or more reserved, you’ll be surprised by how much you’re actually capable of, coming away with a host of new skills and bags of confidence. If you want to boost your UCAS statement or CV, meet incredible people, get your voice heard and have a lot of fun while you’re at it, then NCS is for you. 

Your NCS experience will be run by one of our incredible, dedicated partner organisations in your area. They’ll know your region and use their local knowledge and unique expertise to support and inspire you on your journey. We also work collaboratively with charities, not-for-profits and private sector organisations to enrich the experience for everyone who takes part, as well as your wider community. Together, we really can create long-lasting change – starting with you."
