NCS

National Citizen Service - the Government's flagship adventure and skills scheme for young people. read more

NCS is a youth project for 16 or 17 year-olds in the East of England and the South West. During half-terms or summer holidays you can go on an action-packed and skill-building week away from home and then use your new skills on a special project in your local community.

During the activity week you'll be abseiling, hiking, taking on assault courses and rafting by day and sleeping in tents or dorms at night. You'll be making lots of friends, learning how to work in a team, developing leadership skills and pushing yourself to achieve goals.

Next you'll start learning about local organisations and increasing your independence by doing problem-solving and team-building exercises.

Finally, your team will come together to do something beneficial for your local community. Not only will you decide on what you want to do - it could be sprucing up a local park or putting on an event at a retirement home - but you'll also plan your project from scratch, raise all the money for it, promote it and go out and complete it. You'll feel really good helping out people who need it.

So if you, or someone you know, is eligible for NCS why not get in touch?
