The NCS runs in the spring, summer and autumn. Young people will have a short time away from home and take part in a team project that will help your community.
NCS brings together young people from different backgrounds throughout England and helps them develop greater confidence, self-awareness and responsibility. It encourages personal and social development by working on skills like leadership, teamwork and communication.
Participants develop a social action project to deal with a local issue they’re passionate about, and spend 30 hours putting the project into action in their community.
