NCS takes place outside of term time in spring, summer and autumn – each one is a little different but equally amazing. There are plenty of dates to choose from so there’s nothing standing in between you and the awesomeness of NCS.

Our next programmes are kicking off this summer 2015 – express your interest or download an application form and information letter and secure your place today!

Phase 1, Adventure

In your first week you’ll live with your team at an outdoor activity centre, getting to know each other and experiencing the freedom of being away from home with new friends.

Phase 2, Future

Next up is being reunited with your group to live away from home whilst getting to know your local community.

Phase 3, Making a difference

Now you get the chance to put all the skills and experiences you’ve learnt into practice as a team agreeing on a social action project that will really make a mark on your local community.

Phase 4, Graduation

Once you’ve completed the programme, you’re now part of the bigger NCS family – our grads have the chance to attend some of the greatest shows and events going and we’ll be constantly developing amazing ways to keep you involved with us, your community & with all of our fantastic partners.
