National Citizen Service is an awesome, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity available to all young people in Year 11 and 12. This innovative scheme builds skills and confidence, and helps you grow, change and connect with new people and your local community. From the first session all the way through to graduation, you will have the summer of a lifetime, meet lots of new people and have loads of fun - and don't forget that NCS runs in the autumn, as well - alongside your school, college or apprenticeship!

What actually happens?
After you book your place, you will be contacted by a member of the NCS team, who will tell you all the details. The experience itself varies, but will always include an initial meet and greet session, a residential, team-work and skills building, and planning a social action project to do something amazing in your local area.
