Reward your teenager with NCS
National Citizen Service (NCS) is a youth empowerment programme that gives 16 and 17-year-olds the chance to channel their independent spirit and take their next steps with confidence. NCS takes place over the school holidays in summer, autumn and spring.
Launched in 2011, to date over 200,000 teenagers have taken part in NCS and 3.3 million hours have been dedicated by NCS graduates to social action projects, helping to improve their local communities. On NCS, participants build skills for work and life, while taking on new challenges and adventures, building confidence and making friends for life.
Government backing means the most you will ever pay for NCS is £50 for the whole experience, including food, activities… everything!
