NCS - A youth programme like no other

Designed especially for 16 and 17 year olds, the NCS experience will give you a clearer idea of what you want from your future.

On NCS, you'll mix with a new crowd, and take on fresh challenges together. Before you know it, you'll be rooting for each other, as you all tackle your own little hurdles. Along the way, you'll also get a taste for independence and pick up skills that'll help you smash your future goals. And if that's not enough for you, you'll also be given a platform to have your voice heard and pursue a passion project. The NCS experience might last just a few weeks, but the impact? That lasts a LOT longer. Over 500,000 people have already done NCS – want to join them?

Want to make this summer one you'll never forget? Register for NCS today and get ready to meet a bunch of new mates, learn life lessons, skills and hacks, get your voice out there, and push yourself to new the best way possible!
