National Citizen Service (NCS) is an experience you really don't want to miss. If you're 15 to 17 years-old, this is your chance to embark on exhilarating challenges, make your mark and build skills for work and life. More than 300,000 young people have already said YES to NCS.

 

NCS takes place in your local community outside of term time, so no matter what your commitments are or what your summer holiday plans might be, just register and we'll get you on the next available NCS spot.

 

Once you've secured your spot, your local NCS provider will contact you to discuss things further and to answer any other questions you have about NCS or the programme.

 

Why not kick-start your future with a summer you'll never forget! The Government invests at least £1,500 for each young person to take part but thanks to government backing, the most you'll ever pay for this unbeatable experience is £50 (£40 New Year offer).
