NCS offers young people aged between 15 – 17yrs* the opportunity to build new skills, take on new challenges and meet new people.
NCS takes place outside of term time in summer and autumn – each one is a little different but equally amazing. There are plenty of dates and the experience runs nationally so there’s nothing standing between you and the awesomeness of NCS. We run NCS across North Yorkshire, East Riding and Stockton-on-Tees. Below is an overview of the programme but for more information about our specific opportunities and to get signed up contact our dedicated team on 01937 222189 or visit the NCS website to sign up and feel unstoppable!
Phase 1 – Adventure, Let Loose
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. Once you’ve decided on the experience for you, we’ll place you in a group of 12-15 amazing people and the best thing about NCS is that these will be people you’d never have met before – people that could change your life, or you could change theirs. In this week you’ll get the chance to take part in adrenaline-fuelled activities with your team mates.
Phase 2 – Discovery, Sharpen Your Skills
Next up is being reunited with your group. In the summer programme to live away from home for five days in university style accommodation, or a fun filled three day home stay in our autumn programme. Regardless of which date you choose this phase of the programme is set to line you up with life skills for the future. You’ll learn some huge life skills that make for a killer CV. You could find yourself meeting organisations and important people from your local community, whilst learning about the issues facing them, as well as developing new personal skills (teamwork, leadership and communication). You could also find out more about skills you have a passion for, such as photography, editing, football coaching or even how to set up your own business!
Phase 3 – Social Action, Be the Change
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. We believe that you and your team have the power to change the world around you given the respect, tools and opportunities to do so. This is your chance to be part of something amazing – plan your own project, fundraise for it and make it happen! Go out there and be awesome together.
Not to mention at the end of the programme we’ll throw you a big party to celebrate everything you’ve achieved too. Not only will you be a completely different person, but also you’ll have made a huge network of amazing friends for life and done something truly inspirational in your community. Once you’ve completed the programme, you’re now part of the bigger NCS family with over 400,000 of young people already having graduated from the experience. 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.
NCS is a government initiative and costs around £1500 per young person that takes part. But NCS is for everyone and as a result you will NEVER pay more than £50 for the experience. That is everything…accommodation, food, activities all included. So to get yourself signed up visit NCSYES or call our team on 01937 222189.
