NCS this summer will be a 2 week programme delivered across August in your community, where 15-17 year olds will work in teams guided by NCS staff to Keep Doing Good.

Week 1 will give young people the opportunity to develop new skills such as leadership, team building, presentation skills and the chance to plan their own social action project. This will include workshops and activity sessions.

Week 2 will allow the young people to create and carry out their very own social action and volunteering projects. Helping the community where it needs it the most.
