National Citizen Service (NCS)

NCS is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for 15 to 17-year-olds from all backgrounds to build new skills for work and life by taking on new challenges, becoming more independent and contributing to their community through social action. Participants improve communication skills, work in a team and develop as leaders, in line with the NCS aim of developing a more cohesive, engaged and responsible society.
