At Young Gloucestershire, we are all excited about the opportunity in delivering NCS – National Citizen Service - during spring-summer and autumn to over 300 young people. This will be the 3rd year that Young Gloucestershire has been involved in this amazing project and the recruitment is well under way with presentations at school assemblies.

National Citizen Service (NCS) is open to all 16 and 17-year-olds in England.

It helps you build your skills for work and life, while you take on new challenges and meet new friends.

It runs in the spring, summer and autumn. You’ll have a short time away from home and take part in a team project that will help your community.

NCS brings together young people from different backgrounds and helps them develop greater confidence, self-awareness and responsibility. It encourages personal and social development by working on skills such as leadership, teamwork and communication.

Participants develop a social action project to deal with a local issue they’re passionate about, and spend 30 hours putting the project into action in their community.
