National Citizen Service
The National Citizen Service (NCS) is a national programme that brings together 15-17 year olds from different backgrounds and takes them through a programme of activities which builds their confidence and enables them to make a difference in their local community. It helps young people build skills for work and life, whilst taking on new challenges and meeting new people. More details can be obtained from www.ncsyes.co.uk
