National Citizen Service – Summer 2019

Posted By

NCS, the country’s flagship youth programme is for 15-17 year olds. Your teens have either already expressed an interest or have signed up to take part in NCS Summer 2019!


NCS is a unique experience where teenagers can live away from home, develop key life skills like budgeting, how to boost their CV, craft a top-notch personal statement and so much more – all alongside meeting other teens from different backgrounds. There’s also the chance to give back to the community, with 30 hours dedicated to social action projects.


The summer programme lasts four weeks in the summer holidays so they won’t miss any school. It’s also backed by the government and costs just £35 to take part – including food, travel and accommodation. Until 26th of April there is an Easter offer discounting the price down to just £20!


For a chance to find out more and ask any questions, please come along to one of our ‘Keep Warm’ events, these will be happening:


Wednesday 24th April at Furness Academy.

Wednesday 15th May at Dowdales School.



NCS is a truly fantastic opportunity for young people to kick start their future.
