Run by the UK’s leading social integration charity, The Challenge, National Citizen Service aims to create a stronger and more understanding society by bringing 15-17-year-olds together for a summer of adventure activities, making new friends, learning new skills, and contributing to their local community.
With recent research from NCS showing that the summer holidays cost parents an average of £600 per child, at just £50 for the entire four week experience – including food, accommodation and activities – NCS could help parents save hundreds of pounds this summer.
The affordable programme offers teenagers a jam-packed and fulfilling summer, by taking part in various activities together such as rock-climbing and kayaking, learning to cook and how to budget, and volunteering in their communities. They’re also given support with public speaking and campaigning before pitching their ideas to a team of professional business people.
Helping young people to build their independence and confidence through overcoming challenges and learning new skills for work and life, NCS can also boost job, college and university applications.
