NCS Programme by Action4Youth

NATIONAL CITIZEN SERVICE

Action4Youth is proud to deliver the NCS UK programme in Buckinghamshire

We are currently repurposing our NCS programme so watch this space for a series of free and exciting activities coming soon.

National Citizen Service (NCS) - The experience which turns no you cant into no we can!

As a national youth programme, over 150 partner organisations come together to form the NCS network. 

Action4Youth has worked with NCS since 2010, delivering the life-changing experience for young people in Aylesbury. To date, we have worked with over 4000 young people, helping them to realise their potential and smash their future goals.

BUT ENOUGH ABOUT US, WHAT EXACTLY IS NCS?

Designed for 16-17 year olds, NCS is a youth programme that runs every summer during the school holidays.

The experience is all about emboldening young people, by giving them the buzz of being an adult (without all the responsibilities). On NCS, participants live away from home and get a taste of independence. They mix with a new crowd of people and take on exciting challenges together. The experience helps young people to develop skills that will set them up for life after school. Participants then get a chance to use these new-found skills, by tackling a passion project of their choosing. NCS is dedicated to providing a platform for young people where they can speak up and get their voice heard and tackle real world issues close to home. 

The experience might last a few weeks, but the impact? That lasts a lot longer. Since day one, in 2010, nearly 600,000 young people have taken part in NCS, completing over 14.5 million hours of community action and gaining priceless life experience.

What is the NCS programme all about?

The National Citizen Service is the flagship Government initiative aimed at 15 to 17 year olds which offers the chance to take part in a programme that is challenging, fun and develops skills and confidence.

NCS seeks to promote:

  • a more interconnected society by mixing participants of different backgrounds
  • a more accountable society by supporting the transition into adulthood for young people
  • a more engaged society by enabling young people to work together to create social action projects in their local communities.

Action4Youth offer 2 NCS programmes per year. We run a 3 week summer open programme and, in partnership with Aylesbury College and Bucks UTC, a shorter 2 week programme in Autumn. 

Action4Youth also offer an SEN 2 week Autumn programme in partnership with schools which cater for special educational needs and disability.

Course graduates are formally awarded their certificates at our annual graduation and awards ceremony every September in front of family and friends at Aylesbury Waterside Theatre.
