National Citizen Service

Groundwork National Citizen Service (NCS) is an opportunity for 15 to 17 year olds to have an adventure, learn new skills, make new friends and make a difference to their communities.

It runs outside term time in spring, summer and autumn and has three parts:

1. Outdoor activity week – a week staying at an outdoor activity centre and taking part in activities like climbing, rafting and canoeing .

2. Getting the team back together to plan a project to improve the local area. This usually involves staying away from home in university style accommodation.

3. Putting the plan into action and completing the project.
