Wave Leaders

Team Leaders

What does NCS look like?

Week One: Young people (aged 15 to 17) spend the first week getting to know each other on an activity residential, challenging themselves and making new friendships.
Week Two: We go away on another week-long residential where we run sessions on life skills and personal development – Money Management, Healthy Relationships, First Aid, and meeting an Olympian, as well as other team leader led workshops.
Week Three: Young people come in to our venue each day and plan for their Social Action project, something that matters to them in their local community.
Week Four: Social Action delivery week! Young people carry out their volunteer projects in their communities – these range from flashmobs to raise awareness for LGBTQ+, care packages for the homeless, making documentaries for Age UK, green space clearups…..

What is it like to work on NCS with Groundwork South?

“Not only is it well organised, thought out and cared for, the team is extremely fun, ridiculous and made working educational, playful and I felt like I developed a lot.”

“It's been great doing NCS for Groundwork again. This programme has definitely been the best organised and straightforward that I've worked on. I always knew what was happening next and had all the resources that I could possibly need. All my colleagues have been brilliant and supportive and it's definitely been one of the most fun and rewarding jobs I've had. So thanks!”

"This is my 9th NCS that I’ve facilitated on and this is by far the best provider I’ve come across.”
