THE SUMMER THAT TURNS NO YOU CAN'T INTO NO WE CAN
NCS brings together young people from different backgrounds and helps them develop greater confidence, self-awareness and responsibility.
It encourages personal and social development by working on skills like leadership, teamwork and communication. Building skills for work and life, whilst taking on new challenges and meet new friends.
Due to COVID-19 the Summer programme has been repurposed

The first phase is all about challenges.
This week will be spent meeting some amazing new young people and living as a team away from home at an awesome activity site. You will work in groups of up to 16 in an adrenaline fuelled week of challenges and activities such as kayaking, caving, rock climbing and axe throwing.
This is your chance to discover new things, make new friends and enjoy the freedom of being away from home.
The second phase sees you and your team at a University campus, living away from home. Through our many workshops, you will improve your life skills such as communication, leadership and self-confidence, which all looks great on your UCAS statement and CV.
You will have the opportunity to also meet some key organisations and important people from your local community.
This is where you can make a difference!
The skills and experience you have gained and developed over the past two weeks all come together and you will have the opportunity to create your very own social action project.
In your teams you will plan and deliver a project surrounding any charity, cause or organisation that you are interested in. This phase will empower you to make a real change to your local community.
It’s time to celebrate!
You'll have the opportunity to celebrate all your achievements with your friends and family in style.
Your hardwork and effort is recognised with a certificate signed by the Prime Minister to show that you are more than just grades. You'll come back together with your team mates and reflecting on the incredible experiences and achievements you have made.
