National Citizen Service (NCS) is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity open to all 16 and 17 year olds in England, which helps you build your skills for work and life, while you take on new challenges and meet new friends.
Running in the spring, summer and autumn, participants have a short time away from home and take part in a number of outdoor, team-building activities.
Everton in the Community has delivered the NCS programme for a number years, with nearly 600 young people graduating from the government initiative.
After the residential trips, participants will be asked to complete a social action project, with the aim of changing public opinion towards young people in their local areas.
At the end of the course, participants will graduate from the NCS programme at special event for family and friends at Goodison Park, or another city location, to showcase the fantastic work they have achieved during the summer.
2015 saw the charity secure funding to deliver NCS on behalf of Ingeus UK, enabling the continuation of its ground-breaking work in creating opportunities for young adults.
