NCS The Challenge – An Introduction
NCS is a youth and community programme for fifteen – seventeen year olds operational in London, Surrey, Berkshire, Yorkshire, Lancashire, Manchester, and across the West Midlands. The young people take part in a three week programme that includes two parts residential (outdoor activity centre and university residential) and one part work in their local community, where they work with a local partner to design and deliver a Social Action campaign. After the programme and graduation, the young people are invited to join our alumni scheme The Challenge Society and have the opportunity to partake in year round events.
