NI NCS runs twice a year in summer and autumn and is delivered in 16 areas across the country over the course of the two seasons.

Taking place from the end of June in summer and the Halloween break in autumn, NCS begins with an action packed residential experience away from home within a team of 12-15 people, then a discovery phase to learn skills for life and work, and finally meeting up with the team to plan and deliver an action project to make a difference.  We wrap up with a graduation and celebration event with all NI NCS graduates from your season.

You can register your details at any time for more local info and application pack at ncsyes.co.uk or get in touch with Corinna directly - 02890321462 - [email protected]

If you are a education or youth work professional working in school, college or community, we can come and visit your young people to give them more information and help them sign up.  We can offer assemblies, presence at careers/volunteering fairs or parent events; smaller presentations or workshops and content for your newsletters or emails.
