When: Summer holidays (see exact dates in the ‘Events’ section)
Who: Y11 and Y12 age (you do not have to be in school)
Due to the number of young people we take away in summer, there are different start dates. This also helps young people attend trips even if they’re having a summer holiday with their family. For exact dates, please see the events section.
Phase 1: Adventure (4 nights)
You’ll live with your team at an Activity Centre. Take part in rock climbing, kayaking, rafting, zip wire, high ropes and much more!
Phase 2: Future (4 nights)
You’ll live in student halls in the heart of Sheffield city centre. Each day, you’ll take part in skills workshops, including self-defence, Apprentice-style challenges, project planning and more!
Phase 3: Making a difference (60 hours)
Now you can put your skills into action! In your teams, you’ll design and plan a social action project to benefit your local community. Pitch your idea in the Dragons’ Den to battle it out for some funding!
Phase 4: Graduation
Once you’ve completed the programme, come and celebrate with family and friends! You will also be invited to join the NCS Graduates team which involves planning future events, exclusive work placements and the chance to be on the youth board!
