National Citizen Service

1 January 2014

National Citizen Service (NCS) is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that helps you build skills for work and life, while you complete new challenges and meet new friends.

You'll have a short time away from home and take on outdoor activities, before making your mark in your local community as you bring a team project to life.

The Football League Trust runs NCS programmes for thousands of 16 and 17-year-olds with its football clubs and organisations across the country. You can see what some of the guys got up to last year by checking out the NCS FLT Facebook page.

How Does it Work?

Away Weeks
With NCS you'll live with your team at an NCS site for two weeks (with a couple of days at home inbetween). While you're there you'll take part in a range of activities, learn loads about yourself and make new friends. At the end, you and your team head home to help out in your local community.

Skills Building
A huge part of your NCS experience is developing and growing your skills, but the coolest part is that you'll have the opportunity to put them into practice when you take on projects in your community.

At the end of it all, get dressed up for the NCS graduation ceremony, where you'll be recognised for your achievements and even get a certificate signed by the Prime Minister. It doesn't stop there though. As a graduate you'll have access to loads of other opportunities and the chance to venture overseas with the International Citizen Service.
