National Citizen Service
Cambridge United Community Trust would like to introduce you to the National Citizen Service (NCS) programme. NCS brings together 16- to 17-year olds from different backgrounds in a programme of challenge, learning, and discovery.
This enables all participants to develop the confidence, and skills they need to become more engaged with their communities and become active and responsible citizens, whilst having an amazing and enjoyable, action-packed experience!
The young people who take part will enjoy an all-action outward bound residential trip, before returning to Cambridge to continue their personal development with a number of tasks and challenges. The final aspect of the programme is to plan and deliver a project in the local community.
The Next Delivery: Summer 2019
Wave 1: Start Date - 22nd July 2019 // End Date- 16th August 2019
Wave 2: Start Date- 5th August 2019 // End Date- 30th August 2019
To register your interest or to sign up for the summer programme please complete the application forms below, or please email your name and contact number to: firstname.lastname@example.org

David Cameron, Ex-Prime Minister and founder of the NCS
