NCS is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity open to all 16 to 17 year olds across England.

The Autumn NCS program takes place during half-term and then the volunteering hours are completed during evenings and weekends in the following month.

146 teens will graduate from the Autumn 2016 delivery of NCS powered by Essex Boys and Girls Clubs. Each has completed 30 hours of planning and volunteering as part of the social action phase of their project, totalling 4,380 hours of voluntary support for good causes.
