Our History

Who we work with

NCS is more than just a youth programme — we are a family of hundreds of grassroots organisations, each with their own unique expertise and ability to inspire young people on their NCS journey. As such, NCS has a positive local impact in communities right across the country.

In addition to our delivery partners, we work collaboratively with many inspiring organisations who have a crucial role to play in delivering quality content for young people. 

Together, we’re committed to building a national institution, a rite of passage that can transform young lives and their communities - one NCS graduate at a time.
