Togetherness Series: Making Lifelong Friends
Every summer, we love hearing the stories of new friendships formed on NCS. We also hear that it can feel daunting not knowing anyone when you first sign up, so we wanted to share some of these incredible stories with you.
Our Togetherness Series should give you an idea of all the amazing, positive things that can happen when people from all walks of life come together. From the challenges you face, to the lessons you learn about yourself, your new friends will be with you every step of the way on NCS, and beyond!
