Description: National Citizen Service (NCS) is a flagship government programme that gives 16 and 17-year-olds the chance to learn new skills and get involved in their communities. NCS promotes: • a more cohesive society by mixing participants of different backgrounds; • a more responsible society by supporting young people’s transition into adulthood; and • a more engaged society by enabling young people to work together to create social action projects in their local communities. NCS brings young people together from different backgrounds (e.g. religious, ethnic and socioeconomic) to work together, and teaches them what it means to be responsible and serve their communities. It is a high quality personal development programme that gives young people a chance to prove to themselves and their peers what they can do. NCS is part of a broader agenda of improving services and outcomes for young people between the ages of 13-19, reflected in the Positive for Youth policy statement published in December 2011. NCS builds on a substantial range of previous government initiatives that aim to increase voluntary activity among young people and develop their life and citizenship skills. Such initiatives include the National Young Volunteers’ Service and the Millennium Volunteers programme. The programme also draws inspiration from international programmes such as the Americorps, a programme developed in the United States that supports volunteering and engagement in social action.
