ARGYLE Community Trust delivers the NCS programme to hundreds of youngsters across Devon and Cornwall each year, and we are now accepting applications for the summer of 2019.

NCS begins with a week of adventure with a wide range of exciting activities, such as paddle boarding, surfing, rock climbing, abseiling, kayaking, sailing and quarrysteering.

Moving on from a week packed full of engaging outdoor activity, participants then takes up residence at Plymouth College for a second week designed to prepare our school-leavers for the opportunities available whilst living independently.

We are always looking out for enthusiastic and responsible people to extend their NCS experiences by becoming team leaders and assistant team leaders. For more information, contact

What we do

After the two week-long residential trips, each participant will learn valuable work-specific skills and qualifications during a planning week at Home Park Stadium. It is throughout this time each participant has the chance to improve their CV by gaining accreditations which will help them to deliver a local community Social Action Project (SAP).

The young volunteers will also carry out a 30 hours voluntary placement in their local community, using all the new skills and friendships they have made since the start of the project. Last year saw groups of young people redecorating local classrooms, delivering free football festivals for young children and serving up a three-course meal for local senior citizens.
