FEEL UNSTOPPABLE TOGETHER

You’ve worked hard. After a busy year of coursework, revision and exams, NCS is the perfect way to kick back and try something completely different. At last you’re out of the classroom and into the great outdoors, discovering talents you never knew you had and making friends with some of the best people you’ll ever meet.

Argyle Community Trust delivers the NCS programme to hundreds of young adults 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 coasteering.

Following the week of engaging outdoor activity, participants then takes up residence at a local college campus for the second week which is designed to prepare school-leavers for the opportunities available whilst living independently. Jump to the bottom of the page to see the full breakdown of activity and stages of your NCS experience.

THE 4 STAGES OF SUMMER

In 3-4 weeks achieve more than you ever imagined! Start the adventure, discover more about yourself, take social action to better your community and then celebrate your achievements!

All for only £50.

ADVENTURE
Phase 1

Feel the freedom of the outside world during five days away from home, taking on adrenaline-fuelled activities like rock climbing, canoeing and archery. Your team will cheer you along every step of the way, sharing in every challenge, every success. Then you’ll have a few days back at home for some much-needed rest!

DISCOVERY
Phase 2

Expect transformation, because this week is all about developing YOU. Living independently, you’ll learn essential life skills from local business leaders and charities, gain confidence in public speaking, communications skills and budgeting. It all looks great on your CV, whatever you do next.

SOCIAL ACTION
Phase 3

Now it’s time to make your mark. Back at home, you and your team will devise a community project based on an issue you feel passionate about. You have the skills and confidence to do anything – the more original, the better! This is your chance to feel proud by making a real difference in your community.

CELEBRATION
Phase 4

Finally, take stock of all you’ve achieved. You’ll have overcome challenges, pushed yourself into new and exciting territories, and had experiences you never thought possible. Celebrate your triumphs with your fellow NCSers at one great event before exploring all the opportunities NCS opens you up to. This is just the beginning!
