Find out the latest news about Bolton's NCS Programme

Young people aged 16 or 17 can take part in NCS through Bolton Lads & Girls Club. Don't miss out!

NCS
A youth programme like no other. Designed specially for 16 and 17 year olds, the NCS experience will give you a clearer idea of what you want from your future. We’ll help you realise that big, exciting things can come from feeling a little bit overwhelmed.

…No, seriously, it’s all good. Remember, No. We. Can. Show yourself exactly what you’re made of!

On NCS, you’ll mix with a new crowd, and take on fresh challenges together. Before you know it, you’ll be rooting for each other, as you all tackle your own little hurdles. Along the way, you’ll also get a taste for independence and pick up skills that’ll help you smash your future goals. And if that’s not enough for you, you’ll also be given a platform to have your voice heard and pursue a passion project.

The NCS experience might last just a few weeks, but the impact? That lasts a LOT longer.

Over 500,000 people have already done NCS – want to join them?

Is it for you?

A massive part of NCS is celebrating diversity in every way possible. Everyone should feel at home on NCS – so whether you’re a social butterfly or a slightly awkward caterpillar, we’ve got lots of ways to help you feel at ease around a bunch of new people. Not least, the best Team Leaders, who’ll always have your back.

So why get involved?

Try new things and have a few laughs Sure, you could Netflix-binge your way through summer… but if you want to squeeze more out of the long break, get yourself on NCS. Here’s what you’ll be doing…

Be epic

In your first week, you’ll live away from home and nurture your adventurous side. Whether you take on the high ropes, wild waves, or scale a wall, one thing we can guarantee is, by Friday night you’ll feel fearless (and pretty worn out)! Don’t worry, you’ll have the weekend back home to catch your breath.

Live Life

Next up? Enjoy another five days away from home with your new-found mates. Get a crash course in adulting and pick up skills to set you up for life. By the time you’re done, you’ll be speaking to a room full of people without freezing up and know a whole load more about what you want from life after school.

Do Good

Fuelled by your first two weeks, you’ll have the opportunity to use your voice and have a lasting impact. Want to see a change in your community? Countrywide? Or even globally? This is your chance to deliver an impressive ‘passion project’ – we can’t wait to see what you and your teammates achieve!

Go Party!

Ok, so this is a VIPOYE (Very Important Part Of Your Experience), naturally. By this point, you’ll have achieved A LOT. Now it’s time to be recognised. You’ve got to go out with a bang, right?

“…Is there an after party?”, we hear you scream.
