National Citizen Service (NCS)
Concordia is proud to be a delivery partner for the National Citizen Service (NCS) programme in the Sussex area. Over the last 9 years Concordia has seen thousands of young people successfully completing the programme. We currently deliver the NCS ‘Local to You’ Community Experience as part of Concordia Youth Action (CYA).
Designed especially for 16 to 17-year-olds, the NCS experience will give young people a clearer idea of what they want from their future. On NCS, you’ll mix with a new crowd, take on fresh challenges, get a taste of independence and pick up skills that’ll help you smash future goals.
NCS is a Government funded scheme to encourage young people to become more active in their local communities. Young people build upon their life skills by developing teamwork, communication and independent living skills. Each group designs a social action volunteering project for a charity of their choice to help enhance their local community and make a difference, which further develops their confidence, self-awareness and responsibility.
