We at the Robins Foundation are proud to work with NCS as delivery partners to offer 15-17 year olds the unique chance to experience independence and gain a clearer idea of what they want from their future.

NCS is a national youth programme specially designed for 15-17 year olds. We give young people a few weeks out over the summer holiday to meet new people, try new things and cover new ground.

We’re all about helping teenagers realise their potential, by giving them a taste for independence and loading them up with new skills so they can go on to smash their future goals.

What happens on NCS?

Week one: 

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.

Week two: 

Next up? Enjoy another four nights away from home with your new-found mates. Get a unique experience of living in university halls where you will be given the chance to experience independent living while gaining addition skills such as: Graffiti art, music production, drama, Street Dance, freestyle BMXing and arts (the specific activities will be selected by you)!

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.

Week three:

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!

Week four:

Once you've finished your social action project you will plan and throw yourself and your mates a party to celebrate what has been an incredible four weeks.

All of this for only £50!
