NCS hosted by The Challenge invites you to inspire the next generation, and get involved with our summer programme this year. We have a number of partnerships that involve working alongside teams of young people aged 16-17, along with DBS-cleared NCS staff.

Become a community partner

A team of young people will visit your organisation on three occasions to fund raise, plan and execute a social action project for you. We will work with you to ensure that the experience is as fun, interesting and as beneficial as possible for the people served by your organisation, as well as for the NCS Participants.

Become an enterprise challenge partner

Visit a group of between 48-84 young people and set a real-world challenge that your business or organisation is facing, and our young people will develop some solutions. This is a fantastic way to get youth input and feedback and give young people an insight into the working world.

Host a professional visit

A team of up to 14 young people will visit your organisation where they will be introduced to a professional office environment, pitch their plans for a Social Action Project and receive feedback and advice, benefiting from your expertise.

Be a pitch advisor

Visit our young people on their pitch day. Up to 5 teams of young people will be presenting their plans for a Social Action Project, and your role will be to give advice and expertise to improve their project and make it even more impactful. This is a really fun way to find out more about what is happening in your community and get involved.
