Work on delivering life-changing NCS programmes with Twin

Applying for an NCS position at Twin

The experience that turns "No, you can't!" into "No, WE CAN"

Twin is proud to be one of over 150 partner organisations that makes up the NCS Network.

We help young people to realise their potential, smash their future goals, and have a lot of fun along the way!

Twin is responsible for delivering the life-changing experience for young people in multiple locations in London: Bexley, Greenwich, Lambeth, Tower Hamlets, Hackney, Waltham Forest, Croydon, Sutton, Wandsworth, and we're also in Dorset. 

But, what exactly is NCS?

Designed for 16-17-year-olds, NCS is a youth programme that runs every summer and autumn, during school holidays. The experience is all about emboldening young people, by giving them accelerated course into adulthood. On NCS, participants live away from home, mix with a new crowd of people and take on exciting challenges together.

The experience helps young people to develop skills that will set them up for life after school. Participants then get a chance to use these new-found skills, by tackling a passion project of their choosing. NCS is dedicated to providing a platform for young people where they can speak up, get their voice heard and tackle real-world issues close to home. The experience might last just a few weeks, but the impact? That lasts a lot longer. Since day one, in 2011, nearly 600,000 young people have taken part in NCS, completing over 14.5 million hours of community action, and gaining priceless life experiences.
