X-Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos has helped to launch NCS 2013 and encourage other 16 and 17 year olds to sign-up to a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to build skills for work and life and boost their job chances
Olympic silver medallist and British Judo Champion Gemma Gibbons also backed the campaign in Manchester's iconic Victoria Baths.
Now in its third year, NCS is a unique journey of personal discovery, through participation in a range of activities, that builds essential life confidence for 16 and 17 year olds and also benefits local communities. Taking part in NCS is also a sought after addition to any CV.
The programme takes place over three weeks, plus 30 hours of social action, during the school holidays, including action-packed residential time away from home where participants are able to bond with teammates over activities such as hiking, canoeing and climbing.
Tulisa said 'It's great to be part of the 2013 launch of NCS. Saying yes to NCS is great way for 16 and 17 year olds to create their own future and build their confidence. I don't think anyone should ever underestimate what young people can achieve ' and NCS is a brilliant way to get a life-changing journey started.'
