NCS grads have access to exclusive events and opportunities as well as the chance to contribute, share and keep in touch.

Having completed NCS, you are eligible to apply for the NCS Graduate Programme. It’s a great way of staying in touch with NCS, helping to shape the programme and maybe work with us in the future.

As part of your unique role as an NCS graduate, you’ll put your Social Action experience to good use, as you team up with a local cause to make an incredible difference to peoples lives.

To complete your graduate year, you will need to complete a minimum of 16 hours of further engagement, whether that be volunteering in your community, helping out at a recruitment event or coming away on the programme in 2019.

Sign up

NCS grads get access to exclusive opportunities including events, jobs, International Citizen Service and much more. On the Opportunity Hub, you can learn new skills and gain funding for future social action projects. You can also apply to become one of our seasonal staff, building your CV.


There are national and regional events for our grads to get involved with. You can reunite with your NCS family, exclusive concerts headlined by celebs, and local gatherings and workshops. Your journey doesn’t end with the programme – it’s only just beginning.
