People, Potential Possibilities

That's what P3 stands for.

With P3 as our parent charity of The University of the First Age, providing opportunities for young people is exactly what we do.

Here at UFA, our focus is delivering the best NCS experiences to the next generation of young people year on year, across England.

NCS - or National Citizen Service - is a government funded programme that allows young people (aged 15-17) to step out of their comfort zone, learn new skills and make a change in their community.

A typical programme would span 4-weeks in the summer holidays and 9 days during the Autumn half term. These programmes would usually include residential stays and hands-on community work.

However, we have adapted and made changes in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, delivering those key skills safely whilst maintaining the impact our young people have on their local communities.

NCS at UFA allows young people to think for themselves, ignite their passions and make a real change. With social action projects addressing issues such as homelessness, the environment, diversity and equality, hygiene poverty, mental health and many many more, our young people are empowered and ready to take the next step in their future as independent, responsible, passionate and motivated citizens.

Each year we are looking for the best Wave leaders, Team leaders and Team assistants to guide the young people of your local area to aim high and achieve their goals - all whilst giving back to the community they exist within.

NCS - National Citizen Service - is a youth programme like no other! Designed specifically for 16 and 17 year olds, the NCS experience will give young people a clearer idea of what they want from their future. NCS will help them realise that big, exciting things can come from feeling a little bit overwhelmed.  On NCS, they’ll mix with a new crowd, and take on fresh challenges together. Before they know it, they’ll be rooting for each other, as they all tackle their own little hurdles. Along the way, they’ll also get a taste for independence and pick up skills that’ll help them smash their future goals.  And if that’s not enough for them, they’ll also be given a platform to have their voice heard and pursue a passion project. The NCS experience might last just a few weeks, but the impact? That lasts a LOT longer.  Over 500,000 people have already done NCS – want to join the team that gives young people a voice? How can you get involved? We are looking for the...
