The National Citzen Service (NCS) is a three-week part-residential programme for 16-17-year-olds in the UK. It is focussed on fun and discovery, and also helps young people to build confidence and grow life skills. The programme centres around making a mark on your local community by delivering your own social action project.
NCS YES Live is an event that takes place every year to recognise the work of the young people on NCS and the impact they have in their local communities. The event will host 3,000 young people who are involved with the programme.
Tinie Tempah, NCS’s Ambassador, will be headlining the event. He will also be joined by Team GB Olympic gymnast Louis Smith, alongside other celebrity guests. Awards will be given out on the day for “Social Action Star” as well as the “Most Inspirational Team Leader or Mentor”.
The YouTube cohosts were announced via Snapchat, and you can follow NCS on Snapchat to find out more about what they have to say. At the event, the YouTubers will be joined by Snapchat star Poppy Jamie. They will be holding interviews with the show’s guests and performers throughout the day for the exclusive Greenroom show, as well as documenting the day on their own channels.
