Ask us any questions about NCS, run by The Challenge...
Are there any female only programmes?
Due to a number of requests from young people, parents or guardians and teachers, we are offering a limited number of programmes which are only for female participants.
NCS participants and pastoral support staff on the programme, such as the Programme Leader and Senior Mentor, will be female.
Please note there may be some male staff employed at the venues you visit, or male young people from other groups present at the venues. For example, this could be an activity instructor at the outdoor venue during phase 1.
If you want to attend a female-only programme please ask your parent or guardian to contact us and we'll check if there is a female-only programme available near to you.
