Hi everyone,
I’ve applied to the NCS regional youth board and I was just wondering if anyone knows when you find out whether you’ve been accepted or not. Hope everyone’s having a great summer!

Hi! I’m glad you applied for the Regional Youth Board, I did it last year and it was really good! I found out around late September (by that time I completely forgot that I applied). We had a one-week residential programme called Kickstart in the autumn half-term - make sure you go because it’s the best part of being on the Regional Youth Board! I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions! I’m currently on the National Youth Board if that helps xxx

You will get an email about it, I’m one of the people who’s been shortlisting for Regional Youth Board and from what I’ve seen, it’ll take few weeks for you to get an email about it.

Some regions may had not a lot of people to shortlist so they just selected people very quickly, but regions like Yorkshire and Humberside have got about 300+ people that have applied and it takes a lot of time to select the right people.

If I’m not mistaken, the deadline is around next week or so.

Hi, just got an email now! I got accepted! Only problem is that kickstart doesn't coincide with my school half term. Is it worth it taking a week off from a-levels for it (i do maths, further maths, physics and computing and have 4*65 minute lessons a week per subject so a lot of learning time missed out on and a lot of catch up)

So what do you think I should do guys?

Congratulations!! My mates’ friend also made it onto Kickstart! I’ve honestly done Kickstart 2 years ago now and I would recommend getting that time off.

I’d advice that you email the NCS Trust to give you a letter that you can hand in to college to get that time excused. That times counts as your volunteering hours as well which you have to do during your college time.

Hi guys,
I'm on the National Youth Board and I know quite a few people who were reserves for kickstart and got a place so don't lose hope just yet.
Just lemme know if you have any more questions
