As the Mayor's Youth Ambassador I saw the positive effect that bringing young people together through demanding, public spirited activity has. As you can imagine I'm very pleased to see David Cameron commit to implamenting this plan.
The aim is that all 16 year-olds will take part in NCS bringing young people from different backgrounds together, to promote social mixing, help the transition to adulthood and encourage community engagement.
The Party has been developing these plans for the past four and half years, and have helped to raise £2 million for, and worked with, independent charities and social enterprises to run pilot programmes in London, Wales and North West in 2006, 2008 and 2009.
