London: Former British Prime Minister David Cameron has revealed his new job after quitting political life will be to lead an expansion of the National Citizen Service (NCS) for teenagers.

In an article he wrote for the Daily Telegraph on Tuesday, Cameron said setting up the NCS was one of his proudest achievements, with more than 275,000 having taken part.

He said it was "building bridges across social divides", creating lifelong friendships between teenagers and "building the soft skills, the resilience, the self-confidence and the creativity that can help them get on in life."

The NCS aims to prepare teenagers for work through team-building activities and community projects.

Cameron will be chairman of NCS Patrons, aiming to make the course "a normal part of growing up", the BBC reported.

Having resigned as Prime Minister in the aftermath of June's EU referendum, Cameron also quit his Parliamentary seat last month.

He wrote that his new role would involve "bringing together a senior cross-party and cross-sector group of patrons and ambassadors who can help NCS to reach more youngsters".

"By bringing together expertise from every part of society we can embed NCS in our national fabric," he said, adding that he hoped to "make it a reality for generations to come".

The former Prime Minister said he was "delighted" his successor, Theresa May, was pressing ahead with a National Citizen Service Bill, which would put the NCS on a permanent legal footing and create new duties on schools and councils to promote it.
