NCS (National Citizen Service)

A Youth Programme Like No Other

Designed specially for 16 and 17 year olds, the NCS experience will give you a clearer idea of what you want from your future.  We’ll help you realise that big, exciting things can come from feeling a little bit overwhelmed. Show yourself exactly what you’re made of! 

Through NCS, you’ll mix with a new crowd, and take on fresh challenges together. Before you know it, you’ll be rooting for each other, as you all tackle your own little hurdles. Along the way, you’ll also get a taste for independence and pick up skills that’ll help you smash your future goals.  If that’s not enough for you, you’ll also be given a platform to have your voice heard and pursue a passion project. 

The NCS experience might last just a few weeks, but the impact will last much longer!  

Over 3,000 people have already done NCS in Shrewsbury and you could join them. 


 But is NCS for me? 

A massive part of NCS is celebrating diversity in every way possibly. Everyone should feel at home on NCS – so whether you’re a social butterfly or a slightly awkward caterpillar, we’ve got lots of ways to help you feel at ease around a bunch of new people. Not least, the best Team Leaders, who’ll always have your back. 

Millie a graduate from our 2018 NCS programme said: “I’ve learnt skills I will be able to carry through the rest of my life as well as having so many different opportunities that have truly shaped who I am today. My entire experience with NCS has been incredible, I’ve loved every second of it and I am so glad I decided to take part in summer 2019. Over the course of a year, I’ve generated life changing skills that have given me the confidence to be myself within everything I do, I’ve learnt so much and I’m so grateful for what NCS has done for me, it’s completely changed my life. I’ve made so many friendships through the program and it’s been so inspiring getting to know both young people and staff and why they are so connected to NCS, and I truly believe I wouldn’t be where I am today without the experience and impact NCS has had on me.”
