The National Youth Service Corps is a Nigerian Government organization put in place to engage fresh Nigerian graduates for a year with the sole motive of national integration. It was established in 1973 and it first began as a university graduate program but the polytechnic graduates well later incorporated. It is fondly referred to NYSC.


The NYSC scheme involves posting of the fresh graduates to a different part of the country to serve while the government pay them allowance. The posting is usually done in such a way that the graduates are posted to places outside their background and places of educational exploit to places they know little or nothing about. The NYSC scheme comprises three (3) weeks orientation camp and the rest at place of primary assignment (PPA).

It is to be noted that even if you want to redeploy, you must first go through the three (3) weeks orientation camp in that location.
