NYSC to strategise for emerging challenges
The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) is to take proactive steps towards responding to emerging challenges in the pursuit of its mandate.To this end, a think tank is to be set up to articulate strategies on the scheme’s policy thrust and administration to make it more responsive to national needs at all times.
This was part of the resolutions made at the 2017 Annual Management Conference of the scheme, which took place from 25th to 28th September, 2017 in Jos.
The forum also resolved that opportunities would be explored for deeper involvement of the private sector and other stakeholders in the successful implementation of the NYSC programmes. It was further agreed that research and development would be strengthened not only to enhance operational efficiency, but also for greater impact assessment.
The Director-General reaffirmed their commitment to the welfare of corps members and directed all coordinators to follow suit.
