Greetings to everyone,


How is the service journey going, it is really disrupted now,


I came here after seen a post on our "10 FACTS ABOUT LIFE AFTER NYSC" and this make me remember my post sometime last year on post NYSC depression, I told the author of the features post to include the link there too. I hope he does.


I also saw a question on the nysc group and I kind of like the way Admin answered it, that is what I feel like sharing


"
Attention!


All 2020 batch 'A' corps members who have over 100,000 in thier account should immediately move such money to another account or upgrade the account to avoid NEFT returns in the coming payment of January 2021 allowance.


This is a directive from head of account, NYSC.


Thank you.


Is this true?
"


I actually saw someone share it on my NYSC WhatsApp page before one of the admin explained, what it means


"
I really doubt the authentic of such, NYSC opened account are standard account


And perhaps National Electronic Funds Transfer (NEFT) is for initiating a Transaction not for a collected one
"


I did a little research on it likewise, I discover that it is just like any other form of electronic funds transfer or payment just like Point of Sale terminals (PoS), Automated Teller Machine (ATM) and Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD).


And have nothing to do with your account, just like Ussd with just not remove your money and infact action taken by this electronic fund transfer are irrevocable funds transfer instruction. That it only need court order to remove, and perhaps the law guiding Nigeria Interbank Settlement System (NIBSS) stipulated that in case or return for NEFT return will be 24 hrs and for NIP 10 mins


Finally I know if Nigeria even does allow NEFT anyhow, why should a government legally earned money be taken away, I feel that will be wrong too


Thanks

Hello everyone it been a while, I have written here, If you are yet to read the post I wrote on


Let jump right into it,


NYSC Relocation/Redeployment

How it works and everything about it


Relocation is like a product/service of NYSC(National Youth Service Corps), and you must know this service of the scheme is very regulated and most importantly FREE


Before we diver into who can get relocated and on what basis, let us talk about the things itself


NYSC Redeployment or Relocation like the name says it is the act of changing your state code and deployment.
Every graduating student or prospective corps members are given the opportunity to choice 4 state in which NYSC will later put or better word post/deploy you into 1.


This 1 state to have it changed is what is called NYSC Relocation or Redeployment and it can be done several times, for genuine reason though.


Noted everything I will be saying here are the norms and some peoples cases might have differ this norms.


How is the process carried out


With the full computerisation of the operations of NYSC, relocation exercise is done online.


This start during the online registration exercise, in which the platform provides opportunities for married women and people with life-threatening ailments not only to indicate their status but also upload their evidence and get automatically posted to their spouses’ places of domicile or health facilities respectively.


We are already answering the next question


But let us continue on this first, corps members are given the opportunity to apply for relocation on marital or health grounds while in the orientation camps. Relocation is done electronically and filled manually especially in place with automatic redeployment(We will further get into that)


Can I get relocated/redeployed after camp?


After the camp relocation is still possible for any corps members who meet the criteria(we will discuss that soon). But such relocations are carried out three (3) months after the orientation course. The corps members must apply online and the State Coordinators appropriately recommend online too before the relocations are effected.


Can I redeploy anytime I want


No, (short answer) NYSC policy stop relocations or redeployment (6) months into the service year


Let move to the criteria that qualify you for relocation


Relocation happens on 2 (two) major grounds namely: Marital and Health.
But there is a third sweet spot like I call it, Insecurity
This sweet spot is available for corpers posted to Yobe, Bornu, Adamawa. It might sound odd but Bornu is the best of the three.
You pick Bornu from the onset and you don't end too far north but may Katsina, Jigawa or Kano for your camping.


The other two(2) criteria involves valid documents,
Marital
such as:


  • Marriage Certificate or Affidavit of Marriage,
  • Newspaper Change of Name,
  • A Letter indicating the husbands Place of Domicile.

Which must have been uploaded online during registration and verified in camp,
Health
for health grounds documents upload is likewise required including your doctor licence number, details of the aliment and proof.
This is only applicable to only those with life threatening ailments. The applicant must support his/her request with his/her Medical History and be ready to appear before a Medical Panel for an interview that will either validate or invalidate the request as the case may be.


How it looks like(Sample of NYSC redeployment letter)


All the above said is to get something like this ????????
5fe775fc1b5ac


2020 Relocation Terms
5fec7911ef9ff


In conclusion


Like I said in the beginning National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Scheme does not charge money for relocation which is the right of every qualified Corps Member, neither does it charge money for deployment, posting or any of the services it renders, nor as an agent. So be careful of those who make themselves one

On our platforms we have discussed almost all camp activities from , to expectations and reality of NYSC camp.


Today we want to highlight four major NYSC camp hacks to getting a good PPA with screenshot of those doing them


The hacks we will be discussing here, are applicable for everyone, as one of the way getting good PPA that we can't ignore is via connection.


Let us start this by saying two of the four segment of the scheme is orientation course, and place of primary assignment (PPA).


You get a place of primary assignment (PPA) after the three weeks in camp in a posting letter, while some will redeploy to another state.


But before this day of posting, what is I can tell you how anyone can influence this result so that we will not just fall in sadness like many do after seen the local government and villages.


A- Be outstanding with parade:


Everyone is forced to join parade, and I wish everybody can get the better but it is far from the reality. Therefore you need to put on your A game, and be outstanding with your performance not necessarily in the whole camp, but at least in the platoon.


5fded1300716e


B- Be a platoon leader


Like the word of that says leaders will be the chief servant. If you think the idea of been a platoon leader is glamorous, read that again, you are literally serving others and protecting their interests.
But this service come with a reward of getting a good PPA and local government when you will not regret serving others for one year


5fded1db4e7fa


C- Be a volunteer


Volunteering is another hack in the toolkit to getting a good PPA with electricity and good network
Things you can volunteer for include; Man O War, OBS(Orientation Broadcasting Service), Medical team, Kitchen team, Religion leader, Quarter guard, Band.


5fded277c81ba


Note that not some of this volunteering need some level of interest extra work and maybe experience. Been outstanding in this will set you to been retained in the state capital, even as some can come back to camp to assist out batches.
5fded28e448a6


D- Mr Macho or Madam Macho


Lastly, you can compete for things, in camp if you have the physic you can win and be sure recognition for Mr and Miss Marcho
5fded44482457


In conclusion
You should be see the pattern now, if you don't have someone to influence your posting or a first class degree in university and you don't want to be sleeping around as a lady which sometimes do not work.


The hack here is recognisable service. During my time in camp, the guy that draw a portrait of the state coordinator have access to know where it is been redeployed to before others, while us we are still struggling to check portal, he is sure of where to go.


But why?


Outstanding service, we must know this is a human scheme and you want to make your name recognisable in this 3 wks to impress people that matter.


Don't mind my use of words, you must not have the mind of impressing actually. That is why some people go through this hack and still doesn't work for them, You get


What do you think should be added, let us know by commenting on NYSC Telegram channel by searching "nyscmembers" on Telegram or on our group by clicking here

This are things to pay attention to, even as you go through the course of your orientation camp


NYSC Orientation Camp is a once in a life opportunity . its a time you really meet different kind of individuals most especially for the butty children and those who went to private university. You will meet , live and learn from strangers. At the end of the day, our experiences might be different but having a fore-knowledge of what to expect will reduce your “camp-shock.” For some this would be a 3 weeks to remember . Try to prepare well as much as you can for the 3 weeks of camp life:


NUMBER 1: HAVE ENOUGH CASH FOR SPENDING.
Yes o . everything in camp is about money . You pay to charge phones , pay to wash , some pay to eat (mammi). pay to even use clean toilets. So just try o and have enough cash. But having experienced being broke (you might not get an ATM to withdraw money), I’ll say please bring pocket money…
But also learn to budget. Don’t spend extravagantly… Be very frugal in your spending. Don’t buy everything you see… Also don’t allow camp photographers take pictures of you randomly- of course unless it is part of
your plan. Be kind to others but also ensure you are not careless with your spending.


NUMBER 2: THE TOILETS & BATHROOMS
These is another aspect to prepare for. Most camps if not all do not have good toilets and bathrooms. Some people have to bath outside , some in
the bush and like i said in number 1 if you have money you could pay around to use a clean one . Just do not expect to see a good one . Some
people have to wake up as early as 3 am to have their bath.


NUMBER 3: SECURITY
Security should be your watch word right from the first minute you step into camp till after you step out of camp. You don’t know the kind of human beings you would mix up with. Just try as much as possible to have
a kind of safe lock for your bags. Most importantly you don’t have to show off or flaunt what you have then you are calling the petty thieves to come collect what they want. Note that nothing is too small to be stolen o!. Be very careful with your belongings…
For example, don’t leave your phone or purse on your bed and turn away for a minute. Don’t get me wrong, the camp is pretty safe. But some cases of theft were reported in my hostel as well as others. There are no locks on hostel doors so everyone including non-corpers (e.g. women who hawk goods) have access to these hostels. So, ensure you up your skills in keeping your things safe.


NUMBER 4 :KITCHEN FOOD
I never ate camp food for once ,i only used my kitchen card to collect bread once. It all depends on you, Some corpers are ‘allergic’ to eating from camp kitchen so they end up spending a huge part of their pocket- money in ‘Mami market.’ The government paid loads to ensure you have three square meal per day. Don’t miss the opportunity to use your meal ticket. Okay, they don’t cook the best meal. But trust me, it is not that bad. You can complement what the kitchen provide with fruits from Mammi
market.


NUMBER 5 : BE SOCIAL
Make friends , no one is an island . Camp is an opportunity for you to make friends .Camp life is pretty stressful. Being around the right people or having the right people around you will help you stay sane. But don’t be too desperate about making friends that you land in the wrong company.
Try to have fun… and relax. Don’t complain too much. Moaning and depressing murmurings will leave you exhausted. Avoid depressing conversations if possible.


NUMBER 6 : EXPECT THE WORST
Do not get to camp expecting everything to be as you planned or have been told. Things change . So the best advice i can give you is just to expect the worst.


NUMBER 7: MAMMY MARKET
Almighty Mammy market is the happening place in camp. It is the spot where things are sold on camp. And yes, things are very expensive there.
The traders/retailers there blame the inflation in the market on camp officials. They say they were charged mercilessly for their rented space. So corpers bear the burden. To avoid being exploited in this market, try as much as you can to come with all the things you need . The traders know that you don’t have any other choice than o buy it there. In mammy is where you have different canteens and restaurants and bars. Some Corpers resume their early in the morning and close with them at night sef .lol. It's just the happening place in camp .There is no camp without mammy
market.


NUMBER 8: RELIGIOUS ACTIVITIES
In every camp there are various worship groups but the only recognized ones by the NYSC officials are the NCCF (National christian Corpers fellowship) and MCAN (Muslim corpers association of Nigeria) . There are also
Winners christian fellowship , Catholic fellowship , Believers world and even deeper life fellowship. Actually due to the various activities in camp one may even not attend there religious activities but that’s no excuse o.There are also other activities competing for attention. Not to forget how tiring waking up early for all those activities can be. But try to maintain a healthy time for devotion. Attend the (NCCF), Catholic or Muslim fellowship where applicable… Don’t neglect your faith. Fellowship with brethren revitalizes.


NUMBER 9: BE ACTIVE
Do not just go to camp and warm he bench or beds ,participate in events
and activities in your various platoons where possible. There game teams like football , volleyball etc. for both male and female. There are also other competitions like miss nysc, other beauty pageants, Mr macho , Mr nysc, drama presentations , talent hunts and much more .
Try as much as you can to be active on camp… Volunteer to serve in the different groups- Nigeria red cross, OBS, man o’ war, etc. When in your platoon, also try as much as you can to participate in the group activities.
All the team dynamics is part of the learning process. Active participation is not necessarily to get cheap recognition… Or massage your ego. It is just that there is no need to tiptoe through camp… You won’t have the experience twice.
Some of the seminars are annoying or a time-waster but try as much as you can not to stay idle…listen up anyway. Maximize all learning avenues. ( I was not ultra-active but I did try to at least participate in some
activities).


NUMBER 10: FINALLY,
Congratulations on reading all the tips i have written above. I hope you’ve gained something . Well finally just go to camp open-minded to camp , I’ll advise that you take your time to actually allow yourself experience the uniqueness of the place you are posted to and the people you’ll meet as well. Try not to judge everyone and everything at first contact.
No amount of experience-sharing can replace your own unique experience
while on camp. So don’t box yourself in. Go to orientation camp and rock
the phase!! DON’T FORGET TO READ THE HAND-BOOKS YOU’LL BE
GIVEN DURING REGISTRATION. As irrelevant as the small booklets might
look, reading them will save you a lot of headache .


Bonus: Learn from the challenges you’ll face. Embrace camp life with a
thankful heart. Stay positive even when it seems you have no reason to.
Glad you are ready so read the following for more info and help.

Since the establishment of NYSC in May 1973, the scheme has only be completely disrupted once.

This post will not go deep into the education sector and how it has been affected or will recover.
Let us start by saying. This present disruption has we all know is not intentional and infact some countries has declared second lockdown which for us we don't hope for such

5f5ff9b51fadd

In this post we hightlight three major fears and what corp member or prospective corp member can do;

Let us see the massive effect of NYSC paused calendar;

  • No calendar; This calendar year has been quite unpredictable in many if not every sector, as even the tertiary education sector that feed the scheme as been paused

What you can do; If you are a corp member this is a good avenue to up your digital skills with the time and money coming in, the right education that you couldn't get in school should be the target. Moreover as the world after NYSC is more competitive than ever before now. You need to really stand out

  • Gap of batch and Vacancy; The time wasted already by the pandemic will create vacancy that will never be filled or regulated till another 2 years cycle. This will affect the amount of pressure on the scheme

What you can do; If you are a prospective corp member this might be a time not to go to NYSC so that you can have a better experience of the scheme, the worse is for some nearby batches who are not finding things to do already. The workforce vacancy will be more, and alot of pressure to measure up will be mounted. This will not allow adequate timing as NYSC might want to go for 2 (two) more round if given the opportunity

  • Election; This is my last fear to mention a few of the present condition of NYSC like I started with, I sincerely hope this will not worsting, NYSC has always been a game against time. With Nigeria not having enough corp member in service i hope there wouldn't be pressure on corp member during any coming election. With Nigeria depending on them for electioneering process

What you can do; I will not give my last advise of waiting to the next year, because that concern more of PCM, but election is corpers responsibility. One thing i will say is always been able to measure the cost of the experience and be careful. As the offer for electoral officiers might be more juicy especially to entice more working force. Note it will still be your choice and choose well

Note: All what is written here are only my thought, observation and opinion and it is written so that you will read and evaluate it. Let us meet and here what you think on our group on Telegram

Getting Access to NYSC Loan is gone through the NYSC secretariat by a non governmental organisation called NYSC foundation

We will talk more about this foundation below in a recent reference by NYSC.

Let us talk more on NYSC Loan

As a Corp member you aremust have created an NYSC separate bank accounts. Meaning getting access to loan can also be through commercial banks just that this might be scare and some of this kind of loans are collateral free

The main channel for NYSC loans is officially through NYSC Foundation.

5f419a42d181a

Let us see a little about the foundation

"
A non-governmental organization, NYSC Foundation has called on Nigerian youths to brace up and embrace leadership roles for greater societal impact.

The foundation also indicated its readiness to partner with government to ensuring the training and retraining for key leadership positions.

In a statement in Abuja, the Executive Secretary, NYSC Foundation, Barr. Ventim Bako, said NYSC Foundation which he described as a non-profit organisation founded in 1999 by ex-corps members in collaboration with the management of NYSC Scheme supports graduate to be self independent and reliant.

He said, “On this special occasion of 2020 International Youth Day themed “Youth Engagement for Global Action”, it affords the NYSC foundation the gratifying opportunity to celebrate with the youth all over the world and to charge them to stand up and be counted.

“It highlights the importance and value of young people’s contributions and draws lessons on how their representation and engagement in formal institutional politics and governance can be significantly enhanced. This underscores that meaningful youth engagement ensures that young people are equal and valuable partners, not only beneficiaries.

“As an alumni and umbrella body that unifies all ex-corps and serving corps members, the interest and representation of the youth comes first and it’s our ultimate priority. In view of this foregoing, the Foundation is planning to launch a project tagged “Youth First” which is expected to put the youth at the fore front and give young people a place at the table.

“The Foundation want to use this opportunity to commend the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development for approving the N75 billion Youth Investment Fund. This is a welcome development and the first of its kind. We congratulate the Hon. Minister for achieving this great feat. This Foundation is very much willing to partner with the Ministry in the implementation of this Scheme and would appreciate the inclusion of the Foundation as one of the participating bodies for the Youth Investment Fund.

“NYSC Foundation also want to use this occasion to appeal to the Federal Government of Nigeria to consider reopening of NYSC Orientation camps for new corps members for proper training and national orientation before deploying them to places of primary assignment but provided all the protocols on covid-19 are put in place by the NYSC Management.”

With NYSC fully running, Government 33k Allawee is not enough, with COVID 19 no extra was now coming in from PPA and there is even nothing to do. That is while we compile what you can do or plan/train for into your service year.

Alot of PPA will/might not even pay corpers after resumption as they will want to settle themselves or main staffs first. so this business can be of help as they require no full time, little money and no certificate

Here comes the question, How to generate extra cash as a corp member?

10 CORPERS SIDE HUSTLE BUSINESS DURING SERVICE YEAR

1. Online Tutoring

This is one of the easiest businesses you can start, Even during this pandemic . You can first start it on WhatsApp, Facebook then extend it to a webinar. There may be a bit competitive in some locality and where that exists, you must try to show some level of expertise. Many parents will be more willing to pay for children home tutoring especially with the WAEC date set.

2. Social Media Manager

Covid 19 has lead alot of business to start embarrassing digital presence and solution for their daily operation, therefore lies a huge opportunity in this space. For corpers, you don't really need to take any class for this as many of it you will figure it out and you can easy learn on the job. This may include copywriting, ad setup and content creation

3. Personal Branding/Influencer

Just like the second point just that this can take a long time before you start making money from it, but on the long run worth it and it is something you can do during your service year, by exploring area, vloging about your travels. Blogging about your new environment and many more

4. Electronic Repairs

During this pandemic the use of internet enabled devices has surged up, as NYSC 2020 batch A corp member, this is a skills that you can use to make some extra money among other corpers, CDS group and even among the hosting community

5. Game TV or life fitness centre

Another way to make some extra bulks in a fun way is to setup a TV station in your area, especially if it is World Cup era. If not alot of people watch weekend games regular league and champions league. (Don't forget to tell your audience to come with their nose mask, if you are planning this). And if you are the game type, you can open a game and fit centre. There are different games you can start like; PS station, table tennis, weight lift, chess game in addition to personal fitness exercise room. This is usually lucrative if you are posted to the city for your primary assignment.

6. Blogging

We talked a little about this early but it is alot on its own and can even include other online business like affiliate marketing apart from ad revenue. This is what you can do in your spare time or at leisure, in as much as there is availability of internet connection and you have your own laptop or phone.

7. Freelancing

This include doing simple digital task for someone else or company all online. As a corp member looking to make extra cash, this is a good area of focus. Has you can be paid in dollars by during this task which usually involves your skills. Platform that offer this include upwork, fiverr, freelancer and even some Nigerian Site

8. Graphic Design

We are now going slightly technical, this skills can be forced to make you money every time, you can design for your PPA. If you are so creative you can even draw your boss and he/she will pay if he/she values art work. But most importantly you can make money from teaching others in your CDS or if you are serving in a school your pupil, or you can design certificate and many more for CDS groups.

9. SEO expert

Like i said we are going a bit technical but you know the more your skills is hard to find the more the pay, so another side hustle for corp member especially with pandemic and increase in small business website is to consult for business to make their keyword searchable and ranking well.

10. Web/App Developer

Lastly but to be honest if your PPA is a good school some parent can pay you more than your entire 12 month allowance to teach their kids this skill. You can also build a project for your PPA or LGA in which when the value is so felt you will surly be rewarded financially or otherwise

Other Business as corp member incudes;

  • Hairstylist

  • Beads knitting and selling

  • Cloth designing and tailoring

  • Shoe making

  • Cooking/Baking

  • Shoe making/deodorant

  • Nose mask making

This businesses here will best suit female corp member but I have male corp member making money as hairstylist and especially shoe making

  • Trading

Trade is also another common business for NYSC corp member. I just the not include on the main list because the pandemic have make a lot of corper at their home. But most corp members posted to North buy product there and send to east for selling.

WHAT YOU NEED FOR SUCCESS

There are some factors that will likely affect your overall success in any of the above business idea. These factors include;
• The locality/state where you are posted for NYSC
• Your business orientation
• Passion
• Dedication
• Hard work
• Capital
• Skills

So, try as much as to factor in these factors when thinking of business to do during NYSC. As I have already said, you don’t to wait until you pass out from NYSC before you start up a business. That one year NYSC period is the best time to start a side hustle and small. As a corp member you are favored as you will receive a lot of support from the community

We usually share some rare opportunities on this platform sometime, in which you might need to write an essay to win something, that can setting you up during and after NYSC. So I will advice you join

Today we want to talk about NYSC Leave
Especially Terminal Leave


Is Terminal Leave part of NYSC?
What are the types of NYSC leave available?
When am I qualified for a leave?


Let us start by talking about all NYSC Leave during service year


Corps members are entitled to the mainly Six (6) type of leave throughout the service year.


  1. Casual Leave/Camp Rest Leave: usually two weeks after camp activities and securing your PPA, corpers take them to get their stuff and themselves ready

  2. Convocation Leave: are most 1-Week during your graduation week, that is if you didn't have it before your service year, you still need approval for this at least to the LG level

  3. Medical Leave You can check that here

  4. Marriage Leave: at most for 14 Daysa. A member who desires to get married during the service year shall be allowed to perform the marriage ceremony in any place of his/her choice.b. Any member who wishes to apply for leave for the purpose of sub-paragraph (a) above shall do so, not later than, four weeks before the date of the proposed marriage

  5. Maternity Leave during the service yeara. A married or an unmarried pregnant member shall be entitled to twelve weeks maternity leave. During this period of leave, she will be paid full monthly allowance.b. She will not, however, be entitled to the annual leave of 21days (terminal leave).

  6. Terminal Leave:


This is the area we want to dwell on, it is a leave just like any of the leave mentioned above.


Let sink that in for a while,


That means like other leave for example medical leave, or convocation leave during the leave you are still expecting to get paid, and you don't stop been a Corp member because you take a break for your convocation.


Therefore, Terminal leave which often start close to the end of your service year, don't mean you are not a Corp member.


Infact Corps members are entitled to 3-Weeks terminal leave at the end of service year. Many time after collecting certificate

Every Thing You Need to Know About CDS

Let us start by what it really is?

CDS simply means Community Development Service, This is one of the four Cardinal Programs of the National Youth Corps Service in which Corps Members contribute positively to the development of their host communities throughout the National Service Period.

Objectives Of CDS

As one of the cardinal programs of the NYSC, Community Development Service was considered among other benefits to:

  1. Impact and improve positively on the rural community life.
  2. Expose body members to various traditions and customs of the host communities
  3. Provide a forum for body members to experiment with the subject of the subject. members
  4. Harness the enormous talents and skills of the body members in rural areas
  5. Develop the spirit of entrepreneurship in the body members
  6. Explore the challenges which rural development poses and inculcates in the Nigerian Youth the ideals and capacities for leadership, endurance, selflessness, community service, national service, patriotism and creativity.
  7. Instill in corps members of the tradition of the dignity of labor and productivity.
  8. Complementary activities of government at all levels in the stride towards national development.
  9. Providing complementary service in our national development activities, by ensuring that our under-privileged population is taught basic techniques for self-help through the appropriate technology concept being promoted by NYSC.

Classification of CDS

NYSC CDS is classified into two main categories:
A National Youth Service Corps year starts with a 3 weeks orientation course and it is compulsory for all Nigeria graduates mobilised for national service. The course lasts for three (3) weeks and is designed to achieve the following objectives:

  1. Group Community Development Service (CDS Group)
  2. Personal / Individual Community Development Service (Personal / Individual CDS)

Group Community Development Service (CDS Group):

Body members must use one day per week for CDS group activities. They are not expected to attend tasks at their main duty stations (PPA) on CD days. These days are dedicated to the execution of projects and programs that will improve the living conditions of their host communities. However, these days vary depending on the state of the federation and sometimes it varies depending from CDS to CDS.
The location of this meeting is often at the Local Government Secretariat, this can also vary depending on the type of cds and the decision of member, this is while some corpers like to stay near their LGA. This meeting is also often supervised or reported to by an official of NYSC in that LGA.

The ultimate goal is to find and be in a good CDS group that will develop you

we talk next about all the types of cds group if you want to see know what personal cds is here

Good evening to everyone, trust you have a great day

We will be sharing 12 Security Tip NYSC expect every Corp Members to Note and Observe especially to New Corp member

As NYSC , CDS or Template is important so also is NYSC Safety, I mean Corp Members Safety is very important. Let us start by talking about the first one; NYSC Primary Place of Assignment Safety Tip

The primary assignment is the real platform actualizing the objectives of the scheme. This is where you spend more then 90 per cent of your service life in an environment with which you are largely unfamiliar; though in a strange terrain you have a national duty to perform which mandates you to interact with a diverse spectrum of people of different languages, cultures and customs.
Your success will thus depend on your ability to forge a cordial relationship with your new people. You must also be security conscious and stay alive. Here are some tips that can help you succeed and stay alive.
1. When reporting for your primary assignment, be attentive at reception or induction activities put together by the host communities. Such platforms present valuable information on the customs, structures, places, special landmarks, taboos etc of the host people. People and generally sensitive and passionate about their culture and you need to understand, appreciate and respect the way of life of your host. Be careful not to undermine or underestimate what the host community has passion for.
2. While ensuring that you relate generally, endeavour to identify and interact with key personalities in the community. This is a process of integrating yourself into the hearts of the community.
3. In group (where possible) or individually, the corps member(s)should visit and pay homage to the Traditional ruler, local government chairman, district police officer, commanding officers of military formation, police commissioners, directors and operatives of the state security services, heads of civil defence corps units etc. These are key players in the security of the community who should know, not only that corps members are around but what they do, where they live and how they operate.
4. Endeavour to have the phone numbers of these key players in the security subsector and maintain regular contacts with them.
5. Identify and locate key youth organizations in the community and engage in constructive, non-partisan and development-focused interaction with them. It must be realized that youths are the ones mostly employed to foment crises. But a meaningful engagement with them has the potential of opening their eyes to more beneficial ways of deploying their youthful act and energies. More importantly, it creates a bonding between the corps members and the youths of the community; a closeness that will work for the protection of the corps members in the time of trouble.
6. I group, where feasible, corps members should organized communal projects with the youths as a mentoring mechanism to positively inspire them. Such foray will create fellowship and bonding between corps members and the youths. As a consequence of this constructive relationship, the corps members are likely to be identified with and be protected rather than victimized in the time of emergency.
7. It is good for you to have a smattering or a complementary knowledge of the local language. At least it is possible for you to know how to greet and pay compliments in the local tongue. Language is a potent instrument for endearing two different people to each other. Greeting your landlord in his own language tends to make you sound less like a stranger. Apart from Positive implications for security, understanding the local language enhance the ability of the corps members to perform his duties in the community.
