All you need know about personal community development service. Good day to all prospective and serving corps members
It stroke me today as so many of my friends (corpers) were asking me on how to engage in National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) personal Community Development Service (CDS) because they also want to affect life positively as corps members. This gave me the passion to also share.
Some do it because of the award (state and presidential honor), some do it because of the joy in it as they change life(s), but whatever is your reason(s), these are the procedures to follow.
1. Project Title:
You must have carried out investigation on what project you want to do and where you want to do it. But it is important to note these when choosing your project because where you carried out your project matters alot. E.g A corps member that dug a bore hole in a slum (environment with poor people) will be highly recognized and valued than the one that dug similar bore hole in the government house etc. Secondly you should give the people what they need, not what they don't need at that moment e.g do not give an hungry man cloth to wear, instead you should give him food because at that moment, he/she needs food to survive before clothing.
2. Project Analysis
By now you must have known the project you want to carry out. The analysis includes;
(i) the cost
(iii) sponsor (only if you have any at that moment)
(iv) starting date and closing date (at which the project is expected to end).
3. Project Approval
The project approval is usually given by the NYSC. It is important you get it because your name and NYSC number will be written on it and it is required you attach it to any of your solicitation letters. In addition to that, it is only way your project will be documented by NYSC for any reward or recognition. And to get it, you must apply for it, and to apply for it, you will have to write a letter to NYSC following all the necessary chain of command and you will be required to attach your project analysis on that letter of request for approval letter.
NOW, you need two things from me
- Sample of of the letter to request for project approval from nysc. Look below for d sample
- Project analysis that you will attach to the letter 1 above. That's all you need to kick-start your project. Send me your email to forward the sample to you (free of charge) because its in diagrammatic form (with horizontal and vertical lines) as such I always find it difficult to past it for people. If you receive it all you need to do is to substitute, no stress.
