Vice President inaugurates 200 university graduates for National Youth Service

 


The Vice President, Dr. Juldeh Jalloh has inaugurated 200 university graduates who have been selected to serve in the country’s National Youth Service (NYS).
Dr. Jalloh said the National Youth Service was a very important programme that required national ownership and participation.
He said the NYS was established to enhance patriotism, promote national cohesion and help nurture and cultivate positive work ethics which he said were all fundamentals to career development and the attainment of professional goals.
He said“Government will use the NYS as a passage into formal employment, entrepreneurship and agri-business”.
Youth affairs minister, Mohamed Orman Bangura said the NYS would be recruiting 1000 National Youth Service corps for the second intake.
He said there were plans to make youth service mandatory for all university graduates.
The Commissioner of the National Youth Commission, Ngolo Katta said the government had demonstrated seriousness in its youth empowerment efforts through the Youth Service, the Free and Quality Education programme and other forms of support to the youth sector.
The 75 women and 155 men, recruited from around the country, will be trained for three weeks at the armed forces peacekeeping centre at Hastings.
The Commandant of the Peace Training Centre,Col. G.M Bangura, said they would work with the trainees to help them become agents of patriotism.
Upon graduation, the Youth Service Corps will be working in the fields of education, agriculture, community development, finance and telecommunications. They will be posted to Bombali, Bo, Kenema and Portloko districts.
