PRIMARY ASSIGNMENT: At the end of the orientation, Corps members are posted to their place of primary assignment. While the NYSC Management takes into consideration the areas of specialization of Corps members carrying out the posting exercise, emphasis is placed in rural posting in the areas of Agriculture, Health, Education and Infrastructure.
It is expected that Corps members should accept their posting and be agents of change contributing towards the development of their host communities.
COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT SERVICE: The Community Development Service (CDS) is aimed at harnessing the skills, creativity and innovativeness of Corps members. Corps members are expected to identify the needs of their host communities and mobilise members of their host communities to embark on the projects.
Through this programme, many Corps members were able to construct toilets, health care centres, classroom blocks, market stalls, culverts etc. They had also carried out projects like HIV sensitization, adult literacy campaign, extra-mural classes for students, road safety campaign etc.
Corps members participate actively in the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) through the War Against Poverty (WAP) programme of the scheme.
At the end of the service year (usually at the 12th month) corps members are gathered in their respective zones for assessment of the service year and de-briefing. It is the period when Corps members present their final clearance letters from their employers and submit same to their Zonal/ Local Government Inspectors.
Parade rehearsals are conducted in readiness for the passing-out ceremony which is usually presided over by the Executive Governor of the State. During the ceremony, those with outstanding performance during the service year are given State Honours Award.
For a Corps member to merit an award, he/she must be outstanding in the orientation course, primary assignment, community development service and winding –up exercise.
