NYSC letter of request is a letter you write to the management of National Youth Service Corps asking them to post Corps members to your organization.
But if you are a corps member, you can equally write this letter to ask NYSC to post you to a particular organization for primary assignment.
So, in this article, I will show you how to write a letter to ask NYSC to post Corps members to your company. Or to ask NYSC to post you to a particular organization if you are a Corps member.
So, this topic covers the following two major points;
- Corps member asking NYSC to post/re-post them to a particular Place of Primary Assignment (PPA).
Employer or Manager asking NYSC to post Corps Members to their organization.
As a Corps member, if you wish to serve in a particular company, you can write a letter of request to ask NYSC to post you to that organization.
Please note that this may not work if you are a corps member asking NYSC to post you to a particular organization. This is because NYSC is not sure if the organization really need your service.
So, to make sure it works, all you need to do is to write the letter on behalf of the organzation that you want to work for. After then ask the head of the organization (your prospective boss) to sign and stamp the letter. Then anybody can submit the letter to the office of NYSC state coordinator.
Note: NYSC may not post you to an organization that is not well known or registered with the appropriate government agency.
In the other hand if you are an employer or if you have a business that you need Corps Members to be posted to your company, you can also write the letter.
