The NYSC letter of request is a letter written to the management of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), requesting the posting of Corps members to your organization. Additionally, if you are a Corps member, you can write this letter to request NYSC to post you to a specific organization for your primary assignment.
In this article, I will guide you on how to effectively write a letter to request NYSC to post Corps members to your company. Furthermore, if you are a Corps member, I will explain the process of requesting NYSC to assign you to a particular organization.
Whether you are a prospective corps member or an employer seeking to be posted in a particular Place of Primary Assignment (PPA) or seeking corp members to be posted to your organization, this guide will equip you with the essential knowledge to create a compelling letter that meets all the necessary requirements.
By following the guidelines outlined in this article, you will be able to craft a professional and persuasive NYSC letter of request.
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 specific company, you can write a letter of request to ask NYSC to assign you to that organization.
However, please note that this approach may not guarantee success, as NYSC cannot guarantee that the organization has a need for your services.
To increase your chances of success, you should write the letter on behalf of the organization you desire to work for. Additionally, it’s important to obtain the signature and stamp of the head of the organization (your prospective boss) on the letter. Once completed, anyone can submit the letter to the office of the NYSC state coordinator.
Note: NYSC may not post you to an organization that is not well-known or registered with the appropriate government agency. On the other hand, if you are an employer or if you have a business where you need Corps Members to be posted, you can also write the letter.
