Nysc letter of request

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;

  1. Corps member asking NYSC to post/re-post them to a particular Place of Primary Assignment (PPA).

  2. 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.

NYSC request letter format

If any organization in Nigeria is interested in hiring a corps member, they have to write an official letter to the NYSC management. And that is the only way to use corps members in your work place.

The NYSC request letter should meet the following requirements;

  1. Use formal language,

  2. Correct English grammar and spellings,

  3. Make the body of letter short,

  4. Use persuasive writing style,

  5. Be clear, and go straight to the point,

  6. Use A4 paper letter size.

If your letter meet the above requirements, then expect reply from NYSC in a very short time.

Follow the guide below;

  1. Opening paragraph: Introduce your company or organization in one sentence. Then use two more sentences to state your request for Corps member (s) that you want and also state why you are asking for corps member (s).

  2. Closing paragraph: Since you expect a response from NYSC, try to be polite as much as you can in your call to action. Also, provide a date by which you expect to receive a reply.
