Established on 22nd May 1973, the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Programme in Nigeria is a compulsory 1-year National exercise for Nigerian youth graduates.


NYSC is a program established by the Nigerian government to engage Nigerian graduates in nation-building and development.

Nigerian graduates (from universities, polytechnics, and other institutions) under the age of 30 are mobilized to a state other than their home state to contribute to national development.

The exercise begins with a 21-day camp training before corp members are assigned to various places of primary assignment (PPAs) throughout the state.
