The Government of Sierra Leone has sent a high-powered team to Nigeria to understudy the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme.
The delegation, which is being headed by the country’s Presidential Adviser on Youth, Dr. Sheku G. Kamara, was at the NYSC National Directorate Headquarters yesterday to interact with the Management team.
Kamara said the purpose of the visit was to enable Sierra Leone learn from Nigeria’s experience to enable it improve its own National Youth Service.
“We researched a lot to learn from all countries that have voluntary youth services after graduation from University, and I am proud to say Nigeria emerged from our research as the best example in Africa.
“The purpose of this study tour is to find out what have been your successes, what have been your challenges, and what we should look for to make ours a strong one,” he added.
The Sierra Leonean team is also scheduled to visit some Orientation camps in the country for on-the-spot monitoring of activities during the on-going 2017 Batch ‘A’ Orientation course.
