National Youth Service (NYS) Opens Application Portal for Seventh Batch Enrolment In a bid to support youth empowerment and employment opportunities, the National Youth Service (NYS) reopened its application portal on 15th June 2024.

The reopening of the application portal marks the commencement of another application process for graduates interested in joining the seventh(7th) batch of the NYS program, set to be called up for recruitment, training, and deployment in December 2024/25.

The NYS initiative is designed to empower young Sierra Leonean graduates between the ages of 18 and 35 to equip them with the necessary skills for a smooth transition into the country’s competitive job market. Additionally, the program focuses on personal skills development, fostering both personal growth and national development.

Since its inception in 2018, the National Youth Service has made significant strides in recruiting, training, and providing internships to young graduates. With over 1,000 success stories of full-time employment in both the public and private sectors, the NYS has emerged as a vital tool for youth employment in Sierra Leone. The application portal will remain open up to October 31, 2024.
