How To Apply For National Youth Service Corps, NYSC Redeployment And Relocation.

Here is steps on how to apply for National Youth Service Corps, NYSC relocation and redeployment. NYSC redeployment and Relocation of National Youth Service Corps, NYSC members is a thing that is open to any NYSC Corp member.

NYSC has made it possible for corp member who has genuine reasons for redeployment and not being able to in the state posted, to request for a change of state.

And that’s exactly what is called “NYSC Redeployment/Relocation”. NOTE your reasons must be reasonable and genuine.

The major aim of the NYSC is to enable youths move out entirely from their cultural environment to mix with people of other cultural heritage.

But youths of today wants to serve in their own desired state. Therefore they are now fond of forming different lies and assumptions.

Because of this, NYSC has agreed and stated 3 reason to which a corps member can apply for and be granted relocation:

Marital Reasons:
This option is only available for married female corpers who are willing to be redeployed to the sate where their husband and family resides. Before you can be considered on marital ground, you must provide the following:
Your marriage certificate
Evidence of change of name in any of the National Newspapers
A letter from your husband’s office to prove that he really resides there and work there.
A hand-written application letter (you are going to see a sample of this at the end of this post)
A relocation form which is going to be given to you on camp

Security Reasons:
Some states are presently facing serious security challenges. Therefore, NYSC had made a provision for any corp member who wants to be excluded from serving in such states.

States like Borno, Yobe, Adamawa, Gombe and some of the northern states are really danger zones for corp members.

Those states are presently not save for corp members to serve because of the Boko-haram insurgency. Any corper serving there are doing so at their own risk.

The only requirement to apply for relocation in such case is filling the relocation form. If you refuse to fill the relocation form when others are doing so, you will definitely not be relocated; you will have to serve in the state.

Medical Reasons:
If as a corp member, you are having medical problem that could pose a threat to your life in the environment you have been posted, you have the right to apply for redeployment based on medical ground.

But the medical issues must be a reasonable and to some extent, life threatening before your application can be considered.

You can not say you don’t want to be posted to the north because you do have menstrual pain”. Nobody will listen to you. And mind you, you are still going to face an interview before approval of your application.
If the medical reason is genuine, all you will need to apply are:
A genuine medical report/certificate from your institution’s medical center or from a recognized general hospital (report or certificate from private hospitals may not be considered).

A hand-written application letter (you are going to see a sample of this at the end of this post)
A relocation form which is going to be given to you on camp.

We only have two ways On How which you can apply for Relocation and you will get approved.

1. Applying on Camp: One of the major ways, and of course, the initial way of applying for Nysc Relocation and Redeployment is applying for it on camp.

During the 21 days Orientation course on camp, interested corp members will be given the opportunity to apply for Relocation at the 2nd week on camp.

A form will be given out to any interested corper to fill. This form will require, among other things, the corper to state the reason he/she wants a relocation and also give reasonable evidences to back up any excuse given. Together with the form, you will also be asked to submit an application letter.

2. Applying Online After Camp: Before, it’s very difficult or rather impossible to get a Relocation approval after camping is over. But now, it has being made possible and easier to apply for relocating by simply allowing corp members to apply online even after camp is over.
