We’ve already seen on this platform that one of the major objectives of an NYSC CDS group is to embark on a CDS project during the course of their service year that will benefit the community they find themselves. We’ve equally seen how bulk SMS can be used to advertise such projects. Once completed though, next comes project launching.
One of the major objectives of any administration of an NYSC CDS group is to embark on a CDS project that will benefit the community they find themselves. In fact, that is exactly the aim of the NYSC CDS scheme.
Based on one of the most important aim of the NYSC scheme, for serving Corp members to provide worthwhile service to the community they are, most of the Community Development Service(CDS) groups have as part of their service, sensitization to the public on various important matters.
It is a thing of great joy to successfully complete the National Youth Service year for thousands of Corp members on their passing out parade day. No more emergency headcounts, no more full khaki every CDS and Clearance day, no more CDS and the various challenges posed by the service year. Above all, the satisfaction that you have successfully served your fatherland is there and the much coveted discharge certificate. Who says you do not deserve a party?
A person, group or organization who has access to bulk SMS service at any chosen time can be said to have the world on her palms and rightly so. Bulk SMS is an effective communication tool for arranging meetings, pass out reminders and the most interesting part; get a full house for a house party or gathering in no time.
The executives of any organization or association as the case may be, have a massive role to play towards ensuring the lasting and enduring success of the association. In order for them to carry out these roles successfully, unity is essential within the group. That is why regular and effective internal communications is a necessity.
It is not a secret that the National Youth Service Year can be a very challenging and tasking year for a youth Corp member. Challenges of living in a completely different place, learning new cultures and even economic challenge that the stipulated monthly allowance can’t obviously take care of. An additional source of income becomes a necessity.
In the exact words of American Computer Programmer, Grace Murray Hopper, “Leadership is a two way street, loyalty up and loyalty down. Respect for one’s superiors and care for one’s crew”. In this brief statement, she underlined the importance of keeping communication open between all parties in any organization.
Apart from the major duties that the NYSC CDS groups holds with regard to rendering effective service to the community where the youth Corp members are, the CDS group equally serves as a channel of communication to the Corp members belonging in such groups.
