Collaboration for Youth Empowerment

The NSS is no longer just about deploying service personnel to institutions; Its focus has evolved to empower young talents with the professional skills and competencies they need to thrive in today’s job market.


It’s about equipping young people with the tools to gain meaningful employment or become self-employed for the development of Ghana.

During the signing ceremony, the Chief Executive for NSS emphasized the importance of the collaboration in addressing the challenges the youth face.

He told the media after the ceremony that together with the British Council Ghana and NYA, they are embarking on a mission to make the NSS more meaningful and impactful.

“We are nurturing critical thinking and problem-solving skills among our service personnel, as these skills are invaluable in their journey towards a bright future.”

Beyond Employment: Embracing Climate Action

“But our mission doesn’t stop at employment. We’re exploring ways to involve our youth in climate change activities, recognizing their pivotal role in shaping a sustainable future. It’s about empowering them with a holistic approach to life and work.

I firmly believe that empowering young people is not merely a goal; it’s a responsibility, a duty, and an investment in a brighter and more prosperous future for Ghana. As the Executive Director of the NSS, I’m committed to this mission with my heart and soul.

For those who want to know more about the work we’re doing, I encourage you to explore our three cardinal projects: Skills Towards Employability and Productivity (STEP), the National Youth Volunteers Programme (NYVP), and Safeguarding the Teenage Girl (STG) project. These initiatives are integral to our vision for a better tomorrow.

Together, with our dedicated partners and the unwavering support of our youth, we are paving the way for a brighter, more empowered Ghana. “
