NYS Host the 8th Intake Pass-Out Parade

Wednesday, 18 the February 2015 was yet another exciting chapter added into the history book of the National Youth Service as the Service witnessed the Pass-Out Parade of the 8th Intake.

Four hundred and ten (410) youth who were recruited during the 8th intake in 2014 completed their Civic training at Henties Bay in the Erongo Region.

Delivering the keynote address on behalf of His Excellency Dr. Hifikepunye Pohamba, President of the Republic of Namibia was Dr. Albert Kawana, Minister of Presidential Affairs. In his address, the President emphasized the important role that the National Youth Service in playing amongst the Namibian youth. The President noted that in order for us to develop our country and make Namibia more competitive in the world economy, it is imperative that the country produce graduates with relevant skills and competencies.

The President further noted that the delivery of the training programmes at the National Youth Service and other training institutions should be guided by the country’s national policies and programmes such as the National Human Resources Development Plan 2010-2015, the National Development Plans (NDP’s) and the long term national development strategy, Vision 2030.

The President also called upon all relevant stakeholders in the education sector and the private sector to undertake a comprehensive labour market research in order to ensure that there are no mismatches between the training programmes and the demands of the labour market.

Congratulating the youth on their achievement, the President called upon the youth to make use of services offered by institutions such as Agribank, the Development Bank of Namibia, the SME Bank and other financial institutions to secure financing for their business ventures and create jobs. He further urged the youth to live up to the values of the National Youth Service as this will enable them to overcome many challenges facing the youth today.

The graduating youth will be deployed to projects of national importance across the country to carry out their voluntary service.
