The National Youth Service was established to offer civic, technical, and vocational training, personal development programs, and opportunities for voluntary services to the youth, thus contributing in a sustainable manner to national socio-economic development efforts.

National Youth Service Programmes

Phase one: Civic Training

This is the first phase of training with a duration of six months. It aims to impart to the youth knowledge, constructive attitudes and individual values that help them to become motivated, responsible youth who are able to relate positively to others including those from different cultural backgrounds.

Civic Training is currently conducted at Rietfontein Centre and is offered in partnership with Namibian Defence Force (NDF).

Phase two: National Voluntary Service

This is the second phase of the programme which has a duration of between six months and two years. Voluntarism promotes values such as a sense of belonging, solidarity, reciprocity, mutual trust, all of which contribute significantly to the youths’ capacity to contribute positively to their communities. During this phase, NYS youth are posted to serve in various projects that are of national importance around the country, providing them an opportunity to take part in national development.

Phase three: Skills Training


National Youth Service (NYS) offers accredited TVET programs at Rietfontein Centre in Otjozondupa Region. The programs are closely aligned with the labour market, which equitably provides the skills needed for accelerated development and the competencies needed by youth for productive work and increased standards of living.
