Update: The OYES 2018 application has closed. We’ll update you when the portal reopens.
OYES 2018 has opened for new applications, announcement on the official job application portal oyes.org.ng says.
Osun State Governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, has approved the recruitment of another batch of cadets for the year 2018-202.
The news was announced on the official twitter handle of the OYES @OYESHQ on Tuesday.
The recruitment portal started accepting fresh application on Wednesday 8th August, 2018.
The 2018 recruitment will see another batch of 20,000 unemployed youths enlisted into the scheme.
It began in 2011, opening doors of opportunities for cadets as they have recorded successes in all sectors of the economy.
Components of OYES Programme:
- Traffic Marshals,
- Green Marshals,
- Public sanitation,
- Public Works Brigade,
- Green Gang,
- Osun Sheriff Corps,
- Osun Paramedics,
- Sanitation Czars and Teachers Corps and are thereafter deployed to productive services in these identified areas of our socio-economic life.
Other states in Nigeria have borrowed the creativity and the model of the programme to empower their youths.
It is also believed that N-power, Nigeria’s government youth empowerment programme, was designed using the OYES template.
N-power beneficiaries, and former OYES cadets are not qualified to apply.
