Established in 1973, the National Service Scheme (NSS) is a Government of Ghana program under the Ministry of Education of Ghana with a National Secretariat in Accra, and offices in all administrative regions and districts across the country. The scheme is mandated to deploy a pool of skilled manpower drawn primarily from tertiary institutions to support development efforts of both the public and private sectors in Ghana. Although it is citizenry requirement for all Ghanaians who are eighteen years above, it is currently limited to, and mandatory for all Ghanaians graduating from tertiary educational institutions who are not less than eighteen years old. The original intent of deploying freshly graduating youth under the NSS arrangement, is to ensure that priority sectors of our national life are never lacking in the requisite human resources needed for development.
Overtime, the National Service Scheme has progressed beyond merely distributing graduates to public institutions and establishments. Whilst still principally providing manpower to the established institutions of our national economy, NSS is also engaged in collaboration with others in the search for answers to the teething questions surrounding the strategies of development in various aspects of our national life and the contradictions arising out of OUR heritage. Such questions include the kind of education system that is more meaningful to the majority of our people; how National Service Personnel could be integrated into the development efforts of our rural people; how technology and science can be made accessible to and manageable by ordinary people of our country; and lessons from academic training can be related as well as translated into practical actions for the good of Ghanaians
