The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) is a scheme for graduates from various Nigerian tertiary institutions, as such one would expect the NYSC to be made up of properly educated young men and women.
However, it is sad to note that this is not always the case. There have been reports of cases where members of the corps behaved in manner that could be termed disgraceful. While this is not always the case, a recent Facebook post shows that it still happens.

Many have said it would have been better if he wrote in his native language, than very bad English language.

However, we have had some inspiring NYSC members. A good example is that of Cynthia Eseosa Eghe-Nova who now has her name etched in gold in Abuja.
NAIJ.com reported that charity is like a lifestyle for Cynthia, before she renovated the classrooms of the school where she was serving, she had donated 10 mattresses, medications and conducted free medical check-ups for an Internally Displaced Persons Camp in Gurku, Mararaba in Nasarawa state.
She also conducted skill acquisition training on cake baking and decoration for students of Government Day Secondary School in Bwari, Abuja.
NAIJ.com also has a video of some other inspiring NYSC members:
