The Nigerian Students and Youth Corps (NS&YC) Discount Card initiative was launched on the 21st of March, 2016 by the Speaker of Nigeria’s House of Representatives and the Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).


The Nigerian Students and Youth Corps (NS&YC) Discount Card is a card system that entitles all enrolled Nigerian students and national youth corps to access discounts on the prices of products and services across Nigeria.

The aim of the NS&YC Discount Card is to initiate a Systemic Institutional Support Platform as a Social Safety Net to help alleviate these current challenges and improve the living conditions of Nigerian Students and NYSC members.


Members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), National Association of Polytechnic Students (NAPS) and the National Association of Colleges of Education Students (NACES) were all in attendance and they earlier endorsed the initiative believing strongly that the initiative will affect their lives in a positive way.
