    Pros

    The program provide youth corps members with opportunity to integrate with people of different culture and background.it also exposes them to the reality of life in the country.

    Cons

    The program recently seems to have lost his intended objectives because of insecurity in the country which keeps some youths away from some region of the country.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    officials should always empathize with the youth corps incase of challenges. The program should also give room for youths to be entrepreneur to tackle unemployment ravaging the country.
