N-Power is a Nigerian government social investment scheme designed to address the issue of youth unemployment. The program was launched in 2016 and has since enrolled over 500,000 beneficiaries. N-Power provides unemployed youths with temporary employment opportunities in the public sector, while also providing them with skills training and development.
N-Power is divided into two streams: Graduate and Non-Graduate. The Graduate stream is for unemployed graduates of Nigerian tertiary institutions, while the Non-Graduate stream is for unemployed youths who have not attended tertiary institutions.
The N-Power Batch C program was launched in 2020 and has two streams: Stream 1 and Stream 2. Stream 1 beneficiaries began their service in December 2020, while Stream 2 beneficiaries began their service in August 2021.
