The National Service Scheme (NSS) was founded in Ghana in 1973. The Ghana National Service Scheme was founded by Ghanaian Constitutional Act 426 (of 1980). The system outlines its goals and establishes rules and regulations under Act 426, which mandates that all Ghanaians above the age of 18 who have completed their education must serve the country for one year.
In addition, the scheme aims to expose graduate students to real-world job experience, primarily in their field of study, which covers fields such as education, health, cooperatives, agriculture, local government, military, and rural development. As a result, as part of their commitment to the nation, all service people in the private and public sectors will have extensive exposure and actual job experience.
