If you are not satisfied with the monthly income that is handed to you by the federal government, here is how to earn extra income as a serving Corps member.
It is no longer news that the monthly allowance allocated to corps members by the federal government and the stipends paid by the state government(in some states) is not enough especially for those who have financial obligations.

To be comfortable as a serving corps member, one would have to skill up, harness already acquired skills, venture into a business, or continue calling home for assistance.

Many of us never realized we were adults, until the responsibilities of adulthood came knocking. For some of us, those responsibilities are not unfamiliar, because we have spent most parts of our lives fending for ourselves. While for many of us, we are approaching that phase of our lives very fast.
The Federal Government has made provisions for corps members to be covered by the health insurance in the 2018 budget. Corpers don’t need to rely on the doctors in camp. Any youth corper will be entitled to go to any hospital in the location in the local government that is covered by health insurance.
This will be implemented from the one percent of consolidated revenue fund to be dedicated to health, as stipulated by the National Health Act.
