We are pleased to inform all cohorts of the NJFP list of shortlisted candidates, that the matching of fellows to their respective host organizations is currently ongoing, applicants are to exercise more patience as the process is hectic and tiring.
The matching of both the second, third, and subsequent batches of fellows is currently in progress, a visit to NJFP/UNDP head office in Abuja shows staff working tirelessly (day and night) to match fellows to their host organizations of interest.
While the process is going on, applicants are encouraged to stay focused, in no distant time, all the 20,000 young graduattes will be fully matched and engaged.

How to Register WITH A Host Organization
A significant challenge faced by NJFP is the matching of fellows with host organizations close to the fellow’s domain, this process could be tiring because host organizations are limited and some are not willing to be engaged with NJFP without incentive and logistic
But NJFP has addressed this issue, as contained in the online meeting held on the 20th of October 2022
“No cohort is to remit any part of his/her allowance to their host organization, any organization that demands for such should be reported and would be punished accordingly”
“ Host organizations won’t be paid during the program, they are to benefit a the cohorts is part of their workforce”- NJFP virtual meeting summary held on 20th
Fellows and Cohorts are advised to encourage host organizations to register with NJFP for a seamless Matching process. If you are an applicant of NJFP, encourage your host companies to register with NJFP, as NJFP cannot match you directly with organizations that are not registered
Host organizations from Agencies, Parastatals, departments, Ministries, and Private organizations are welcome. It is worth noting that, private sectors are more welcome in the NJFP, this is where skills emanate.
