It renders services in the area of educational, vocational, social and personal counselling. These varied opportunities are geared and focused proactively on producing citizens who are equipped adequately for the world of work.

It equally promotes healthy mental well being by sensitization through workshops, lectures and retreats on social vices like incidences of cultism, Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, drug-addiction, rape, alcoholism, smoking, etc. The one-on-one counselling environmental facilitates students’ access to assistance whenever they are troubled. This ultimately helps in producing students whose abilities and aspirations are well coordinated for job placement.
