The MYPART programme seeks to produce disciplined and skilled individuals who can make meaningful contributions to society.
It is a residential three (3) year programme which acts as a form of social intervention and involves Military and Vocational Training. The National Energy Skills Center (NESC) has for many years been actively involved in the MYPART.
In June 2012 the overall administration of the programmes was shifted from the Ministry of National Security to the NESC through the then Ministry or Teritary Education and Skills Training (MTEST).
