If given a chance to make history,


what would you add to the evolution
of the NSTP Law?
If

I were given a chance to make history


I would add to the evolution of NSTP
Law a program wherein its objective is
to teach out-of-school youths, to have
an interaction with the lower class of
people in the society for us to be able
know the situation they are in.

PROGRAM COMPONENTS OF
NSTP
1. Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC)
- designed to provide military training to
tertiary level students in order to motivate,
train, organize and mobilize them for national
defense preparedness.
It can benefit the society because the
students who took ROTC would be
knowledgeable about military and they can
be of help if the society is in need of military.

PROGRAM COMPONENTS OF
NSTP
2. Literacy Training Service (LTS)
- designed to train students to teach literacy
and numeracy skills to school children, outof-school youth and other segments of
society in need of their services.
It can benefit the society because most
out-of-school youths would know how to
write and read or other basic things we
learn in school.

PROGRAM COMPONENTS OF
NSTP
3. Civic Welfare Training Service (CWTS)
- refers to activities contributory to the
general welfare and the betterment of life
for the members of the community or the
enhancement of facilities.
It can benefit the different communities
in the country by providing livelihood
programs and the likes.

Given the current situation of our country,


what would be the role of youth as far as
community development is concerned?
The

role of the youth would be to help in


the betterment of our society with these
programs. And they would be the one to
encourage citizens about different
program in improving our country.
