National Service Training Program

The Institution has always valued the youth, recognizing their potential as nation-builders, capable of contributing to the transformation of the nation.  To help them find their roles and their mission for our country, the Institution incorporates the concepts and principles of the NSTP of the Republic of the Philippines; a commitment to participate in molding the Filipino youth of today, who are the hope of the nation.

NSTP is a program aimed at enhancing civic consciousness and defense preparedness in the youth by developing the ethics of service and patriotism.  The students shall undergo training in the NSTP component program offered by the DLSMHSI, the Civic Welfare Training Service (CWTS).   In the same way as the other two components, namely the Reserve Officers’ Training Corp (ROTC) and the Literacy Training Service (LTS), the CWTS at the DLSMHSI is designed to enhance the youth’s active contribution to the general welfare of the country (Section 3c, RA 9163).

Graduates of the NSTP shall form the group of volunteers for the School-Based National Service Reserve Corps (SBNSRC) who shall be promoters of volunteerism and be advocates of community projects and programs that will help address the identified needs of the adopted and partner communities.
