Republic Act No. 9163 otherwise known as the National Program NSTP act of
2001 is a laudable law because is resolved it issue on ROTC that had been
plaguing academic institutions in the past. It also brought about a creative way by
which to utilize and maximize the dynamism and energies of the youth while they
are still in the school system. The NSTP Act of 2001 now covers three program
components namely, Reserved Officers Training Course or ROTC, Civic Welfare
Training Services or CWTS and Literary Service Training or LTS.

citizenship training.

shall promote civic consciousness among the youth and shall develop their
physical, spiritual, intellectual, and social well being. It shall inculcate in the

And finally, in pursuit of these goals the youth, the most valuable resource of the
nation shall be motivated, trained, organized and mobilized military training,
literary, civic welfare and other similar endeavors in the service of nation.
Citizenship training is emphasized. CWTS consists of programs of activities
contributing to the general welfare and betterment of the life of the members of
the country by the enhancement of the facilities especially those who devoted to
improving health, education, environment, entrepreneurship, safety, recreation
and morals of the citizenry.
Each of the NSTP components including ROTC shall be undertaken for an
