Quality Assessment of the Implementation of National Service Training Program among HEIs in Cagayan De Oro City

Amor Y. Mendoza



As enshrined in the 1987 Philippine Constitution, Filipinos are duty-bound to protect their country and, as such, they are to undergo service programs. The Constitution also prescribes the involvement of  the young generation in community affairs in order to secure the nation. As stipulated in Art II, Sec. 3, “The State recognizes the vital role of the youth in nation-building and shall promote and protect their physical, moral, spiritual, intellectual, and social well-being. It shall inculcate in the youth patriotism and nationalism, and encourage their involvement in public and civic affairs.” These tenets of the Constitution lend support to the youth in the promotion of general welfare in pursuit of charting the country’s development roadmap - an affirmation that the youth remains the bastion of hope for the years ahead.
