Discipline: Social Sciences



The study aimed to determine the perceived impact of National Service Training Program (NSTP-LTS) on the behavioral formation of the first-year education students of Pamantasan ng Cabuyao. This study employed a descriptive research design method using questionnaires as its principal tool. The study’s respondents were the 231 first-year education students of Pamantasan ng Cabuyao enrolled in the Academic Year 2022-2023. Data were treated statistically using weighted mean and Pearson r. The study’s findings suggest that NSTP-LTS significantly impacts education students regarding self-improvement, performance, and community involvement. Furthermore, the student’s level of behavioral formation is much observed. A significant relationship was noted in the perceived impact of National Service Training Program – LTS on the behavioral appearance of the students. It was therefore concluded that the higher the perceived impact of the students on NSTP–LTS, the more behavioral formation of the students is observed. The NSTP Coordinator and instructors should implement activities promoting experiential learning to increase student community involvement.
