NSTP team meets NSTP students for SY 2018-2019

With almost 700 National Service Training Program (NSTP) students, there were two modes of delivery developed for the NSTP: a classroom and seminar-type for the first semester of SY 2018-2019. With this, there are two clusters made for the program. For weekdays, the first cluster comprises of the College of Health Sciences (CHS) and BS Accountancy (BSA) while for Saturdays, the second cluster comprises of the College of Business Management and Accountancy (CBMA) except BSA, the College of Engineering, Architecture, and Fine Arts (CEAFA), and the College of Arts, Sciences, and Education (CASE).

The first NSTP1 class was conducted on June 23, 2018. It was scheduled from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm at UST-Legazpi Dome. The NSTP facilitators and a number of volunteers came ahead of time to facilitate the venue, sound system, and the students’ attendance.

The class started at exactly 9:00 am. Ms. Karen B. Lladones, director of the Center for Community Involvement (CCI), spearheaded the short introduction of NSTP1, the importance and composition of NSTP, and the people who will play an important role in guiding them towards passing the program. The facilitators, Mr. Glenn Balberan, Ms. Jean Pauline Trilles, Mr. Jomel Carullo, Ms. Jazzie Tan and Mr. James Ramil Gojar, Ms. Hazel Bermundo, together with the Anduyog volunteers got the chance to introduce themselves to the students and welcome them to the program.

To energize the students, Ms. Trilles together with Mr. Balberan facilitated a short game entitled “Where You Belong-Four Corners”. The students were given a chance to get to know themselves even more and meet new acquaintances. After the activity, an AVP made by the former CEAFA NSTP students was played to show their community experience as vital part of the program. They had the chance to have a look at the importance of community exposure and service.

The students were oriented about the VMOs, programs and services, partner communities of the CCI to which NSTP is anchored and a little background of its history.

To encourage the active participation of the students before orienting them about what the NSTP Law is all about, the students were divided into 42 groups comprising 10 members each. Ms. Hazel Bermundo, one of the NSTP facilitators, was the game master of ‘Kahoot” – an online game platform designed purely for educational purpose. The game included a short introduction of NSTP. The game was like a pre-test to know their level of understanding about the salient points in NSTP Law. The NSTP students used the internet router provided by the ETC while some accessed to their own mobile data. The students were very active and supported each other during the game, but eventually, five groups made it to the top. However, only the top 3 were considered the final winners. Each group was recognized for their team effort and they will receive next week their well-deserved prize.

To further give the students more ideas about NSTP, Ms. Lladones discussed the important pointers in the development of NSTP such as NSTP law, NSTP components, history, and many more. From time to time, students were asked questions related to the discussion. It can be noted that majority of the students has some knowledge about the law.

NSTP is a program aimed at enhancing the civic consciousness and defense preparedness in the youth by developing the ethics of service and patriotism while undergoing training in any of the three program components specifically designed to enhance the youth’s active contribution to the general welfare. UST-Legazpi is offering only two program components namely: Civic Welfare Training Service (CWTS) and Literacy Training Service (LTS).

The advent of RA 9163 otherwise known as the National Service Training Program Law mandated all higher education institutions (HEIs) to implement the NSTP as part of the curricular offerings and as a requirement for a baccalaureate degree with each student covered to earn the necessary six (6) units or three (3) units per semester. The implementation began in 2002.
