Philippine Constitution, made a legislation through the passage of Republic Act

a strong republic, invoking gender equality and development through the inclusion
of female students in national service training. As such, it aims to develop the
youth to become civic or military leaders and volunteers through a modified, restructured and reinforced training package which includes leaders and volunteers
who could be called upon by the nation in instances that will warrant their services,
especially in the event of disasters or emergencies.
NSTP as a form of citizenship training, provides the students the opportunity
to demonstrate practical and functional knowledge as well as life skills, particularly
problem-solving and decision-making.
