It is generally agreed today that national service is compulsory for each SPM leaver. National service was first started around the year of 2004.

Time is gold. So,the youths should always rember that time is so precious for them to fill it with useful activities. Furthemore,we should not forget that by participating in national service, the youths will receive a lot of experiences. During the programme, they will be taught by many experienced teachers. Maybe, some youths from urban-background have no camping experience. They,maybe do not know how to set up fire or cooking food. So, national service provides them with those, for them-unusual activities and experiences. They can learn new things that they do not know. Other youths can also teach them. This experiences can easily gain by them as most of activities held provide them from within and outside knowledge. I believe that participating in national service is good for them because they can gain lots of knowledge and experience during the activities....
