NYC head backs return of ROTC
by Joseph B. Zambrano / PIA

The National Youth Commission (NYC) supports the move to bring back the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) to prepare the youth to respond to emergencies and in securing the country.

Usec. Ronald Gian Cardema, NYC chairperson and chief executive officer, said he supports the call of President Rodrigo Duterte for the restoration of the ROTC program to boost the strength of the Armed Forces of the Philippines Reserve Force and in preparation for typhoons, earthquakes, and other national emergencies in the country.

The restoration of ROTC would also “instill patriotism” and “love of country among our youth.”

“In our neighboring countries like Singapore and South Korea, the youth are mandated to give military service and we can see that they have a strong country, a developed nation,” Cardema said.

Celebrity and AFP reservist Private Matteo Guidicelli, one of the resource speakers during the Sanguniang Kabataan (SK) National Convention in Baguio, encouraged youth leaders and other elected SK officials to be part of nation-building and join the Reserve Command.

“I got associated and interested with the AFP on how they help in the community and society so I enlisted in the Army Reserve Command to do my part as a Filipino citizen,” Guidicelli said.   The reserve force is a voluntary service to the country especially in times of emergencies and calamities, he added.

The NYC is a government agency that addresses issues surrounding the Filipino youth. The policymaking body on youth affairs, it coordinates and implements programs designed to help the youth be more aware of the issues in the country.
