National Service Scheme (NSS) is an initiative of the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports which encourages school and college students to interact and know the community around them, understand their problems and give an effort towards their solution. To elaborate, the main objectives of NSS are:
National Service Scheme was modeled on Swami Vivekananda’s ideas of personality development and nation building through selfless service. It inspires the youth of India to become aware of and actively participate in the developmental issues of India, especially its underprivileged sections.
"Let us work hard my brethren; this is no time for sleep. On our work depends the coming of the India of the future. She is there ready waiting. Arise and awake and see her seated on her eternal throne, rejuvenated, more glorious than she ever was – this motherland of ours." Swami Vivekananda. [Complete Works, Vol 3. Pg 154.]
