The National Service Scheme (NSS) is a Central Sector Scheme of the Government of India, Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports, which was launched in 1969 and has now spread all over - in different universities, colleges, and schools. Over 7.4 crore students have benefitted from NSS since inception. It provides opportunities to the student youth of 11th & 12th Class to take part in various Government led community service activities & programmes.


Saint Soldier International School (SSIS) has been allotted one unit of 100 volunteers. The primary objective of the National Service Scheme is to foster in students a sense of social consciousness and responsibility. It teaches them leadership, communication, forbearance, and empathetic understanding. It helps students meet new people and fosters compassion for those in need. They feel fulfilled when assisting those who are less privileged.

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others”

-Mahatma Gandhi

The NSS activities are led by our dedicated teachers Mr. Saurabh Kumar and Mr. Manoj Sharma. Mr. Sharma has served as the NSS Program Officer since 2014, while Mr. Kumar has been an NSS Volunteer since his college days. Both of them work as a team to ensure the active participation of all students in NSS activities and programs. NSS initiatives include (but are not limited to) blood donation camps, visits to old age homes, cleanliness drives, disaster management (like flood relief operations), etc. The volunteers also participate in relevant workshops organized by CBSE to enhance the effectiveness of the NSS Program.

Students are involved in a variety of environmental, social, economic, sanitation, and hygiene-related community service assignments. In addition to participating in national youth festivals and adventure activities, selected candidates also attend the Republic Day Parade at New Delhi. Students also participate in The National Integration Camp (NIC), which is held annually for seven days. During this camp, they are educated about the rich cultural diversity of India, and national pride through knowledge of India, to integrate the nation through social service. To be eligible for an NSS certificate, each volunteer must complete 240 hours of community service over a period of two years and spend seven days at an Annual National Integration camp. The NSS certificate is given weightage for admission in colleges and universities.
