There have been several legal precedents for the National Service Training Program (NHP) Act, 2001. In 1980, it issued Executive Order No. 1706, or the National Service Act, which made national service compulsory for Filipino citizens.

The researcher uses community participatory action research (CBPAR), to be more precise, the Targeted Group Discussion (FGD) model, to know exactly the existing situations and problems of the community. The communities of Ipo Dam Water Shed, Norzagaray, Bulacan, DLSAU-NSTP and NSTP students and deNR are more focused on economic security, one of the elements of sustainable community, i.e. the education and livelihood program needed to create and achieve a sustainable community. Therefore, this research is based solely on active collaboration between the researcher, university, government, institutions or group of people, especially the community in the respective field. By helping together, we provide a solution to the needs of the community and give the best possible programs and projects, that is, giving them the quality education and noble livelihood program that would benefit people to achieve a sustainable community. “Program Component” – means the service components of the NSTP listed in section 4 of this Act.
