In the event that the state will need people for its civic and literacy activities, it will merely utilize the personnel of the reserve force, the student volunteers the NSTP-CWTS and the NSTP-LTS has produced. As with the need of the Armed Forces for additional force for its defense campaigns, it can easily use its body of reservists in the Reserve Command.

Contribution of students to our society Student period is the formative period in ones life. A student must develop all such qualities in him during this period as enable him to lead a successful life. All activities are good if one remains within reasonable limits. Students should therefore, pay attention to their studies. In India, education signified knowledge of the self. Education meant character building and drawing out the best in each individual. Education and learning has always been everything to do with life and living. Education enabled the student to realize within himself the strength and freedom to take control of his life without fear. The aim of such education was to bring out the best abilities in every individual, family, community and the society, in offer for the service of the land and the people. When students have been treated with respect, they have lived up to it and displayed a strong sense of responsibility. On being recognized as individuals, they have displayed a readiness to work for change within the existing system rather than by dropping out of it. For all round development of a student, it is essential that ways for partaking in extracurricular activities be available. It is in this view that extracurricular activities conducted regularly to enable students to discover and hone their skills in fields that are not academic in nature. Technical activities are also held on a regular basis to promote excellence in technical skills among the student body. These activities are completely organized by the student community. Education is an integrated enterprise. Unfortunately the society at large as well as the government looks at it in a segmented way _ Elementary education, secondary education, Higher education, general education, technical education, vocational education etc. First role is to provide education for those who fall within its direct fold. The second role is to guide the functionaries and planners of those. From the day we were all born we watched and observed everything on front of us. We watched our family, classmates, television, Internet and everybody around us. Role models have a great affect in our society. A role model must have the ability to show leadership, planned out ideas, and able to make a difference in the society. Role models have a dramatic affect on future generation of young minds. The influences of a role models have on young people are great. The most important part of being a role model is to be positive and responsible show good moral standing because young people are relying on role models today. A role model must possess the ability to show leadership. Role models showing leadership will greatly influence young peoples mind by showing them positive things. For example role models in school like the upperclassmen will show leadership to their fellow underclassmen by leading them to the right decisions to showing them strategy to accomplish their goal of succeeding in school or they could lead them to be the future role models for the

next generation of students. In other words role models that show leadership will lead to positive influence. Another similar example of how role models show leadership is teachers. Teachers teach students to become productive in their studies by teaching students what they have learned in the past. When teachers teach students about their own knowledge the help students become better and smarter. In other words teachers show leadership by teaching students the information they have learned and this leads to positive influence. A role model must possess an ability to plan out ideas. Role models that plan out ideas are able to show young people the importance of being able to think and understand. For example parents are great at showing the ability to plan out ideas by planning ahead for their children future. Young people are often viewed as lacking the skills needed to become part of the political process. These perceptions are often backed by popular theories on childhood development and adolescence, many of which define youth as social group that is in the stage of becoming adults. Young people are the last group we are allowed to systematically exclude. young people are not afforded the opportunities to share power with adults in part because they are viewed as lacking the requisite skills. Consequently, they are not invited to the table. The very idea of youth citizenship young people participating as equals is a stretch for many adults. The irony is, however, that once at the table, young people are often viewed as a threat to adult power. Rather than work with young people to build the skills, adults either abdicate power or work to control it. This tendency to exclude young people has been wellsubstantiated in international Therefore youthfulness has become a major justification for excluding young people from decision making. It is also important to emphasize that these ideas are also present all major social institutions; from the family, the school, the community; religious institutions etc. It is not a surprise that there are not expectations and processes that facilitate the political participation of young people within their communities as well as at the national level. One of the more frequently used justifications excluding young people is the entrenched myth of youth apathy - young people are frequently portrayed as lacking motivation to become involved. This myth is captured most aptly in the media hype about Generation X syndrome which describes young people as a socially inert, self-absorbed group with little or no interest in the political process.
