The National Service Scheme (NSS) is a Central Scheme of Government of India. It is a voluntary association that provides youth across educational institutions the opportunity to take part in government led community service activities and programmes. The central aim of the NSS is to provide hands on experience to young students in delivering community service.
With its strong commitment to the NSS motto ‘Not Me, But You’, the NSS unit of Delhi College of Arts & Commerce (NSS-DCAC) strives to instil among its volunteers the value of democratic living, equality of opportunity and selfless service towards those less privileged than themselves. NSS- DCAC aims to develop in its volunteer’s dedication towards community service based on a sense of social justice and welfare, thereby preparing them to become agents of social change.
All NSS volunteers who serve NSS for at least 2 years and complete 240 hours of work are entitled to a certificate from the Vice-Chancellor and the Programme Coordinator, University of Delhi.
