This paper focuses on the psycho-social processes, or developmental processes, involved in participating in National Youth Service (NYS) voluntary frameworks. 

The findings advocate the notion that voluntary youth service may serve as a 'socialization agency', perhaps the very last one between youth and early adulthood. 

Due to its pro-social and pro-community characteristics, NYS frameworks tend to socialize their young volunteers as "good citizens" -- showing high levels of civic awareness and commitment to the public interest, engaging in community activities and exhibiting responsibility and empathy to others.
