I.Get to Know YBAM National Service Programme Dharma Class Project

Ever since the appointment as the official coordinating body of the National Service (NS)Programme Dharma Class, YBAM have dispatched large number of Dharma speakers to nearly 80 camp sites throughout the country. Through this project, NS Buddhist participants are at least exposed to 20 to 40 hours of In-Camp and Out Camp Dharma classes

The NS Dharma Class is a long term project that requires excessive manpower and financial expenses which includes:
- To coordinate the Dharma Classes at both In-Camp and Out-Camp sites
- To reprint the “What Buddhists Believe”, authored by the late Chief Ven. K Sri Dhammananda as the main reference for all NS Buddhist participants as well as to purchase small gifts for distribution.
- To train and coordinate Dharma speakers involved in the project as well as the Buddhist Organisations that receive the NS participants every weekend.
- To compile and publish the Dharma Studies texts, as well as other supporting materials.
- To compile NS participants' particulars and to keep in touch with the alumni to encourage them to continue learning Dharma.

As such, we appeal for the financial support from the public to ensure the project continues benefiting tens of thousand of Buddhist teenagers in the NS Camps throughout the country.

Get to Know More about YBAM National Service Programme Dharma Class Project

The National Service was initiated by the Malaysian government in 2004. On 27th July 2005,YBAM was appointed by the Jabatan Latihan Khidmat Negara (National Service Training Department or JLKN) as the official coordinating body for NS Out-Camp Buddhist activities.

Since then YBAM has been arranging NS Buddhist participants to their nearest Buddhist Organisations to participate in religious activities and to reinforce their Buddhist belief.

On 28th April 2006, YBAM was appointed by the JLKN as the official coordinating body for the NS In-Camp Dharma classes. Ever since this appointment, YBAM had been working untiringly to arrange Dharma speakers to conduct Dharma classes in NS camps nationwide. As part of the efforts to equip the NS Dharma speakers with necessary teaching skills,YBAM had compiled the NS Buddhist syllabus together with the supporting materials for the speakers. Besides, training courses had been organised at various regions for free for the speakers every year.

In view of the importance of the NS Dharma Class project, the National Service Programme Special Committee was formed in a YBAM National Council meeting in January 2006, to better synergizing the efforts and resources for the betterment of the NS Buddhist participants. YBAM also engaged in a full-time staff to administer this project and established the YBAM NS Programme Dharma Class Fund to cater the huge administration and activity expenses.

In addition, YBAM also publish the “What Buddhist Believes” authored by the late Chief Ven. K Sri Dharmananda, as a reference for Buddhist participants. In 2010 and 2012, 7950 copies and 8000 copies were printed respectively and were distributed free to all NS Buddhist Participants.

To date, there are nearly 80 NS Camps throughout the country and through this project we are able to touch base with about 10,000 Buddhist teenagers with 20 to 40 hours of Dharma learning in both In-Camp and Out-Camp activities.

This project is not only benefited tens of thousands of Buddhist teenagers, but also Organisations and individuals who have involved in this project. Many Buddhist Organisations have take the opportunity to groom their Dharma speakers and young Buddhist leaders as well.
