The money is supposed to be taken from the budget of the Ministry of Defense, but it requires a government decision.
In order to be able to fully begin the implementation of the mandatory subject of national defense training in all educational institutions of Latvia from September 1, 2024 and to ensure the implementation of education in the interests of the Young Guard, on January 23, the Cabinet of Ministers approved the creation of 84 additional funded positions at the center of the Young Guard.
In order to ensure high-quality national defense training, the Young Guard Center has defined the need for 345 young guard instructor positions as an optimal solution. Currently, the Young Guard Center has 244 trained young guard instructors for national defense training, and in 2024, another 26 funded young guard instructor positions have been allocated, making a total of 270 young guard instructor positions.
In order to achieve the goal, starting from 2024, an additional 75 funded new guard instructor positions and nine support staff positions are required. The financing of the new positions will be realized from the budget allocated to the Ministry of Defense.
Also, the Ministry of Defense has agreed with the Ministry of Education and Science that instead of the initial 144-hour program, a 112-hour national defense curriculum will be implemented, keeping all modules of national defense education, while some topics will be transferred to other subjects.
Currently, in the 2023/2024 academic year, national defense training is successfully implemented in 182 educational institutions, covering more than 15,500 students of national defense training, while more than 8,500 young guards have joined the Young Guard movement.
In 2018, the Saeima adopted a decision that from September 1, 2024, national defense training will be introduced as a compulsory subject in all educational institutions that implement general and vocational secondary education.
