National cadet corps is one of the most glorious youth-organizations involved in wide voluntary national development activities in which the training curriculum is very useful for achieving the critical indicators of national human resource development (NHRD). On the other hand, stakeholders’ active engagement is one of the most important elements that facilitate the successful operation of an NHRD organization like the cadet corps. Primarily, the study aimed to establish a theoretical connection between the cadet corps training program and youthfocused NHRD. Later, a case study was conducted on a sample NHRD organization for youths, namely Bangladesh National Cadet Corps (BNCC), to surface the factors impeding the active engagement of its key stakeholders’. An extensive literature review was conducted for theoretical  justification on the facts of NHRD, cadet corps training and significance of stakeholder analysis and the qualitative research methodology was applied to investigate the factors impeding the engagement of the stakeholders of BNCC. Lack of incentive scheme and the absence of social recognition is found as a common factor of stakeholders’ disengagement in the training activities of BNCC. Apposite and categorized incentive scheme is suggested to accelerate the engagement of stakeholders in training programs. NHRD, through cadet corps training, is still an unexplored area in the new era of development research. The study like this will open a new window of social research and a new school of thought for youth-focused NHRD.
