In terms of Nazi Germany children were 'indoctrinated' into Nazi ideas and beliefs. The Nazis were able to 'teach' children their version of history, their racist and anti-semitic ideas - so they would grow up as Nazi believers.
This is what indoctrination was all about.

You can find out about the Hitler youth at the following sites:
The Hitler Youth was a logical extension of Hitler's belief that the future of Nazi Germany was its children. The Hitler Youth was seen as being as important to a child as school was. In the early years of the Nazi government, Hitler had made it clear as to what he expected German children to be like:
"The weak must be chiselled away. I want young men and women who can suffer pain. A young German must be as swift as a greyhound, as tough as leather, and as hard as Krupp's steel."
Nazi education schemes part fitted in with this but Hitler wanted to occupy the minds of the young in Nazi Germany even more.

Ah thanks very much, Mr Field. Was there much opposition from young people? Just of interest is there any stats to prove how many actually joined, am I right in thinking it wasn't always compulsory to join?
You can find this answer in the links that you were given. Read the first link.
