YCS calls student to serve in CSAW 2016
The Young Community Stewards (YCS) spearheaded the Community Service Awareness Week last November 15 to 19, 2016. With the theme “Engaging Minds and Promoting Oneness in Working towards Enriching and Raising Awareness towards Community Development,” the said week aims to emphasize the true meaning of selfless service and volunteerism.
The exhibit, which was opened in the ribQbon-cutting ceremony at the first-floor lobby, showcased eye-opening artworks from the YCS members, community-related quotes from famous people, and an engaging freedom wall for the students. With its aim to promote community building, the said organization launched EMPOWER, a seminar series which was held simultaneously last November 16 and 17, 2016 at the Benavides Auditorium. The former had prominent guest speakers, Mr. Rey Bufi and Ms. Mots Ventura, who talked for Grade 7 and eight students, respectively. The latter was intended for the Grade 9 and ten students who had Mr. Mon Gualvez and Mr. Marvin Orias as their speakers, respectively.
Collaborating with 31 other organizations, the Young Community Stewards ended the celebration with a Coastal Clean Up entitled: “Buhayin ang Baybayin at Ating Mahalin” last November 19, 2016, at the Freedom Island, LPPCHEA, Parañaque. It is expected that this week has engaged the minds of the student body in pursuing their journey towards the reality of selfless service and volunteerism.
