    Last July 21 and 22, the Young Community Stewards began its series for the Batang Bibo outreach program at the Juan Sumulong Elementary School. With the theme “Ang Batang Malusog ay Batang Bigay Todo,” the said activity was participated in by officers from 10 organizations in the high school.

    On the first day, the students were told about bible stories by the Student Catholic Action to promote spiritual health. It was followed by a lecture about Thrifty Cooking from the Culinary Arts Club along with some food. For the collaboration between the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of the Philippines, both organizations taught the students about basic survival skills and house tips.


    The endless serving was continued during the second day in which the Cultural Dance Troupe started the day with a Zumba fitness exercise. The said organization also lectured about how important physical health is. It was succeeded by the Young Community stewards who taught about proper nutrition, etiquette and hygiene. Each student was also given health kits along with some food to further promote personal health. The Natural Science Club and the Arts and Crafts Club joined forces to lecture about the essence of recycling and the basics of gardening. Both organizations aimed to coordinate plants with recycled crafts to promote the importance of environmental health.


    Over 70 participants had taken their part in promoting different kinds of health to celebrate the Nutrition Month. It is expected for the number of participants to improve as the series goes on. Furthermore, the activity gave emphasis to the importance of every kind of health in order to promote a happy and clean environment.

    YCS spearheads Brigada Eskwela 2016


    The Young Community Stewards conducted its Brigada Eskwela on May 30 and June 2 at Northville IV-B Elementary School and Juan Sumulong Elementary School, respectively. With the main objective of giving the students and teachers a clean and well-prepared facilities, the said activity was participated in by officers from 13 organizations in the high school.


    “Our goal for the activity was to help make the school ready for the students and teachers,” says Mary Elspeth Cabalquinto, president of the Young Community Stewards. Aside from cleaning and repairing the facilities, art-related organizations also painted the walls and fences outside the school. This community service is also a perfect opportunity for the volunteers to open their eyes in appreciating the well-maintained facilities of a school.


    Fortunately, the number of participants was higher compared to the last conducted Brigada Eskwela which was in 2014. This has proved that more organizations are willing to participate in outreach programs. Furthermore, the activity gave emphasis to the importance of school sanitation and hygiene to help students focus as the school year starts.
