Co-Curricular activity Community Action Service
Full cycle of service action:
Students in groups conceptualize any one community service that benefit others or society. It requires students to conduct a full cycle including:
Identify what community’s needs of the time and tie together with students’ strengths
Plan the activity – take an approval from the course instructor
Plan and conduct interesting activities during your community service
Write a report and provide evidences: reflect on the process and outcomes and how it benefitted the society. What could have been done better?
Ideas or Examples for Community Service:
Helping Special needs Children in schools or universities
Helping Senior Citizens in old age home
Helping Animals and the Environment
Helping the Hungry and/or Homeless
Promoting Community Enhancement
Now that you know what your options are for community service, you can take the following steps to start getting involved:
1. Look over your interests: Which service seem most appealing to you? Were they mostly in one particular category, like special needs children or the environment? If so, that’s a good starting place for choosing specific organizations to contact.
2. Figure out how much time you can devote to community service: Are you available for two hours every week? Are you not free on a regular basis but can volunteer for an entire weekend now and then? Think about transportation as well and how you’ll be able to get to different locations. Knowing this information will help you choose which community service projects to pursue, and its helpful information for volunteer coordinators to know.
3. Do some research to see what projects you can do in your community: You can also contact the place where you’d like to perform your community service, such as a particular animal shelter or nursing home, and ask if they take volunteers.
4. Start volunteering! If you find a service you can start on your own with the help of your group members. If you want to do a project where you’ll need more resources or people, check around your community to see if a similar program already exists that you can join. If not, don’t be afraid to start your own! Many organizations welcome new volunteers and community service projects.
