Liberal Arts Education gives lots of importance for Volunteering. To successfully complete high school diploma most curriculum got specific requirements of volunteering hours. For example, IB. Each IB Diploma student must complete 150 CAS hours over the course of their junior and senior years. These hours must fit into one of the three areas: Creativity, Action, Service, and should be balanced between these categories (approximately 50 hours in each area).
This is where TLUPS Volunteering program comes in where we guide participants to make best of this opportunity, to create a purpose in life, identify carers, meet people, and enjoy the experience. We follow the methodologies proposed by Peter Drucker and collaborate with Peter Drucker Foundation
For us - Volunteering is generally considered an altruistic activity where an individual or group provides services for no financial gain. Volunteering is also renowned for skill development, and is often intended to promote goodness or to improve human quality of life. Volunteering may have positive benefits for the volunteer as well as for the person or community served. It is also intended to make contacts for possible employment. Many volunteers are specifically trained in the areas they work, such as medicine, education, or emergency rescue. Others serve on an as-needed basis, such as in response to a natural disaster.
The program provide an orientation, a training but mostly we help participants to identify their opportunities in their neighborhood and provide them with specific training
