Community Service (Barangay Commonwealth)
Last June 14 to 16, 2017 (Wednesday to Friday) , the Beauty Care and Nail Care Vocational Training (BCNCVT) students conducted a 3-day Community Service at the Barangay Hall of Commonwealth. The Kagawads as well as the other workers and staffs of the Barangay played a big role in making the event successful. Aside from providing the venue, they consistently announced the said Community Service on public advisory to promote it.
This Community Service is a part of their On-the-Job training which aims to develop and enhance the already learned skills of the students. Reassuringly, the students with hearing impairment improved their self-confidence through this community service and proved that regardless of their disability, they can still function competitively as compared to the more abled community members.
On the three days of Community Service, the 1st and 2nd batch of BCNCVT went together with their instructor, Mrs. Cerna Navarro from TESDA. The services offered during the immersion were Manicure, Pedicure, Massage, and Haircut which were serviced to the barangay officials and community members. The feedbacks of the people they served were positive; especially towards the students of the 1st batch. Given that they have already undergone a whole month of training, lectures, and assessments, their performance were remarkably better than the 2nd batch students who have just been training for only a week. Since the 2nd batch students were exposed early to servicing, their instructors were able to see their potential and passion to learn more about Beauty and Nail Care.
Overall, the Community Service held was successful. Through the guidance of the BCNCVT instructor, Mrs. Cerna Navarro, and their interpreter, Ms. Merry Dorothy Nogueras, the mishaps of the event were very minimal. It was truly a remarkable experience for all of the students and staffs involved. Because of the good performance shown by the students, other Barangays are now inviting them to hold a Community Service as well which serves as a good opportunity towards the employment of the students. Above all, it is clear that God has guided the students as well as their instructor and interpreter to succeed on this event.
