Reported by Reporter Tseng Yu-Jung
It has been one decade since CYCU promoted the Service-Learning courses. It gathered the students from three departments including Department of Business Administration and had them help NPOs establish own marketing strategies with their professional knowledge. The student of CYCU Department of Business Administration, Chuang Hao-Kai, said that he found his own value after participating in the Service-Learning.
CYCU started to promote the Service-Learning one decade ago. Different from the simple volunteer service, CYCU Department of Business Administration, Department of Commercial Design and Department of Electronic Engineering co-worked with each other to release the “advertising & marketing Service-Learning courses” to help students do what they are good at and provide such services as marketing, app design and advertisement, so as to help NPOs or social enterprises solve problems.
The team of the junior student of CYCU Department of Business Administration, Chuang Hao-Kai, helped Yes Service-Learning Association set up the website, design the identification system, and train seed teachers to act as the trainers of Service-Learning at elementary schools. Chuang Hao-Kai revealed that he found his own value when providing services in the elementary school.
The junior student of CYCU Department of Business Administration, Lee Yu-En, and other students helped the newly founded social enterprise, “Green Footprint”, raise the enterprise’s public awareness, develop oriented toward the identity of elderly happiness and set up the fan page on social community network and organize functions on the fan page. Meanwhile, they worked with the residents in Pingzhen District to organize the carnival game and invite the elderly to attend the game. As a result, they received a lot of positive responses. According to Lee Yu-En, the most difficult part resulted from insufficient experience and time.
In addition to said two teams, some students also worked with Environment & Animal Society of Taiwan to present the “Good Egg Push Push” plan and promote the cage free eggs, hoping that everyone may care food safety.
