Community Service for Community Development

On 1st July, 2007, A day seminar was held for 19 youth in Amuwo-odofin, Lagos on community service/volunteering for their self and community development.

This seminar aimed at enhancing the degree of human spiritedness and commitment among the youth to carrying out some form of social as well as civic responsibilities for the development of communities.

The objectives of the seminar
• To have an in-depth understanding and the need for community service
• To unleash the hidden benefits of volunteering
• To promote active participation and inclusion among youth
• To execute the process of stepping down my Global Xchange experience as a Returned volunteer.

The seminar was interactive and participants were enlightened on the need for community service, the values that should be attached to it, how they can be engaged by participating in community development activities.
At the end of the day, participants received some resources on community service and some useful information/websites of local and international organizations they could equip themselves with, get opportunities and start taking action.
