CIVIC Welfare Training Service (CWTS) students will no longer have to clean the campus to pass the course unlike in previous years.

CWTS coordinator Dr. Lito Maranan said the program has been revised.

“We have two main programs: Thomasians’ concern for the environment and CWTS program on social transformation,” Maranan said. The two practicum programs will be implemented in the second semester.

The environment program will have activities such as holding mini-fora on cleanliness and the environment on campus, poster-making, lantern-making, tree-planting, and helping patients in the charity ward of the UST hospital.

The Social Transformation program, on the other hand, will focus on extending help to charitable institutions such as Golden Acres, Reception and Study Center for Children, Elsie Gaches, and Jose Fabella Center.

Maranan said the changes were based on student requests.

Aside from the revised practicum, students will also be involved with activities that cannot be accomplished online such as seminars and exposure trips.

Seminars on entrepreneurship, good citizenship values, the environment, and dangerous drugs as a social menace have been arranged for the CWTS students.

There will also be exposure trips to Gawad Kalinga sites, squatter’s areas, and charitable institutions.
