In order to enable its students to possess the attributes of being morally and intellectually responsive with social awareness and a caring attitude for needy people, TWC requires all its students, both degree and sub-degree, to complete 30 hours of community service as part of the graduation requirement.
Community Service Team
The Community Service (CS) Team was set up in 2012 to encourage students to get involved in volunteer service. Over the past years, the team had helped a cross section of society including the elders, children, low income families, person with intellectual disabilities, patients, people in recovery of mental illness, psychotropic substance abusers, youths and the animals.
The CS team encourages students to serve the community by applying their professional knowledge and skills. The team members are responsible for organizing various types of community service activities and training workshops. Through the participation of such activities, students are able to develop a right attitude of life, good interpersonal and communication skills, and a sense of social awareness.
