Once again the youth of Tamkang University are about to be sent off in all directions to offer volunteer social services. Before leaving, President Flora Chia-I Chang was invited to give students encouragement at the Flag Ceremony Send-off. This winter vacation there will be 37 different service teams adding up to around 800 students, who completely packed the Student Activity Center as they prepared for their exciting journey. President Chang continually complimented the students on their gracious and selfless work ethic.
In the past, during the Flag Ceremony Send-off, each team would have the chance to shout loudly to express their aspirations and enthusiasm. But due to time restraints and the increased student numbers, they made a vow together to be inspired, active and sincere with the upcoming services. This year 35 teams will be offering volunteer services to every part of Taiwan. The other two teams will be going overseas for services to Thailand and Guizhou. This year students aim to really make a difference while planting new seeds of hope wherever they go. There is a diverse amount of services related to education, etiquette, arts and computer skills. All of the teams will be taking the teachings and blessings of their professors along with them.
