Talisay Coalition talks on volunteerism

College President Dr. Renato Sorolla and the other officers of the Talisay City Multi-Sectoral Coalition for Development were invited by Skycable last August 26 live at the station to talk about their volunteerism in the pursuit of the Talisay City Vision 2020.

Among the officers present were former Talisay City Councilor Carlos Balcells, School of Jesus Head Dr. Joy Vingno, and Jaunts and Journeys Travels Center owner and operator Jorre Tamparon.

Balcells shared that the coalition considers itself as the “voice of the people” because they come from different sectors of the city population.

The group talked about COSCo as ideal qualities for Talisay—clean, orderly, safe, and congenial—a community that fosters an ambiance conducive for both local and foreign investments to flourish.

On the issue of widespread graffiti in Talisay, Dr. Sorolla shared in particular that the College can help make COSCo a reality by educating the youth in the city that they can be more productive than just merely destroying properties—that they can actually do something positive with their lives and put their knowledge and skills to good use.

To this end, the College also sent its National Service Training Program students to participate in the launching of the Anti-Graffiti Campaign on September 6.
