REQUIREMENTS/CONTEXTEveryone is “required” to do at least 4 hours of community service a semester.What we have been doing for several years now is volunteering at various sites throughout the City and the Bay Area.Our organization also has a Community Service requirement laid out by SLE and ASUSF Senate. This is known as a Community Action Plan/Proposal (CAP)
WHY REQUIREMENTS?Purpose“The general purpose of Kasamahan is to promote the unity and solidarity of the Filipino-American community by creating a campus wide environment that assertively affirms the richness and uniqueness of the many cultural experiences of members and by actively involving educational and pre- professional programs that aid the group in the assessment, development and actualization of each member‟s human potential and personal talents.
