Business and Accountancy stakeholders bring livelihood updates to Lindawan National High School Students

In the spirit of volunteerism and community development, on April 12, 2024, Lindawan National High School in Barangay Lucnab, Baguio City, witnessed an inspiring outreach activity by the University of Baguio’s School of Business Administration and Accountancy (UB-SBAA). Graduating students took charge of organizing the outreach program guided by Ma’am Maria Veneranda Campos, practicum adviser, aimed to enlighten the students about various crucial livelihood topics necessary for their future endeavors, through collaborative efforts with the SBAA student organizations and selected alumni. 

This outreach program was a testament to the commitment of both institutions toward community development and youth empowerment, at the same time promoting the United Nation Sustainable Development Goal (UN-SDG) #8: Decent Work and Economic Growth. The outreach program engaged students from Grade 7 to Grade 12, having a total of two hundred and four (204) students.

By engaging in this initiative, UB SBAA graduating students, alumni, and student organizations actively contributed to fostering an environment where young individuals have the necessary knowledge and skills for their future entrepreneurship endeavors. 

The UB SBAA stakeholders demonstrated that sustainable development goes hand in hand with creating a positive impact on the communities. As the participating graduating students embark on their respective journeys, they carry with them the values of integrity, excellence, and social responsibility instilled by their alma mater, serving as catalysts of change who inspire others to not just prioritize personal success but also the collective well-being of their communities. In essence, their collective efforts exemplify the spirit of SDG #8 and serve as a beacon of hope and progress for future generations striving for a world where everyone can thrive in dignified and fulfilling work.
