Pines City Colleges consider service to be an integral part of its mission. It is the aim of the school that all staff, faculty, and students will incorporate community service in their professional and personal lives. Hence, Extension Office formulated the institution’s community service road map through Project ANGEL. Being itself, Angel is a bundle of God’s ever-present love and grace.
An Angel has been created to serve, love, hold and support those to whom it is assigned. According to Stellar, Angels are the essence of love and service. A Guardian Angel is a being that is dedicated to serving and helping. Project ANGEL will define the direction of the community extension program of Pines City Colleges.
Project ANGEL stands for
Networking and Linkages
Green and Clean Environment
Education and Health and
Pines City Colleges (PCC) staff, faculty, and students will then be called “Angels in Green” since the official color of PCC is green. It is hoped that through this project, the institution will continue working to expand and strengthen the community services program that will cater to the needs of the community.
The community extension programs of Pines City Colleges will not just focus on one or two needs but rather on the holistic needs of the community such as a green and clean environment, education, health, and livelihood. The program will be wrapped up into one and will be called Project ANGEL.
The extension office of Pines City Colleges will fulfill its mission with a commitment to promote the connection between academic learning and community service. It is committed to embedding in the culture of PCC the passion for service, that service is inherent to any profession and together with success is the responsibility to reach out, to share the knowledge, time, skill, and resources to mankind, especially to those who are in need.
