In aid of their upcoming initiative, representatives from MAS Lab visited #TeamKC to raise awareness of the importance of Social Action projects, their aim was to chat to our students about the topics they are passionate about making a change for by taking part in several activities, including a Kahoot quiz, our students did us proud as all suggestions were very well received and provided a great basis for future MAS Lab projects. they also promoted the relaxing effects of bringing pets into work, our students obviously loved this idea and the pups loved the attention they received!
THE IMPORTANCE OF SOCIAL ACTION
Social action naturally explores interests, hobbies, and young people’s skills. It is especially important in this day and age because it helps young people develop a level of social awareness, a sense of belonging and will also strengthen young people’s social bonds within their local community. participating in social action projects allows you also to develop new skills in various areas, this could be anything from ICT skills to communication, allowing you to increase your career prospects.
