Chairman of Dewan Racana Dery Gowang said, Bimas event for new members became one of the leading agenda for UIN Jakarta Scout program. Participants perform community service during the week by homestay.
“During their stay, the participants were also asked to help the daily activities of the residents,” said Dery.
According to Dery, community service activities are important to the Penegak-Pandega Scout. This is because they are already considered as mature enough in terms of mental and physical. The tasks and responsibilities of these groups are quite huge, so their activities have to be oriented to the community.
“Penegak-Pandega scout activities must be in the middle of community, doing problem solving and even research,” he added.
During the event, scout of UIN Jakarta provide guidance and counseling, social activities and worship, as well as physical activities in the form of making garbage cans, street signs, painting the house of worship, and open the cheap and affordable bazaar. (usa)
