Feature: Advocating time consciousness, honesty in school kids

By Mai Gevera

Davao City (6 June) -- Fighting corruption is also about teaching kids the values of time-consciousness and honesty early on.

This is the aim of Project WATCH (We Advocate Time Consciousness and Honesty), an advocacy program of JCI Senate Philippines in partnership with the Department of Education, Commission on Higher Education, and Technical Education and Skills Development.

It hopes to counter the negative image of "Filipino" time and "Corruption" by introducing lessons of values amongst the youth of 8 to 18 years old enrolled in schools nationwide.

The project follows a formula for work quality and improved productivity by promoting time consciousness as the root for honesty in words and in actions.

JCI Senate Philippines Inc. hopes that this Project WATCH will do its share in helping mold a better generation and better society through its awareness programs.

So far, JCI has already held free Values workshops in the Philippine Normal University, Ramon Magsaysay High School Cubao, University of Baguio, DepEd Valenzuela, and DepEd Boracay.

For region XI, DepEd regional Director Susana Estigoy is open to allow schools in the region to benefit from the workshops to be conducted by JCI.

Proposed activities include debate and essay contest, and organization of WATCH Clubs.

JCI also opens this project to companies and government offices who want to encourage punctuality and instill honesty in the workplace. (PIA XI) [top]
