The mission of LASA is, “Use what we learn to serve, who we love.”In this era of immense development of industry and commerce, there are many and continuous qarrels to lands where we live on.

They actively prepared for organizing a volunteers group and the first-time mission was achieved in Chiangchun township in Tainan County in 1983. The main content was divided into three parts: household visited, education and entertainment and set up stands providing serves instantly.

 

  •       Local Newspaper – Shock:

It is a common situation that people merely choose popular media as the main source of information , which makes local features and importance ignored. But how many of us, the ordinary people, really live on the understanding of international circumstances or Taiwanese political situation. The things popular media show us are just several images of distant lands, which hve only the slightest relation to our daily lives.

We usually overlook what actually happened around us. May be we can try to squeeze a little time from every day to understand Sanshia, our new home, and be fascinated by its history and stories. We all used to be a passerby of Sanshia at the beginning, but gradually we started to discover the root of Sanshia as time passed by.  

In order to promote the local culture of Sanshia, two National Taipei University (NTPU) students, Shi Zhan-Cheng and Bai Jia-Yu, established “SHOCK!” a club focusing on Sanshia local culture. By publishing free weekly, both of them not only participated public issues but furthered the communication between local residents and the university. Bai Jia-Yu, one of the founders of the weekly, explained that the concept of the club appeared in their minds while he and Shi each visited Stanford University. The set up of the school brought people and community into originally desolate campus. To stimulate the interaction between the people and the campus, Stanford started many club meetings, invited residents to join sports and art activities, and published school newspapers at the same time. All of these works deeply amazed Shi and Bai. They hoped to bring this sort of pattern into NTPU.

“SHOCK! Free Weekly” is limitedly published in 1000 copies each issue. According to Bai, seventy percentage of the fund is still undertaken by him and Shi. The rest of the cost is relied on the seeking of advertisement cooperation with local business.

“It was definitely hard in the beginning,” said Bai. Most members of the club rarely had experiences and skills of publishing. However, it also encouraged Bai overcame obstacles after seeing many schoolmates’ voluntary devotions to this program. Through his intern experience and the contact with the industry, Bai claimed that he found many college students were lack of active attitude. “Even though we (Bai and Shi) couldn’t provide any payment,” he said, “we still asked everyone to be responsible and show active attitude instead of confining themselves as a student.

Wang Yu-Hao, Public Relations Practitioner of the club, claimed that his identification with Sanxia became stronger and stronger during the process of seeking funds and writing news articles. He was also more aware of what was happening around. Under the management of the club, every member’s opinion was valued. There was no different treatment between the ranks, which Wang considered quite unique to the other clubs.

 

  •        Olive branch center

In recent years, the conflicts and bullying in campus have often made teachers and parents of kids feel disturbed. If we can bring the peace relation in events of bullying and conflict, and let the conflicting counterparts have a space to talk in peace as they show the olive branch. Maybe, this approach will lead the way of restoring counterparts’ relations and peace in campus, and away from the traditional ways such as isolating, respective tutoring and parent’s intervention. Olive symbolizes peace, and this is the purpose of the center. We hope that the campus and students toward each other are all in peace but not disputes and conflicts take place continuously. We advocate using olive branch circles in restorative justice to deal with the conflicts, and we’d like to accept the bullying occurred in Taipei& New Taipei as our respective case and have them to be discussed. The bullies and victims in this research would be abstracted out of the real circumstance, and we would offer a safe environment to let two parts realize what the other thinks and how their behaviors impact other else. Hope we can restore the relations between bullies and victims by this kind of conversation. Furthermore, to be tutored and coped with by groups not from schools can avoid parents from mistrusts toward school being the obstacle of conversation and resolving conflicts. The Olive Branch Center’s website is http:// olive.ntpu.edu.tw. Those who are interested in resolving the bullying events by using mediation circles methods are welcome to check out the site.  

 

Volunteer Activities:

The university’s volunteer service activities are organized either by the Extarcurricular Activities Section of the Office of Student Affairs, service-oriented clubs or by the service teams formed by each department.These units set up various service training sessions or other activities to provide enriched and diverse learning opportunities.

The Extarcurricular Activities Section takes charge of international volunteers and campus tour volunteers.Training for these volunteers emphasizes fundamentals as wella s special expertise,equipping students with the skills to best serve their interest groups.

Aside from serving in remote areas during winter and summer vacations, service oriented clubs also do community service during the school year.This improves the members’ planning and coordinating skills as well as enhances the way they work in teams.Students also plan thei own club workshops and training programs to increase their knowledge and improve abilities.
