SHARE, deriving from the phrase 'Show You Care', and TRESNA, which translates to 'love' in Javanese language, is an activity held by the Service Learning Community UPH (SLC) under the Student Life Department aimed to encourage and accomodate students to participate in various activities, making an impact to the surrounding community. Service Learning in itself is a method of learning where students apply their academic and non-academic skills to the communities around them.

   

One recent activity that the Service Learning Community (SLC) has undertaken is the SHARE: TRESNA program, also called love sharing, which took place on June 10, 2017, at UPH campus, Karawaci. In contrast to most of their other activities which are aimed to service communities outside of UPH (external), SHARE: TRESNA is an activity aimed towards outsourced workers in the campus environment of UPH. Approximately 95 participants took part in the training, those of which included were security, office boy, gardener, and maintenance.

   

Initially, Student Learning Community (SLC) first conducted a suvery to gather information and understand the needs of the outsourced employees. The results showed that many conveyed the need for a more effective self-development that could directly impact their daily performance. As such, SLC decided to organise a training workshop with main topics "Time Management & Work Motivation" and "English Communication".

 

The training workship and seminar was taught by experts who are competent in such fields were invited to teach and train the outsourced employees. The organization commmittee invited Mrs. Kristina Untari Setiawan, M.M., who is an English lecturer from the Faculty of Liberal Arts, as well as 25 students from International Teachers College (ITC) and 15 Teachers College students. The "Time Management & Work Motivation" training seminar was presented by Business school Lecturers Mrs. Yonaha F. Cahaya Palupi Meilani, M.Sci., and Mr. Radityo Fajar Arianto. There were also materials presented by assistant lecturer Ms Allecia Helery.

   

The participants' responses for this event were excellent, as seen from their earnest and active participation. The committee hopes for the outsourced employees to develop the useful skills and knowledge they have acquired from the training, and be able to apply them to their daily activies to improve their self-development.

 

This activity was organised and executed by semester 1 and 2 students who are members of Service Learning Community (SLC). The community itself has been prevalent since 2006, but was officially established in 2014 with the aim of forming apositive character through one's environmental sensitivity. In that, students are able to participate and contribute in solving problems of the community, as well as sharperning their interpersonal skills by developing communication skills to collaborate and negotiate with others in the practical learning of maiking an impact to the community they are a part of.
