The conference was a great opportunity for community service club members from all over Morocco to meet and discuss many aspects related to community service and voluntary work. Participants from other cities gave insightful presentations and talks about their experience and projects organized by their community service clubs.
During the conference, the ALC of Fez organized many workshops on topics such as poverty, educational services, cross-cultural services, and ways on how to enhance the empowerment of women. These workshops gave the participants a general idea about the achieved goals of the Community Service Club in Fez in working with girls at the Center for Protection of Girls, tutoring children at the Women’s Shelter, visits to the boys’ center, as well as other projects that were held in Fez.
This conference gave participants the opportunity to know more about other ALC’s community service clubs around Morocco, to learn from their experiences, and to set new common goals to be achieved in the future.
The new goals focus on the importance of setting bigger projects that will involve and unite different community service clubs in Morocco, encouraging youth to take part in volunteer work through organizing more sensitizing campaigns in schools and universities, and getting them involved in more social and educational activities all over Morocco.
The First Annual Community Service Club Conference was appreciated by the participants, who were eager to meet community service club members from other ALCs in the country. They appreciated the different educational and fun activities, the networking opportunities, the lunch on Sunday in the ALC Fez garden, the musical performances, and the tour of the Fez medina.
