Three UPLB Basic Researches on Volunteerism Approved

Three researches on volunteerism and related topics were approved for UPLB basic research funding this March 2013.

The research on “Promoting Reading among Public Elementary Pupils: the Reading Enhancement and Appreciation Development (READ) Program” was approved with Dr. Rowena Baconguis, former Pahinungod director, as project leader and Ms. Stella Ebio as team leader. The research aims to evaluate the READ program as a volunteer intervention for the improvement of reading aptitude and in the promotion of positive reading habits at early schooling.

Meanwhile, Prof. Romel Daya will serve as team leader for the research on “Effects of Volunteer Development on the Wellbeing and Sustained Involvement of Volunteers” which aims to determine formative effects of current Pahinungod curriculum, evaluate its volunteer training and capacity-building methods and propose necessary improvements on the program.  Dr. Baconguis and Ms. Ebio will serve as team members.

Finally, the research on “Emergent Constructs among Volunteers of Selected Southern Tagalog State Colleges and Universities (SCUs)” will determine the effects of volunteer involvement in the formation of constructs and among volunteers particularly in defining leadership concepts and characteristics. Glenn Lubuguin of Pahinungod will serve as project leader with Dr. Pamela Custodio (CDC) and Jose Limbay Lahi Espaldon (Pahinungod) as project staff.
