The culture of doing more for others and the passion for excellence have always been impregnable anchors of the Dr. Yanga’s Colleges, Inc. (DYCI) as an institution – from the students, faculty, administration and the entire school as well. Aside from the achievements, awards and recognitions that the school, the administration, the faculty and the students have collectively reaped through the years, DYCI High School has also put a premium in doing social responsibility, involving every DYCIan to do good and help others.
Values and Spiritual Formation
The societal role of DYCIans is fully anchored on the need to inscribe the presence of God to the whole community and the values essential to nation-building, especially catering to the youth and the impoverished.
Thus, DYCI is fully engaged in values formation through different involvement of its faculty and students to these activities:
Malnutrition and Mitigation Program
DYCI has been engaged in a feeding program for the chosen “malnourished” students of its adopted school, Cong. Erasmo Cruz Memorial Central School. Every section is tasked to manage the 3-day feeding program every school year. To date, DYCI High School has 50 sections making the feeding program the entire school year since 2006.
Information and Communication Technology
A means to uplift the society is to help in molding the competitive advantage of the people and helping them be at par with the fast-paced advancements in the field of information and communication technology.
Arts, History and Culture
Participation of DYCIans in community-building go beyond the traditional outreach programs and even involve itself in the arts and culture. Since 2004, DYCIans are participating in the reenactment of Rizal execution every December 30. The DYCI Dancetroupe and choir members have alse been part of many civic activities that deepen the appreciation of arts, history and culture.
Indeed, in our own ways, far more than the basic function of an academe, I can proudly say that Dr. Yanga’s Colleges, Inc. provides good service to its multi-stakeholders.
