On October 2, alumna Silva Bisofa’ 17 organized an informative event about the core values of the FLEX program and encouraged participants to take part in volunteer work in her local community, Liepaja.
The alumna shared the benefits of volunteering in the community and expressed how easy it is to get involved. As a first-generation FLEX alumna, Silva also took this opportunity to provide information to the participants about the FLEX program and the audience had a lot of questions.
After this event, Silva led the 30 participants in a public works project where they cleaned up their local park.
Looking forward, Silva is planning to organize similar events with the goal of involving even more people in her community. She hopes such community involvement will help to create a pride in her town and a group of people dedicated to service.
