Extension Activities

The Institution offers students the opportunity to participate in extension activities as part of their curricula. Extension work is done under the umbrella of the National Service Scheme, Youth Red Cross and Red Ribbon Club. It is mandatory for students to take part in extracurricular activities and it carries credits for the service done by them.  Awareness is raised by coordinators of extension programmes in the college on a) the relevance of participation in social service activities and b) the mandatory nature of the programme, as part of the CBCS pattern.

RRC
  • RRC's activities are aimed towards five specific targets.
  • Opening up a discussion or sexual behaviour change among youth.

  • Increasing the perception of risky activities in the youth.
  • Creating of peer educators.
  • Reaching out to non-RRC youth, non-collegiate
  • youth and the general public.

 

Red as a sign of warning is particularly relevant in the context of impressionable youth. At an age when sex is an adventure, an exploration of intrinsic desire, the thought of danger is far, far away. Yet, it is this group, defined by curiosity and boldness that is extremely vulnerable to AIDS. Youth is a nation's future. They are the trend setters, the leading lights of every home and therefore very influential. Target them and you target the nation.The Red Ribbon Club (RRC) is a voluntary on-campus intervention programme for students in colleges and universities in Tamil Nadu.The first RRC was formed in Periyar University, Salem, in June 2005.It has since acquired a momentum that will be a huge resource in Tamil Nadu's and India's fight against AIDS. The programme aims at harnessing the potential of educated youth and helps them to be the educators among their peers in the entire campus and the community at large.

YRC

YRCThe Indian Red Cross is a voluntary humanitarian organization having a network of over 700 branches throughout the country, providing relief in times of disasters/emergencies and promotes health & care of the vulnerable people and communities. It is a leading member of the largest independent humanitarian organization in the world, the International Red Cross & Red Crescent Movement.

 YRC trains to render selfless service to their society. In a bid to prepare communities for emergencies and to nurture humanitarianism in the youth, the Youth Red Cross unit of M.G.R College undertakes umpteen tasks.

Youth represent a substantial part of the membership of Red Cross for its humanitarian commitment. Young volunteers can make a significant contribution to meeting the needs of the most vulnerable people within their local communities through Red Cross youth programme. This has been designed to involve young people as much as possible in the movement and its activities not only as workers and also as beneficiaries, but as partners in management.
