CFC Project ReForm Trains CFC, Non-CFC Volunteers

More than 50 counselors and aspirants attended the “How to Be an Amazing Counselor for Drug Rehab” in Betania Retreat House, Tagaytay City last September 22-24, 2017.

 

Jojo Apolo, CFC Project Reform Trainer and Chapter Head of CFC Jakarta, conducted the three-day seminar. Attendees were from Couples for Christ, CBCP Episcopal Commission on Prison Pastoral Care and other youth volunteers.


Mon De Leon, CFC Social Development Head,reminded everyone in his opening remarks that they were there because they were called by the Church to help others.“This is the fertile ground where God called us to be because He wants us to become His hands,” he emphasized.


Apolo taught the participants about Lead Presentation System and some exercises that will allow counselors to connect with patients in drug rehabilitation centers. Arnel Santos, International Council member, reiterated the role of CFC Project ReForm and all its programs and activities. He believes that all the learnings acquired over the three days will truly be effective when brought to the ground.He shared, “My wife and I will remain volunteers of the program because aside from the mission of being part of the International Council, CFC Project ReForm is also our mission.”


The seminar ended with more exercises and techniques led by Apolo that will be helpful for both counselors and patients. It was followed by a practicum held at Tagaytay City Jail and the Carmona City Jail where participants, divided into two groups, applied the things they learned in the three-day training and seminar.

 

Recognizing ReForm heroes


The commitment to give their lives in serving drug surrenderers and those in rehabilitation centers paid off for Noel Deang ang Jo Dilag of Project ReForm.

Deang and Dilag are both active CFC members who continue to do the good works of the Lord through the activities of Project ReForm. Deang, while still in CFC Singles for Christ, actively served in Camp Bagong Diwa. (Andrelene Veloso)
