Musmos Team Building Seminar (TBS) 2013!!


What more could be asked for then a weekend full of fun activities with your fellow Musmos volunteers? 

The Team Building Seminar was held last August 17 to 18 first at the Ateneo De Manila Campus then at the Alpadi’s Estate at Antipolo, with the theme following the enchanting world of Harry Potter. Rainy weather throughout the event meant

The seminar started off with some getting-to-know Group Dynamics and a little preparation, just in time for departure around noon. The afternoon continued with some parlor games and more Group Dynamics followed by some processing questions situated around the estate, and ended on a high note with an unprecedented GD where people had to reveal more of themselves, literally. The night then ended on a cool, somber note with more bonding activities, including a movie screening.image

The morning after was spent in a more relaxed manner, with some people going for a swim while others spent their time in comfort indoors. The event ended on a high note, with an awarding of certificates based on Harry Potter characters. After the trip back home to campus, spirits were still high and a well-deserved lunch was spent in Pizza Hut.

Congratulations to the Musmos TBS Team 2013 for the awesome TBS, and thank you to everyone who attended! Until next year :)

(2013 July 27 - Despicable Me 1 Film Showing)

Whether under the wide roof of the covered courts, or inside the quiet halls of the Ateneo, we as Musmos volunteers strive to make the children smile more. On this day of less play and more quiet time with the kids, we realized how children are able to focus on certain things, too, and that despite having young minds and innocent thoughts, they are able to recognize and appreciate the morals that are hidden under given circumstances. And as always, although it is always instilled in our hearts that we do all these things for the kids—to make them happy, to make them smile—each and every area ends with us volunteers feeling the greater happiness because of the kids. So as we reply to the kids with our genuine “You’re welcome” or “Walang anuman”, we also say, “Thank you, mga bata!” :)


The minions are back! I know you’re dying to watch Despicable Me 2! We will be selling tickets for the movie starting tomorrow! Do drop by at the Doghouse anytime for the next three weeks!

Musmos RecWeek 2013

Org life with Musmos is as colorful as these lego blocks. Why don’t you build your own adventure with our Musmos kids and our Musmawesome volunteers? Believe me, the journey will be more than memorable.

RecWeek 2013. June 24-28. MVP Roofdeck.

MUSMOS: 28 Years and Counting…

RecWeek is just around the corner! Musmos will definitely put meaning and color in your college life. Catch us this June 24-28 at the MVP Roofdeck. See you there! <3

I give you 10 reasons for joining our family:

10 out of ten times you look back and realize that you could have done much more.
9 lives is a luxury we don’t have so we’re making the most out of the
8 semesters of “magis” and “persons-for-others”.
7 days in a week to live it all out and we choose the
6th day to prove that creating man wasn’t such a big mistake after all, that
5 fingers are all it takes to lend a helping hand.
4 years of college will never be as fruitful and meaningful without those
3 hours in a week overflowing with riot-filled, eye-opening, heartwarming experiences within the
2 areas where a smile was, and will always be, the password; and all it takes is
1 organization: MUSMOS.



Watch out for the photos of the Open Areas! We really are thankful for all of you who shared your Saturdays with us!


Tips and tricks on leadership have been written in books, articulated by big bosses and formulated by professionals over time. Yet, one thing the project heads workshop taught me is that leadership is not learned by reading or hearing about it but by experiencing it yourself. The speakers from Ateneo Code could have just explained what team dynamics, goal-setting, initiative and accountability are; however, we understood before we knew it. How? Through the activities we went through ourselves – experience! Experience automatically brought out the leaders in us. |Nicole Patricia Nuguid, Project Head|
