The Community Extension and Services Units aims to be the center of excellence for community engagement and service learning. With the intention of producing socially engaged graduates, the Unit manages extension programs such as iTam-Bahaginan, iTam-Makalikasan, iTam-Teknolohiya, iTam-Bayani, iTam-Kalinangan, and iTam-Kaalaman. Along with 17 partner communities, the Community Extension and Services Unit is charging the South with spirit of volunteerism and sociocivic involvement.
The community extension and services unit envisions to be the coordinating center of FEU Alabang to its commitment to socio-civic involvement by promoting community engagement and service learning programs that are research-based, socially relevant and sustainable.
We, the community extension and services unit, commit to assist FEU Alabang to become a community-engaged campus by inculcating the culture of service and volunteerism according to an education that is service-oriented and socially responsive through experiential education by means of Community Engagement Initiatives (CEI) and service-learning initiatives.

On the other hand, Community Extension Service Unit sees the need to provide avenues for Associates, Students and Alumni to help in mobilizing resources for our partner community not only in times of crisis or disaster and in fellowship during Holiday season, but also in sharing the College resources to our partners when needed.
Nature of the Program: This is an iTam way of sharing expertise of the College in the field of engineering and technology. This program is in line to the vision of FEU Alabang to be one of the top five educational institutions in the Philippines. The College provides opportunities to heighten the technological knowhow of our partner communities, school institutions and NGO’s to serve as major tool for development in this modern age of technology. The role of technology in community development is to give power and a voice to people within the larger ecosystem. It enables citizens to create a better future. This will serve as an ideal support system that can leapfrog community development programs, for the betterment of the society at large.
