Information about MIRACLE 2008
The Malaysian Interactive Cultural Learning Experience (MIRACLE) PBOX 2008 is the annual project from LC UPM and it has been successfully organized and bought tremendous impact to our society for the past 4 years. For the past 3 years, our focus was on 5R issue (RETHINK, REDUCE, REUSE, REPAIR, RECYCLE).We aimed to instil 5R awareness among the public, specifically targeting the youths. This year, our theme will be “Environmental issue with entrepreneurship” We believe by empowering the youths with entrepreneurship as well as awareness to protect our environment, we can produce a generation of change agents to bring greater impact to our society and environment.

MIRACLE will run for 2 months during our semester break. It consists of a few main events as followed: 1) Integration Week Matched Interns from around the world will arrive. The main objective of integration week is to integrate the interns into local culture, educate them on the MIRACLE issue, brainstorm and plan all the upcoming events with the local Organising committee members!! By applying for integration week, you can learn to organise a bonding and planning camp which consist of more than 30 local members, and around 10 international friends! 2) Opening Ceremony & Closing Ceremony The “head and tail” of MIRACLE. Want to learn how to coordinate a formal event at places like Menara KL? You will learn to how to communicate with people from various walks of life , including CEO, VIP , interns etc. You will learn the correct formal event protocol and learn how to run it smoothly! 3) School Interactive Programme Since the target group of MIRACLE is youth, the interns will be sent and allocated at different schools in Klang Valley. You are responsible to contact and recruit schools to be participants in MIRACLE. you will learn to communicate, marketing and negotiate with people. Besides, you have to find local families to host our interns during the school programme.

4) MIRACLE Youth Conference (MYC) A 5 days 4 nights conference with delegates from all around Malaysia! Have you been to NLDS? Yeah, it’s as great as that! Your responsibilities include organising MYC (settling the hall, transport, accommodation, food etc). Besides, the whole MIRACLE team will assist you to do promotion and delegate recruitment around Malaysia! Cool right? 5) Community Home Service In order to reach out to the unfortunate ones in the society, this programme aims to allocate the interns at different community homes so that we bring impacts to the poor ones.
