Pines City Colleges consider service to be an integral part of its mission. It is the aim of the school that all staff, faculty and students will incorporate community service in their professional and personal lives. Hence, Extension Office had formulated the institution’s community service roadmap through Project ANGEL. Being itself, Angel is a bundle of God’s ever present love and grace. An Angel has been created to serve, love, hold and support those to whom it is assigned. According to Steliar, Angels are the essence of love and service. A Guardian Angel is a being that is dedicated to serve and to help. The Project ANGEL will define the direction of the community extension program of Pines City Colleges. Project ANGEL stands for

Pines City Colleges (PCC) staff, faculty and students will then be called as “Angels in Green” since the official color of PCC is green. It is hoped that through this project, the institution will continue working to expand and strengthen the community services program that will cater to the needs of the community.
“A center for holistic community extension services in the Cordillera where stakeholders are committed to life-long community service.”
The community extension programs of Pines City Colleges will not just focus into one or two needs but rather into the holistic needs of the community such as green and clean environment, education, health and livelihood. The program will be wrapped up into one and will be called as Project ANGEL.
“Committed to assist PCC to achieve its vision and mission by introducing, exposing and training students and faculty to conduct community extension undertakings and instill in them the zeal for service.”
The extension office of Pines City Colleges will fulfill its mission with a commitment to promote the connection between academic learning and community service. It is committed to embed to the culture of PCC the passion for service, that service is inherent to any profession and together with success is the responsibility to reach out, to share the knowledge, time, skill and resources to mankind especially to those who are in need.
