The National Service Scheme, AVIT, Paiyanoor, was formed in 1998 under the University of Madras and it later came under Anna University, Chennai. In the year 2004 the NSS unit of AVIT was brought under the Vinayaka Missions University, Salem. In the year 2007 the University approved 3 units for the AVIT campus. Since then, the students of our college have been rendering valuable voluntary services to the society through various social welfare projects. The basic aim of such activities of the students is to work for the cause of the poor and to help foster the development of a spirit of socio-cultural interaction and service among students and people from other walks of life. The principle emphasis is on the fact that true education can be deemed complete only when the student's commitment to the society is fulfilled in terms of voluntary services for the betterment of the common man. At the same time, it has played the important role of introducing slow but concrete reforms in the slum and downtrodden areas in the locality near the campus. With the progress of time, the activities of the unit diversified and the area broadened. More emphasis was now laid on special camps and normal programmes involving interaction of other welfare bodies/ institutes.
Adding to the years in its programmes, the NSS unit has successfully organized various camps, awareness drives and medical checkup camps along with charity sales, and has always been an integral part of the co-curricular programmes of the college campus. But it is keenly felt that services cannot be rendered effectively and efficiently without the cooperation, guidance and blessings of the local civilians and other authorities, welfare organizations and other responsible and rational persons of society. Therefore, we appeal to all people having an inclination towards social work for their involvement in strengthening the present work force in continuing the work in pursuit of the noble cause. Under the guidance of our esteemed Pro-Chancellor, Dr. A. S. Ganesan, Principal, Dr. (Mrs). N. R. Alamelu and Program Coordinator, Dr. P. Selvam, the unit is constantly striving to attain new heights believing in the fact that " We can and we will make a difference ".
