The COVID-19 pandemic has presented serious challenges to people's well-being, especially in rural areas. The significant economic impact of the pandemic has resulted in decreased income and increased unemployment rates in villages. Therefore, Community Service is a very important means to address this issue. This research aims to investigate how entrepreneurship programmes in the context of Community Service can improve village welfare in the pandemic era.The research methods used in this study are surveys, interviews, and secondary data analysis. Surveys were conducted in several villages affected by the pandemic, and interviews were conducted with community members and local stakeholders. Secondary data was used to analyse the economic development of the villages before and after the implementation of the entrepreneurship programme.The results show that entrepreneurship programmes in the context of Community Service can be an effective solution to improve village welfare in the pandemic era. The programme encourages village communities to develop small and medium enterprises (SMEs), such as agriculture, crafts, and services, which are able to survive in difficult economic situations. The programme also provides training and mentoring to villagers to improve their skills in managing businesses and marketing products.With the entrepreneurship programme in place, villages that have implemented it report increased income, decreased unemployment rates, and improved overall community welfare. The programme also helps villagers to adapt to new situations brought about by the pandemic, such as changes in consumption patterns and market demand.This research concludes that Community Service through entrepreneurship programmes can be an effective tool to improve village welfare in the pandemic era. The importance of cooperation between academics, government, and communities in implementing this programme to ensure its sustainability and success in the long run. It is hoped that the results of this study can provide insights and guidance for similar efforts in various villages affected by the pandemic.
