Volunteer for YMCA Proms @ the Park 2018

Through YMCA Proms @ the Park, YMCA seeks to promote corporate social responsibility by matching corporations with voluntary welfare organisations for an outdoor concert and picnic, with the aim of bringing cheer to the beneficiaries through various performing arts and interaction with volunteers in a carnival-like setting.

YMCA Proms @ the Park also allows corporations to experience corporate volunteerism by mobilising their staff to volunteer for a day to serve the less privileged.

Prior to the festivities at the carnival grounds, the volunteers will tour the respective VWOs which their organisations are matched with to gain a better understanding of the needs and challenges faced by the beneficiaries.

Each participating corporation/individual volunteer will be ‘partnered’ with a Voluntary Welfare Organisation (VWO) on a one-to-one pairing in befriending and aiding the beneficiary to enjoy the programme and experience essential social and mobility skills through the social integration opportunity that the event avails.

Date: 21 July 2018, Sat

Time: 2-7pm

Venue: Bay East Garden – Promenade Lawn

Event highlights: Stage performances, carnival games
