Shape a Child’s Life, Be a Mentor!

Every Saturday, the children will ask, “What time are the mentors coming?”

Do you love interacting with children? Want to make a lasting difference in a child’s life? Are you able to commit one-hour weekly (any day) for at least one year?

EduGrow for Brighter Tomorrows is a family-centric, early intervention pilot programme that seeks to provide holistic support for children (K2 to Sec 1) from lower-income families living in Marine Parade.

Through a community-oriented approach, mentors (like you!) are matched to these children, building on their aspirations, character, education, financial literacy and relationship skills.

You will serve as a trusted friend and role model, journeying with the child, strengthening and supporting him/her, and enabling him/her to have equal opportunities in life to break out of the poverty cycle.

To sign up or find out more, please call 6387 3700 or 9119 9854, or e-mail edugrow@life-community.org

Thereafter, a get-to-know-you session will be arranged, to help best match your personality and volunteering preferences to the needs of the children. And not to worry, trainings will be provided!

EduGrow for Brighter Tomorrows is a joint programme by Life Community Services Society (www.life-community.org/edugrow) and WeCare@MarineParade (www.facebook.com/WeCare.MarineParade).
