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 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 values, and relational skills.

You will…
– serve as a trusted friend and role model
– build on mentee’s character and strengths
– look out for teachable moments
– reinforce learning from programme activities

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

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

The next Orientation & Foundation Programme is on 17 November 2018 (Sat), 9.30am to 1.00pm at the LCSS Activity Centre (Kallang Leisure Park, #04-07). So hurry and sign up by 15 Nov (Thu)!

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).
