Volunteer Recruitment – Stepping Out Tours

Empower Ageing aims to transform traditional concepts of outings into personalised excursions specially crafted for seniors with dementia.

Seniors will be meaningfully engaged and guided towards refreshing self discoveries while continuing to learn, develop and unravel their areas of strength from within.

Inevitably, these outings will improve their mental well being and overall quality of life.

If you are interested to volunteer, please contact darwina.azmi@proage.sg

Volunteer Project at Learning Sprouts Student Care

Do you have a passion for children? Interested in making a difference in their lives?

Learning Sprouts is offering an opportunity to you to support and empower children by developing their literacy skills!

Learning Sprouts is a student care and enrichment centre located at Our Tampines Hub that aims to help develop the next generation of citizens who will think critically, act responsibly and contribute meaningfully to the society.

The organisation works closely with the People’s Association to provide a holistic education to children (Sprouters) between 7-12 years old (P1-P6) from underprivileged and low-income families.

You will be involved in the Read and Write sessions, alongside passionate Student Care mentors, to help inculcate a passion for reading and build the literacy foundation of its Sprouters!

The Read and Write sessions take place every Wednesday at 3.00pm, lasting for an hour (or more).

For more information, or if you are interested to volunteer, please feel free to contact Lisa at 8766 6248 or email mentors@learning-sprouts.com

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).
