SAF Volunteer Corps Starts Recruiting in 2015

Ever fancied serving alongside our men in the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) ?

Every able-bodied man and woman between the ages of 18 and 45 who is exempt from national service, will be eligible to sign up for the military volunteer corps.
The SAF Volunteer corps will be set up by the middle of 2015 and it will target , first-generation permanent residents and new citizens. They will serve alongside regulars and national servicemen.
Volunteers will be able to serve Singapore in two tracks:
  • Operations – guarding the Republic’s key installations like Jurong Island and crowd control during SAF-related events
  •  Specialist – applying their expertise in the legal, medical, psychological and maritime fields, among others.
Just like full-time national servicemen, volunteers will have to serve up to two weeks every year, for at least three years. They will also don the uniform and undergo a four-week course to familiarise themselves with operations and military culture.
Specific details about their training and whether they will receive an allowance are currently being worked out.
Acknowledging calls that new citizens and first-generation PRs fulfil National Service (NS) obligations, Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen noted that most people accept that it is difficult for those who came to Singapore late as working adults to serve.
He stressed that, “NS must be for a real and critical need to defend Singapore, neither tokenistic nor symbolic.”
Dr Ng added that it was because of this reason, that the Committee for Strengthening National Service (CSNS) had recommended establishing the SAF Volunteer Corps, to allow those without NS duties to contribute towards defending Singapore.

Camp Reconnection is a project initiative by Ren Ci Hospital, targeted at pre-university students.  NUS USP [National University of Singapore (University Scholars Programme)] is enlisted by Ren Ci Hospital to organise a 4-day camp with the objective of reconnecting the elderly and youths of today.  

 

Aimed at youth participants between 16 and 18 years old, we hope to raise awareness of the problems that beleaguer the elderly sector of Singapore, particularly on the elderly who require long-term care. The 4-day camp shall comprise a combination of theoretical and practical activities, culminating in an outdoor field activity with the elderly. Through exposing the youths to the difficulties faced by the elderly in their daily lives, we hope to stimulate their thought and compassion, helping them to better empathise with the older generation. Participants can look forward to an enriching line-up of programmes, including dialect lessons, sharing sessions, amazing race, obstacle courses as well as an attachment at Ren Ci Nursing Home for participants to have a first-hand experience in interacting with the elderly residents.
