EduGrow for Brighter Tomorrows calling for Volunteers

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 Ms Delia Pak at 6387 3700 or 9119 9854, or e-mail edugrow@life-community.org Thereafter, we will arrange for a get-to-know-you session, to help us best match your personality and volunteering preferences to the needs of our children. And not to worry, trainings will be provided! Closing date: 7 April 2017 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

Hand in hand calling for Volunteers

Posted by VolunteerSG Admin | Posted in Call for Volunteers | Posted on 25-05-2017


Project Hand in Hand is a community self-help programme supported by Temasek Foundation Cares. It aims to engage volunteers to bring preschool children (aged 3-6) with irregular attendance to school and/or back home, when the parents are unable to do so. As these children are often from complex family background, their parents often face difficulties to bring the children to school. As a result, these children lose out on the opportunity to benefit from the resources in school and face difficulties catching up with their peers when they enter primary school. You may find out more at our website: http://www.aeces.org/programmes-project/project-hand-in-hand/
We have an on-going recruitment of volunteers island-wide for the project and hope to be able to disseminate this information through different avenues so that we may reach out to as many children who needs assistance. Volunteers can either register their interest on our website, or contact me directly for enquiries. We will match the volunteers according to their availability and location. A token allowance will be given to volunteers in appreciation.
