Heartware Network Tuition Programme 2013 is looking for volunteer
tutors who are either studying at JC, Poly or Uni.

Heartware Network (HW), a youth charity established in 2000 with an
aim to inspire youth aged 15-24 to be proactive, innovative youth
leaders who think beyond themselves to engage and commit in the
community service and entrepreneurship.

HW Tuition Programme, a youth-initiated and organised project
introduced by student volunteers from Raffles Institution (Junior
College) in 2009. Over the 4 years, the programme has been
benefited and grown with many tutees and volunteer tutors. This year,
our Tuition Programme continues to touch more lives. Sponsored by
Maybank, the programme targets at underprivileged children in poor
families and whose parents are incarcerated to nurture their interest
in studies whereby providing them an opportunity to break away from
the personal vicious cycle. We believe that a sharing of academic
knowledge serves a valuable and practical way to care for the
children.

Currently, we are recruiting our volunteer student tutors, and we
sincerely hope that your students from JC, Poly or Uni are able to
volunteer with us in this programme to make a difference to the life
of needy children.

Interested students can sign up to be a volunteer tutor with us via
this link – http://youthbank.sg/Volunteer/Event.aspx?EventID=622

Do feel free to contact beverly@heartware-network.org should you have
any questions.
