A Walk To Remember (Round 7)

PlayBook

PlayBook is a sport-based English curriculum developed by Team Five Minutes alongside SportCares and Youth Corps Singapore, to improve the language skills and comprehension abilities of youth when conversing in English. We use sport-based content and activities to make learning more accessible to these youth.

The youth from Henderson may come from underprivileged and at-risk backgrounds. As such, they may not receive equal opportunities for growth and mentorship as another average youth. On the language front, they might often be much more fluent in street lingo, but less apt to use English in other more formal contexts, necessary for their entrance into society after school. These youth have a need to develop a greater amount of confidence and this could be a way towards social inclusion.

This programme is about making learning accessible to these youth, by harnessing sport as a platform and means to pique their interest and grow their capacity for language use outside of sports or street lingo. Through this programme, Playbook seeks to inspire a greater desire for learning as well as grow in character values, confidence and communication abilities for these youth.

The Red Box

Set in the heart of Orchard Road, The Red Box is a place for youths to gather, exchange ideas and take action to make Singapore a better home for all. Its name draws inspiration from the red box of Singapore’s Founding Prime Minister, Mr Lee Kuan Yew. It represents the late Mr Lee’s love and conviction towards creating a better Singapore.

The Red Box is open to all Youth Corps Members to ignite positive change in our community. Look out for various enrichment and engagement sessions at The Red Box.
