Youth Corps Singapore

Our Projects

Project Y

The team felt that with Singapore facing aging population, there would be an increase in demand for elder care services. However, a lack of manpower in elderly respite care has led to their physical needs being fulfilled but not their emotional and mental needs. Thus, the project team implemented “Project Y” Yolden Programme, a volunteer programme for elderly befrienders. This programme recruited volunteers and equipped them with the necessary skills and gave them the opportunity to reach out to the elderly.

This project is part of Youth Corps Singapore’s Leaders Programme.

  • Lastly, on the event day itself, we will be requiring volunteers to support us by cheering the hikers on, handing out refreshments along the route as well as playing the role of heritage markers where you will share with passing hikers the history of these places that they have hiked through. 

More details regarding each of these activities will be advised closer to the date.

Please note that there is NO training on 8 Aug 2016. Once again, volunteers will be informed formally through e-mails when there are volunteer activities happening.

50cube 2016: Their Stories, Our Future

When we look at the Singapore we live in today, all this would not have been possible without the hard work of our pioneers. Their stories have paved the way for the future of our country.

Lee Ah Mooi OId Age Home is one of the two beneficiaries for 50cube. It takes care of 110 sandwiched-class elderly who have no caregiver(s) to look after them at home.

As a Volunteer Befriender, you will have the chance to interact with our beneficiaries at Lee Ah Mooi OId Age Home and find out about these interesting stories that have brought us to where we are now. During the visit, you will be able to join in various activities with the seniors where were planned by our fellow youth volunteer leaders. These activities could include Karaoke singing, origami making, and many other activities that will allow you to interact with the seniors. If you have any ideas about suitable activities we could do with the seniors, feel free to contact us and provide us with suggestions.

Sign up with us today to spend a meaningful afternoon with the pioneers at Lee Ah Mooi Old Age Home! :)

Walk for a Cause with ADA for World Mental Health Day

On 8 October, Alzheimer’s Disease Association (ADA), along with many other Volunteer Welfare Organisations serving beneficiaries with mental conditions, is bringing to you ‘Walk with Us, Stamp out Stigma'

50cube, in support of ADA, recognises that dementia is a condition that affects a large number of seniors and we are rallying youth volunteers to join us in this walk along Orchard Road to encourage passers-by to rethink about their perceptions and ideas of mental illness and the seniors who suffer from it. 

As a Volunteer Ambassador at this walk, you will take a walk down Orchard Road and encourage passers-by to join you in this walk. You will share with them about how mental health affects the seniors and  encourage them to join us at the event taking place at *SCAPE. Road marshals and signages will be lined along the route that Volunteer Ambassadors will take down Orchard Road. All volunteers will also be given a t-shirt from ADA to be worn on the day as well.

*Knowledge about mental health and elderly are not required, as volunteers will be briefed and informed accordingly before the event on the same day. In addition, there will be booths with activities held at *SCAPE and all volunteers are encouraged to join us at the event after the walk!

Do join us if you believe in creating a more inclusive and understanding society for individuals with mental health conditions as well as our seniors! Hope to see you there! :)

One Smile

Project One Smile aims to encourage the general public to show greater appreciation for our Pioneers. One Smile was conceptualised through the belief that it takes only one little action to make someone else smile. Our medium of choice is handwritten notes that would take us back to the days when people mostly exchange notes. The act of writing captures the essence of our emotions and we hope to make someone else smile through it! These notes are encouraged to be written in the theme of "Appreciating your Pioneers" and at the end of the event, bulletin board filled with notes of appreciation will be given to Elderly at Lions Befrienders as a gift.

So embark on this journey of making people smile with us!

“One Smile” is part of Youth Corps Singapore’s inaugural Youth Corps Service Week 2017.

Quiet Hour

Quiet Hour aims to create a conducive shopping environment for family members with autism and special needs. During this hour, sensory inputs are reduced - store lights are dimmed, store devices producing sound (e.g. escalators, in-store music, display TVs, PA system) are turned off, and shoppers are given a map of the store with pictures instead of words.

We launched our initiative during Autism Awareness Month back in April and the feedback that we've gotten from parents were amazing! This time round, we are back with our Quiet Hour Christmas Edition, on 16 December 2017! Do join us in bringing happiness and joy to their faces!

This project is a Pay-it-Forward Award (PIFA) project supported by Youth Corps Singapore. PIFA is available for youth leaders who have completed the Leaders Programme.

Team 8eyond Infin8te: Project World Change Starts with Education

Project World Change Starts with Education envisions a world in which all students have a chance of receiving premium education and are equally empowered by the means of doing so through computers.  We work with students and staff from Chun Nat High School, located at Kampong Cham in Cambodia, to set up a functional computer lab in June 2015 and have planned a feasible IT curriculum for them.  Armed with basic computer literacy skills, Chun Nat students have a greater capacity to aspire about their future study and career opportunities, as well as broaden their perspectives on world issues.

Different from other overseas projects which tend to focus on infrastructural issues, our project looks into the soft side of things – it is about transferring and imparting essential skills and values to manage a computer lab effectively, such as learning how to organise fundraising events to support the financial expenses.   This intensifies previous efforts of mere provision of resources for the school.

Join us if you believe in empowering others through education!   

This is a youth-for-youth project supported by Youth Corps Singapore.

 

Opportunities

Member

Closing date: 05 Jul 2017

As Chun Nat finds it increasingly challenging to manage over time, the sustainability of the computer lab is at stake.  We are currently recruiting volunteers to brainstorm ways to guide Chun Nat better and embark on an implementation trip scheduled from 10 to 20 December 2017 (tentative). 

The project would focus on three areas of work:

1)      Financial capacity: Chun Nat to source a self-sustainable method of fundraising its expenses incurred from running the computer lab

2)      Curriculum planning: finding ways to seamlessly integrate IT into their curriculum

3)      Tracking of students’ progress in IT skills: evaluating the usefulness of the computer lab in impacting students’ study and career opportunities

As this project is parked under NYC’s ASEAN Grant, we are looking for youth volunteers with ASEAN nationality (besides Singapore and Cambodia) to join us!  We hope to have like-minded ASEAN friends on board with us, so that we can all co-create an interconnected ASEAN community that is passionate about empowering people through education.

Note: This project opportunity is just to indicate your interest.  We would reply you once we receive your application here on the portal (as such there is no event per se on 15 July 2017 - it is just a signup deadline).  Thanks!

We Are Stronger Together

Seniors have knowledge and valuable life lessons to share, while youths possess knowledge of trends and technology. By bringing them together in a seniors’ space – Chinatown – we can promote an intergenerational exchange of wisdom and knowledge (on trends and active ageing). Over a meal in Chinatown Complex Food Centre/Maxwell Food Centre, seniors can share about their heritage, while youth can impart active ageing tips (healthy eating, regular exercising). Prompted by objects as they roam Kreta Ayer in an Amazing Race-esque activity, seniors can also reminisce and offer gems of wisdom, while youths share aspects of being a millennial, i.e. poses and mobile applications they use for photo-taking. This half-day event enables seniors to revisit a site steeped in heritage, and leave with new memories and knowledge on how to age successfully.

This project is one of the ad-hoc community service events that is part of Youth Corps Singapore’s “Uncovering Wisdom, Celebrating Seniors” theme from October to December 2017.

Together We Gaigai

Together We Gaigai is an event by YOLDEN (Physio) for us to give the seniors from Moral Home of the Aged Sick an opportunity to go out for a grocery shopping trip. Due to a lack of manpower and resources, this is something many of them haven’t had the chance to do after their admission to the home. As we age and become more dependent on those around us, something trivial like a trip to the supermarket becomes more difficult and rare.

Join us for an enjoyable day as we bring the seniors out on a trip to Kallang Wave Mall. As a volunteer befriender, you will get a chance to go shopping at Fairprice Xtra with the friendly and warm hearted elderly. Engage in nostalgic conversations as you join the seniors for a sumptuous lunch and learn more about the interesting lives they’ve led.

Come make a difference, and join us in this meaningful session as we bring joy to the golden years of the residents at Moral Home!

This is a youth-for-youth project supported by Youth Corps Singapore.

Together We Yoldenling

'Together We Yoldenling' is an event organised by Yolden (Arts) that promotes intergenerational bonding between youths and seniors as we embark on a shopping trip to NTUC at Bukit Timah. In our past sessions, we used arts as a platform to initiate conversations and improve the mental and physical well-being of the seniors. Some of the seniors at the nursing home are wheel-chair bound and are restricted in their movement and do not travel to further places. With available resources, we organise a fun shopping trip for the seniors.

Health and wealth is a commodity and so is old age. Join us in a day of fun and excitement where you'll engage in friendly conversations with the seniors, learn about their past and indulge in different arts and crafts activities during the open house.

This is a youth-for-youth project supported by Youth Corps Singapore.

Youth Corps Service Week 2018: Creative Hands, Curious Minds (The Peranakan Museum)

Bringing together heritage and youth volunteerism, Youth Corps Singapore is partnering with National Heritage Board (NHB), providing an opportunity for the youths to cultivate an inter-generational bonding with the seniors through their shared heritage experience at The Peranakan Museum. Through the event, the youth will be able to broaden their perspectives about seniors and the eldercare sector from underprivileged backgrounds. On top of that, this event also serves as a platform for youths to gain knowledge about Singapore’s heritage and hear interesting past stories from the seniors' lives. 

The Peranakan Museum tour with the seniors will consist of a gallery tour which goes through the Peranakan culture and history. From wedding beds and costumes to living areas of the Peranakans, volunteers and seniors are able to explore these cultures or reminisce the olden Peranakan times. The intergenerational bonding will also include making of Peranakan arts and crafts for the seniors to take home.   

This project is one of the ad-hoc community service events of Youth Corps Service Week 2018.

Valiant Hearts Appreciation Day

Come join Special Needs Cluster on a carnival with friends from Association of Persons with Special Needs (APSN) - Centre for Adults  

Calling out to all youths who are carnival lovers and interested to befriend adults with mild intellectual disability (ID), who are aged 17 and above.

Valiant Hearts is an event that hopes to provide a day of respite for caregivers of PSNs, rendering a platform for them to enjoy a fun day without having to worry about anything. Through the carnival, we also hope to spark conversations between our youth volunteers and families with PSNs, developing greater understanding on a caregiver’s daily experience. As such, awareness and empathy in youths for persons with special needs (PSN) would be instilled, through mutual interactions.

It may just be a mini carnival cum respite activities for the caregivers, but we hope that at the end of the day, everyone will enjoy themselves and walk away with at least one new buddy! Not forgetting the new knowledge gained as a result of the ongoing conversations with the caregivers regarding the special needs community.

YCS Special Needs Cluster is looking at recruiting volunteer befrienders, station masters, caregiver activities facilitators and volunteer photographer for the carnival, which will be held at The Red Box!

We call out to all like-minded youths to join us and get to know more about our friends with special needs.

What are you waiting for? Join us to Valiant Hearts today!

Together We Yoldening

'Together We Yoldenling' is an event organised by YOLDEN (Arts) that promotes intergenerational bonding between youths and seniors as we embark on trip to National Museum of Singapore. In our past sessions, we used arts as a platform to initiate conversations and improve the mental and physical well-being of the seniors. Some of the seniors at the nursing home are wheel-chair bound and are restricted in their movement and do not travel to further places. With available resources, we organise a fun trip for the seniors.

Health and wealth is a commodity and so is old age. Join us in a day of fun and excitement where you'll engage in friendly conversations with the seniors, learn about their past and indulge in different arts and crafts activities during the open house.

This is a youth-for-youth project supported by Youth Corps Singapore.

Other than regularly buddying the children, the big brothers and big sisters will have to form their own teams of 3 – 4 to adopt a playdate, where they will be in charge of planning and organising the activities for that playdate. Eg: watching movies & cartoons, sandwich making, doing simple craft or even having science experiment.

Commitment will stretch beyond the 10 regular sessions we are looking at  (Feb to Jun). When planning the activities, the big brothers big sisters are expected to meet in their own teams, and even to meet the caregivers/staff for a consultation session (if necessary).

*Volunteers from BBBS 1.0 & YCS Members who attended the sharing session on 24 Jan will be given priority

 

All Big Brothers & Big Sisters must commit to the compulsory training on 2 Feb 2019, 10.00am to 1.00pm.
