Volunteer Befriender

Closing date: 20 Feb 2017
Number of sessions: 1

As a Volunteer Befriender, you will be walking along the busy streets of Orchard Road in groups of threes to encourage the public to join us in our journey of making people smile. You will have the opportunity to engage the public by getting them to write notes of appreciations for our pioneer generation and pasting them onto a bulletin board which each group will be carrying. At the same time, you will encourage the public to be part of this initiative by passing on a gift and a note to seniors around them. Through this, One Smile hopes to encourage a cycle of giving and receiving where complete strangers are able to make one another smile through a simple act.  

Commitment required for the event would be on the event day itself, 12th March 2017, from 12.30PM - 5.30PM, inclusive of briefing. No prior experience required; just come with an open mind and have fun!

Who We Are

Youth Corps Singapore is a national institution that supports young Singaporeans who are keen to serve the community. As the champion for youth volunteerism, it harnesses the energy and passion of youths to ignite positive change in the society through community service.

Bringing together Singapore Citizens and PRs aged 16 to 35, Youth Corps Singapore provides a platform for youths to learn new skills and meet like-minded peers, who aspire to go forth and create a better Singapore and a better world for all.

What We Offer

As a Member of Youth Corps Singapore, you can make friends with people like yourself at various platforms. Whether it’s health, education, or environmental causes, we offer a diverse range of volunteering opportunities and events for our Members, from community service events to regular volunteering.

We provide relevant trainings where you can take your skills and knowledge of service-learning to the next level, and apply them to a project to impact the community. You will also forge greater bonds with fellow Aspirants, and enjoy exclusive perks. When you are conferred as a Leader, you get to continue to develop yourself, initiate community projects and rally your friends to join you on a good cause.

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.
