Big Brother Big Sister

Closing date: 05 Jul 2018
Number of sessions: 10

Befriend, accompany & have fun with children & youth with ASD on our forthnightly playdates!

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  (July to December). 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).

*YCS Members and Leaders who attended the sharing session on 29 June will be given priority.

All Big Brothers & Big Sisters must commit to the compulsory training on 7 July 2018, 2.30pm to 6pm.

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.
