Beyond Social Services
Closing date: 31 Mar 2019
Number of sessions: 11
As a Volunteer Mentor(VM), you will be befriending underprivileged youths from ages 13 to 17 through photography and other activities. You will be working in a small mentoring group with 2 other VMs and 5 youths; you will be tasked to plan your own outings with the youths outside of the program in order to engage them. Part of the program is also to inculcate some financial literacy so that the youths can learn and hopefully grow to get out of the poverty cycle.
Trainings for photography skills and financial knowledge will be taught to VMs before program starts. VMs are also expected to help out with door knocking to recruit youths into the program. Project Snap aims to be a regular running program and s this is a pilot program run, VMs can expect to join and lead subsequent runs of the program.
