Calling for volunteers to be part of Project Rocket Boosters

Our primary goal is to improve the literacy levels of lower Primary residents living at Chen Su Lan Methodist Children's Home (CSLMCH). We believe that a good command of english language is the key foundation to future learning and hence, we will be transforming a corner within their hall (Shaw Hall) into a learning lab with monthly-themed exhibition and learning English in a fun way through a play (Alive, alive!).

You can invest in the children's lives by

  1. Facilitating the sessions of Alive, alive!
  2. Co-creating the learning lab with Team Sum

Commitment level: Minimum 5 sessions 

From 7pm to 9pm on the following Fridays:

  • 26th August
  • 2nd September
  • 9th September
  • 16th September*
  • 23rd September

(* On 16th September, volunteers are required to come down at 5:45pm to set up the exhibition with us!)

Venue: Chen Su Lan Methodist Children's Home (Near Serangoon Gardens)

FAQ:

Do I need previous volunteering experience to join this project?

Nope, we are looking for a willing heart to learn and love the children :)

Do I need to commit to all 5 sessions?

Yes, we are looking for volunteers who are able to commit to this project. Only those who can commit to all 5 sessions should sign up for it.
