We know you want to make a change.
of youths aged 15 – 24 years old engage in volunteerism.
As society develops, there are emerging social needs and gaps to fill.
Many youths are keen to make positive change and actively participate in service learning projects or engage in long-term volunteerism. Others may be too busy dealing with their own lives.
With the many commitments that youths often juggle, it is understandable that some people simply have no time to volunteer.
There are other ways to create social impact.
of youths aged 24 – 35 years old engage in volunteerism.
Let’s face it – as youths transition into young adults and start to build their careers, many youths stop volunteering because their priorities are elsewhere. With the impeding awareness of all the things we need to do – get a decent job, start a family, get a house, support the family – few youths have time and effort to spare to give back to the community. But what if we could change that?
The Social Apprenticeship Programme (SAP) connects youths with professional social change-makers based on their areas of interest.
Youths will have the opportunity for personal mentoring sessions with social impact-makers and to get involved in running an initiative.
We hope to inspire youths to create change in sustainable ways as guided by the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
