This time as I share volunteer opportunities I’d like to urge you to question the reasons behind you may want to do them, because lately I was asked about the signifiance of giving, offering service and to me, the purpose in mind with which we promise commitment to giving is important because herein lies the learning that we achieve through the giving.
I’m still getting my thoughts together on that so I’ll share another time, but maybe you could get thinking too. Or if nothing comes to mind, the experience might be the first step to a better understanding so sign up now! –
1 Befriending Through Tutoring by Beyond Social Service
Beyond Social Service – There are many children and youth within our community who could use an adult friend to listen to them as well as provide guidance. Many of them also require help with their school work. We are seeking volunteers who can commit to a weekly tutoring session, one-on-one with a child or youth, with a view to building a friendship with the child/youth.
Location- In one of our communities – Redhill, Henderson, Bukit Ho Swee, Whampoa or Ang Mo Kio. Meet at the child’s house, void deck or nearby CCs.
Commitment- Weekly commitment for at least 6 months
