Volunteers play the biggest role in how effective we can be into effecting change.
We place much emphasis into training and equipping our volunteers so that they can play their roles effectively. There are no major requisites for becoming a volunteer. All we are after are individuals with big hearts and their unwavering commitment to their work. Come join us today!
Here are some of the programmes that you can be involved in:
Friends of Children
Voluntary befrienders play the role of a mentor and friend to the FOC children on a one-to-one befriending. They provide a tower of emotional, psychological support and academic support to the children during this transitional phase of their lives.
- Commitment of at least a year for the wellbeing of the child
- 6 hours monthly contact time with the child
- Attend a Learn & Share session for an introduction to the programme and preparation for the role
- Attend a Get-To-Know-You session to better facilitate the match of the volunteer to a FOC child.
We also need one-time volunteers for events like the FOC Christmas Party, holiday excursions and fund-raising.
