Strong Children, Strong Youths,
Strong Families, Strong Lives
What our volunteers say
Better to teach them to fish than to give them a fish. The English Immersion programme was initiated by a group of DB volunteers. We put our hands together to develop this Programme to help lower-income children get into the habit of reading and appreciating the English Language. To date, it has benefited more than 80 children from the community!
Being a mentor to my mentee has been as simple as spending time with a friend you care for. This has been a meaningful journey and a rare opportunity to give back, care for someone, offer guidance, play a role in helping my mentee achieve his eventual lifelong ambitions. Sharing this dream with EduGrow and Life Community has been amazing. This fulfilment I have received through volunteering is one that I hope more individuals in Singapore can come to experience for themselves.
We ran a series of workshops for the children at Life Community. My colleagues and I felt that we had learnt a lot from the children, as much as they did from us. Having been around much younger children for the most part of my teaching career, I was glad I had a chance to interact with youths in this workshop. Indeed, they are still children at heart and enjoy the activities we did with them and took to them with relish. It was a really interesting and fulfilling experience for all of us.
It was a fun and interesting experience for me. We conducted cooking classes for young children and youths, which was an eye-opener. It allowed me to experience working with students from lower-income families and gave me a better understanding of them and their situations. They are just as inquisitive and fun, just like every other child! Thank you for giving me this opportunity to work with your centre.
The team is so kind because they are really open for everything that you want to bring in. You also learn a lot from them and the session.
I have been volunteering at LCSS as a tutor to guide the beneficiaries with their studies on Monday nights. I truly enjoy working with these children and the experience has given me great joy!
