Youth Corps provides one day or short-term opportunities for youths who wish to try out volunteering in the different sectors. You can participate in community service events organised by Youth Corps and our community partners at common spaces such as void decks and parks, under our newly launched Common Space for Common Good (CS4CG) initiative.
Youth Corps also organises its signature event, Youth Corps Service Week, every March. It is an island-wide community service to rally youths to volunteer. Volunteers do not need prior skills as Orientation and Trainings will be provided. In March 2018, over 1,500 youth volunteers impacted the lives of 1,200 beneficiaries over 7 days of service island-wide.
There’s something for everyone! Sign up as a Member and start volunteering today.
Regular service programmes provide regular interaction with a specific beneficiary group. Youths have the opportunity to deepen their skills and knowledge in that particular sector and thus, will be required to commit for a period of at least 6 months.
