Actions really do speak louder than words. Volunteering your time can tangibly benefit other people. 

Not only does volunteering make a difference to the people around you, but you can also develop new skills while helping others.

Here is a list of volunteering opportunities for you to sign up for.

Become A Virtual Tutor

Education is key to breaking the cycle of poverty within a family. A good education can provide a promising foundation, as well as equip children and youths with knowledge and skills to improve their livelihoods in the future. Children from low-income families are at risk as they may face more obstacles in their journey to escape the cycle of poverty. This is where Kindlespark fills the gap.

Kindlespark is a platform that connects tutors that want to give back to society by providing pro bono tutoring, to students that require academic help. With an expanding list of beneficiaries, they could definitely use your help to aid these students and give them a better chance at education.

Sign up here to volunteer with Kindlespark.

Art can be a form of therapy and a source of comfort. Art therapy can enhance an elderly person’s wellbeing and reduce his or her stress.

If you are skilled in arts and crafts, this is an opportunity to lovingly engage seniors when you conduct a workshop. Depending on your expertise, workshops may include beadwork, watercolour work, floral wall art, sewing, knitting, or any other form of arts and crafts.

The SG Cares Volunteer Centres at Yishun works to foster community partnerships to strengthen the town’s effectiveness in meeting communities’ needs.

Get crafty with seniors and colour their day by signing up to volunteer here.

Non-profit organisations usually run on little resources and always need extra help to increase their presence in the community. Thanks to the internet, it is now easier than ever to raise brand awareness and spread your message using various media.

Be part of AMKFSC Community Services and support them by being their professional videographer to record interview sessions by volunteers or beneficiaries and combine them into beautifully edited video stories to promote them in the community.

If you are an experienced videographer and would like to use your skills to do good, volunteer here.
