Highlights

What is this program about?

This program is initiated by a group of people who is passionate about giving back to society and who wants to make a difference to youths who are often neglected by their community and marginalized by the society.

Therefore, we are targeting our efforts on under-motivated youths from diversified backgrounds. Amidst their behavioral issues and school warning letters, we want to be able to guide and influence them to make a more informed choice on what they would like to do after their major examinations.

What we want to achieve?

We hope to see youths being empowered to make better life choices and have their life quality improved as a result of this holistic program.

We also want to see
parents, guardians and teachers growing deeper in their understanding of their children hence forming stronger relationships with them.

Brief program outline:
This is a 1-year program, running from January to December 2018.
