ABOUT U_SPACE

U_SPACE by Hope Centre is officially opened on 15 August 2015 by Ms. Denise Phua, Mayor of Central District Singapore. It is a youth centre located at the void deck of Block 466 Crawford Lane, which aims to engage youths living in Kampong Glam (and beyond) through a range of programmes.

Supported by Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) and the National Council of Social Services, U_SPACE reaches to the 4000 youths in Kampong Glam – about 12.1% of the region’s population. Some of these youths face a myriad of unfavorable conditions, which may lead to negative outcomes in their lives. Therefore, U_SPACE provides a conducive environment for learning and growth. We hope to encourage and spur youths to reach their fullest potential.

More than just a cosy hangout spot, U_SPACE engages and trains youths in the areas of education, sports and arts. Some of the signature programmes include DreamPACT Bursary Awards, HD Movement Dance, GoalKICK Soccer, Guitar Classes, Art Classes, Homework Clinic and Tuition With Love. These activities help youths to acquire new skills, improve self-confidence, develop meaningful friendships, instill a sense of belonging as well as bring about positive change in their lives.

Moving forward, U_SPACE will continue to engage, enrich and empower the youths of Kampong Glam and all over Singapore.

For referrals and enquiries on U_SPACE, please email Youth@hopecentre.org.sg or call 6348 5479 during office hours.

GoalKICK is a soccer programme launched in May 2014 for the youths in the Kampong Glam neighbourhood. With a strong focus on mentoring, developing character and leadership development, the programme aims to impart values through engaging youths through playing a sport they love.

Coupled with house visits and dialogue with parents/guardians, the mentors believes strongly in the saying ‘it takes a whole village to raise a child’.

The newly formed female soccer team has engaged about 8-12 girls since the launch in December 2015. More than having fun while playing sport, the girls learn important lessons such as teamwork and perservance.

As of 2016, there are around 28-32 children who attend these soccer sessions faithfully on a fortnightly basis.

For enquiries on GoalKICK, please email Youth@hopecentre.org.sg or call 3157 3943 during office hours.

HD (Hope Dance) Movement is a youth dance programme launched in 2014. Sessions are conducted by dancers who are passionate in mentoring and investing in the next generation. This programme empowers participants to help others in need through project-based performances. These performances include Recreate Recital, Fullerton Hotel Chrismas Light Up, Breakfast With Love and Hope Centre’s U_Space opening ceremony.

Character building, life skills and interaction with different levels of the community are emphasized, hence providing a unique opportunity for the participants to learn more about themselves.
