Youth & Children Programme

Tuition With Love @ Kampong Glam & Tampines North

With a heart to mould our next generation, Hope Centre (Singapore) launched Tuition with Love in 2012 at Kampong Glam CC and in 2016 at Tampines North CC, for Primary School students from low-income families. Through this programme, we aim to provide holistic assistance to our students through academics, life skills, and character development.

Our dedicated and committed volunteers mentor up to 3 students each, allowing us to provide personal attention to each child. In this manner, our mentors closely monitor the academic, emotional, and social needs of their charges by motivating and befriending them. By working closely with staff and parents, this relationship affords them unprecedented insights to the behavioural and academic developments of each child.

ABOUT U_SPACE

U_SPACE by Hope Centre, located at the void deck of Block 466 Crawford Lane, is an after-school drop-in centre for the youths and children of Kampong Glam. Officially opened on 15 August 2015 by the Mayor of Central District, Ms. Denise Phua, the centre serves to counteract the myraid of unfavourable conditions these young people might be facing in life. By providing them a conducive environment for learning and growth, we hope to encourage and spur them to reach their fullest potential.

More than just a cosy hangout spot, U_space hosts a number of volunteer mentors who will engage and train beneficiaries in a broad spectrum of activities such as education, sports, the arts, and even guitar lessons. These activities serve to improve self-confidence, promote meaningful friendships, and bring about positive changes in their lives.

Launched in May 2014, our Soccer B’Ole football program aims to engage youths and children living in Kampong Glam. Featuring both male and female teams, sessions take place on a fortnightly basis and accommodate around 10-15 children and youths each session.

Beneficiaries can expect to pick up important life lessons such as teamwork, perseverance, and leadership development from the many volunteer mentors who run the programme.

Our ‘HD (Hope Dance) Movement‘ dance programme, launched in 2014, aims to engage the youth and children of Kampong Glam. Sessions are conducted on a monthly basis by our Dance Mentors, who are passionate and invested in mentoring the next generation of dancers.

After each session, beneficiaries will be encouraged to reflect on what they have learnt such that they may gain unique insights into themselves. Through this relationship, our Dance Mentors will empower them to teach and guide their peers through project-based performances, such as Recreate Recital, Breakfast With Love, and the opening ceremony for Hope Centre’s very own U_Space.

dreamPACT! BURSARY AWARD

Launched in 2003 by Hope Centre, dreamPact! Bursary aims to enrich the lives of underprivileged students. Beyond providing just monetary and academic assistance, we believe that placing a greater emphasis on the development of soft skills, for both them and their families, will result in greater, more desirable outcomes for all parties involved. Over the years, we have initiated events spanning a wide range of topics, such as dance, singing, wushu, wealth management, and speech and drama courses.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, dreamPACT! Bursary Award will be cancelled for the year of 2018. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
