œ Volunteer Organizations in Singapore

Volunteering is one of the best ways to feel connected to a new place


you’ve moved to. You can make a personal impact on your new
community while meeting others and expanding your skills, knowledge
and experiences. When you volunteer you can…
œ Be a part of positive change in your new community
œ Learn about the new country and community you are in
œ Experience personal growth and instill a value of giving and
caring
œ Be exposed to (and possibly learn) a new language
œ Enjoy the social interaction while meeting new people
œ Create employment skills and pursue professional growth
and development
