Description of Organization
Established in 1997, Children-At-Risk Empowerment Association (CARE Singapore) is a boutique charity that focuses on helping at-risk youths succeed in life. In 2010, NCSS recognized this and appointed CARE as a Centre of Specialisation for Youth Empowerment so that they can help raise service quality in the youth sector.
CARE’s work is a social investment that has impacted well over 30,000 youths. Our greatest achievement is in changed lives; affirmed by positive feedback from parents, teachers and principals as well as the many success stories we hear of our youths years after they graduated from our programmes.
Intended use of funds through the YFC 2022 programme
CARE depends heavily on donations and grants to carry out the work that we do. The funds raised would go towards our operational costs as well as our enrichment programmes for the children/youths we work with, such as our youth mentoring projects and family engagement sessions.
Engaging and involving the YFC participants
Our team will meet with the participants to get to know them in a two-way sharing session. We will share more about CARE as an organisation; this will entail an introduction to CARE, the youths we serve, past projects on which we have collaborated with volunteers on, and more. These are aimed at allowing participants to get a better idea of our needs and interest areas, as well as potential areas they could contribute to. Through this session, we hope that participants will be able to take away the importance of how their involvement can create a positive impact.
