Description of Organization

“Our Mission is to help vulnerable children & youths find direction, hope, and success.

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.

We firmly believe in focusing on prevention through empowerment. With this whole concept in mind, CARE adopted an upstream intervention and strategies which means we start by implementing preventive measures from young. One such programme is Uth Power,
a comprehensive motivational support programme that involves weekly life-skills lessons, after-school engagement, risk and needs assessment, counselling therapy, socio-emotional guidance, leadership development, mentoring, and school and family engagement. Uth Power! helps promote mental wellness, facilitate mindset shifts and life-changing experiences built on positive relationships.


Intended use of funds through the YFC 2023 programme

Funds will go to where they are most needed, they will be allocated to areas with deficits to free up funds for other ongoing/new projects. Some of our programmes include our mental well-being helpline, Hear4U and Girl! Power programme, a year-long programme that guides young girls towards a better future through deeper appreciation of their own body and mind.


Engaging and involving the YFC participants

To allow the YFC teams to understand our mission, we can have a sharing session with them to explore their rea of interests. Further, we can get them to involve in our works where we see fit. For instance, we can explore the possibility for the volunteers to be part of our mentoring team.
