Intended use of funds through the YFC 2023 programme

One of the following:
– raising awareness of our elderly services
– promoting volunteerism and volunteer recruitment
– raise awareness on common issues of ageing and encouraging active ageing in community


Engaging and involving the YFC participants

I intend to invite the volunteers to my centre for a project discussion. Share with them on the intention of the project and let them brainstorm on what they would like to do. I would like to empower the team to take ownership of the project which means brainstorming from scratch, prepare project timeline, prepare materials and approaches to execute the project.
