Beyond Social Services
Description of Organization
Beyond Social Services is a charity dedicated to helping children and youths from less privileged backgrounds break away from the poverty cycle. We provide guidance, care and resources that enable families and communities to keep their young people in school and on track to a brighter future.
We help nurture a positive environment where children and youths feel a sense of belonging so they don’t feel the need to turn to negative influences. Like creating a culture of learning through educational and development programmes and linking their caregivers to job and training opportunities.
So far we’ve reached out to over 10,000 rental units in government rental blocks in Bukit Ho Swee, Lengkok Bahru, Henderson, Whampoa, Ang Mo Kio, Lavender, Stirling, Jalan Bukit Merah and Ghim Moh.
Intended use of funds through the YFC 2022 programme
Funds will be used to support the running of all programmes in Beyond Social Services.
Engaging and involving the YFC participants
Beyond will endeavor to provide opportunities for the YFC teams to have meaningful interactions with the children and youth we serve through online meetings. We would be more than happy to have physical interactions and activities if circumstances were different. An orientation to introduce Beyond to the YFC teams will be conducted before the planning and implementation process. As has been done in past YFCs, teams will be able to check in with their mentor in Beyond via Whatsapp chat groups to enable quicker responses.
