Heartware – Character & Citizenship Education Leadership Programme

The Heartware – Character and Citizenship Education Leadership Programme is a highly experiential programme that links secondary schools to surrounding social service organisations, and creates the authentic service learning experience. Students are trained to adequately diagnose community issues close to their hearts, and design sustainable projects to alleviate the problems.

From learning journeys and inspirational series, to community projects guided by trained facilitators, students will find themselves excited about outreach opportunities, engage in community problem solving, and empowered with skills to rally and mentor peers in sustainable projects.

Alternatively, selected students will be involved in a professional attachment with corporate organisations. The attachment, guided by mentors, offers students a glimpse of the authentic work setting and broadens their horizon on possible future vocations.

WHY HW-CCE LEADERSHIP PROGRAMME?

Education is a tool to driving social mobility

Healthy mix of engaging theoretical and experiential learning

Provides students with more vocational options that better fit their interests

Cultivates spirit for servant leadership and community engagement

Students under the programme will be continually engaged through volunteerism via Youthbank, in both national-level projects like National Day Parades and community outreach like Support Our Pioneers.

Heartware Academy

Heartware Academy encourages youth to learn practical skills necessary for volunteering, and pass their knowledge down to the next generation of youth volunteers in a self-sustaining cycle.

Heartware Academy features a multi-disciplinary network of trainers who are dedicated in developing youth volunteers and leaders through various training and knowledge sharing sessions.

In time, we envision Heartware Academy to be a regional training hub where individuals from all walks of life convene, working collaboratively towards improving volunteering practices and the lives of those we serve.

 

This programme is currently underway.
Volunteer recruitment opens again next year.

We Hope Volunteers Can:

Build the next generation of youth volunteers and leaders

Facilitate exchange of knowledge to improve youth development efforts

Establish international networks to facilitate exchange of knowledge
