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.
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.
