What is Volunteerism?
Beyond Doing Good – It’s a journey of self-discovery and development.
At Loving Heart, we believe that every volunteering experience has much to offer beyond the intentions to do good. It is also a journey where volunteers can have a chance to learn at the community through their engagement with the end-users and various stakeholders. In the process, they also get to learn more about themselves and grow through participatory reflections.
They will also gain first-hand experience of the social sector on the ground and learn more about the sector. Most importantly, they get to build many meaningful connections with various like-minded people as well. At Loving Heart, a lot of our end-users are also volunteers. They participated in programmes and services organised by Loving Heart and at the same time contributes back to the community by volunteering. A lot of the programmes are also inter-generational by nature as we are a multi-service centre and is a platform where both youth and seniors can come together to interact and learn from one another.
Loving Heart was appointed as the first Volunteer Centre in Singapore by SG Cares Office in 2018. As a Volunteer Centre, we hope to be able to enrich every volunteer’s journey with us and share best practices models and resources for fellow Social Service Agencies (SSA) in the Jurong district. We believe in the power of the collective where all the SSAs can learn and grow from one another.
We are always on a lookout for volunteers to join in and make a difference in the Yuhua community! If you are innovative and need a platform to explore new ideas or kick-start projects, we are always keen to start on an exploration journey together!
