There is an opportunity to catalyse Student Volunteerism 2.0 – we believe that social service-related volunteerism can be brought up to the next level which will give student experiences that let them see social service not just as a CIP requirement, but as a way of life.
iGlocal is an initiative to give Singapore secondary schools access to the deep experience of the United World College of South East Asia's highly successful Global Concerns volunteerism programme for secondary schools. It is a joint initiative between UWCSEA, the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre and the Lien Centre for Social Innovation.
This pilot effort has been guided and mentored by Anthony Skillicorn, who has over 25 years of creating meaningful social service and service learning opportunities for thousands of UWCSEA students. Participation in this project will enable them to learn about best practices that can be transferred into the context of the social service volunteer initiatives of local Singapore schools.
About the Schools
Teachers and students from 6 schools in the pilot project attended a workshop on 23 Jan 2010, where they were facilitated on techniques for developing community service projects. They were Dunman High, St. Hilda's Secondary, St. Anthony's Canossian Secondary, NorthLight, International School of Singapore and Global Indian International School.
This session will be an opportunity for these schools to share how they have crafted and executed their projects, and how they are doing their bit to change the world, an hour at a time.
Open to teachers and students interested in idea generation and discussion to move the social space forward. Please register by Monday, 23 May 2010.
