AS A VOLUNTEER
We welcome all passionate, like-minded individuals to join us in making a difference! You may wish to volunteer as a volunteer mentor to serve in the mentoring journey. Our sessions range from once a week to once a fortnight, and take place on Saturday.
Or, join us and contribute in local planning/ organising! Let us know what your skills, strengths and interests are e.g. events organising, communications, graphics design, facilitation, etc. Every effort makes it possible for lives to be transformed and empowered, and dreams to be realised!
We seek win-win partnerships that will enable us in our work to empower the lives of the teenagers and local and overseas communities that we reach out to.
Feel free to drop us a line to discuss various possibilities, e.g. if you have a venue to sponsor for our events, internship/job opportunities suitable for teenagers, or books, medical supplies that will bring a smile to the overseas community. In return, we will certainly provide positive acknowledgement and publicity on our website and social media channels.
Your generous donation will go a long way towards supporting the transformation and empowerment of the lives we reach out to, in support of the teenagers we serve. Each teenager is fully funded for the entire 6 months initiative, and it is estimated that it costs about S$3,000 per teenager, including the local camps, activities, and for the overseas service-learning trip. This excludes staff costs.

Expedition Agape empowers youth who are facing challenges in their lives as leaders through supportive, life-transforming relationships with volunteer mentors over a 6-month journey of self-discovery and growth. The youth also go through a 2-week overseas service-learning expedition as part of the programme. This programme is provided free for the youth. It is a secular programme, which embodies values of Acceptance, Growth, Affirmation, Perseverance and Empowerment.
If you are from a voluntary welfare organisation and know of youth aged 13 to 17 years old who may be able to benefit from the programme, we invite you to get in touch with us!
