What is the minimum commitment required?

Most of our volunteering opportunities are service-based roles that involve high levels of interaction with the students and beneficiaries. Hence, we require volunteers to commit to a minimum of one school term at one regular timeslot, weekly (e.g. Every Monday 10am).

School Terms

Term 1: January - March
Term 2: March – May

Can I volunteer on weekends?

Most of our Service-based roles are in-centre sessions on weekdays only. From time to time, we may have Event-based volunteering and Skill-based volunteering opportunities. These opportunities may be limited; hence we seek your kind understanding if we cannot accommodate your request.
