Project YOUth Can Shine

The Project YOUth Can Shine (YCS) provides holistic help to families under CDAC Family Assistance Programme by guiding their lower secondary school children in their schoolwork and helping to realise their potential through exposure to build on their competencies.

Volunteers tutor and mentor the students during weekly sessions to support them in their schoolwork and organising activities to provide exposure and build competencies through experiential learning.

Families are supported through talks and workshops on parenting, healthy living and financial management. Family bonding activities are also organised to foster family cohesiveness and the parent-child relationship.
