For YFCC participants from Singapore who are students at partner institutions

Look forward to another opportunity to act on what you’ll be learning at YFCC!

For the second year, World Vision Singapore is collaborating with Youth Corps Singapore on YEP-GO, a virtual initiative that allows youth in Singapore to continue volunteering with overseas communities during the pandemic through online Service-Learning projects without the need for travel.

After being introduced to the challenges that have emerged in different countries due to the pandemic at YFCC, you will have a chance to work in teams to develop and implement a 20-hour programme of online educational sessions for children and youth whom World Vision serves in Cambodia, the Philippines, or Vietnam. 

More information on YEP-GO can be found here
