Singapore University of Social Sciences
Team-Building & Social Impact
As part of the university’s drive to re-imagine its orientation process, we designed and ran a uniquely crafted programme for 600 undergraduates to explore social impact through the power of film. Participants learned the basics of filmmaking from award-winning documentarian, Dr Thomas Morgan, before heading out and working in teams to capture stories in the community!
Multiple Community Partners
In an effort to re-frame and shift how youth perceive marginalised communities, we organised a Learning Festival that celebrates capacity in all individuals; where beneficiaries contribute by teaching a skill to 300 youth participants. In collaboration with 10 community partners, students learned illustration with a deaf artist, poetry with a migrant worker, concrete crafting with youth ex-offenders, art therapy with a former nepalese prison child, theatre with seniors and others
Fairfield Methodist School (Secondary) Intergenerational Innovation
Young minds and wise minds innovate together with us!

Singapore International Foundation (SIF)
Social Innovation Workshop
International journalists from the region engaged seniors at our Intergenerational Innovation Centre to co-develop several products. In intergenerational teams, participants built electronic ferris wheels, roasted their own blend of coffee, and added to our community heritage wall by colouring Peranakan-themed magnetic tiles together. Participants had the opportunity to actively contribute to the development of these innovations and published articles to share their experience back home!

Together with the Ministry of Education, we envisioned our dream for Singapore with 200 students at the Uniformed Groups National Camp.

Majulah Singapura!
