Youth Charity Society

Youth Charity Society (YCS) is a student-led volunteering club enthusiastic about reaching out to isolated individuals in our community, with efforts to encourage more young adults to volunteer. We aim to create a comfortable and welcoming space for youths to share experiences and skills acquired through volunteering with us. As we offer a range of volunteering activities, both online and offline, our volunteers have plenty of opportunities to participate in our events no matter the circumstances.

Some opportunities that we offer include working with large not for profit organisations such as SecondBite and Sacred Heart Mission. We also engage in fundraising, with bake sales being conducted on campus to raise funds for notable organisations such as the Kids with Cancer Foundation and RSPCA. Moreover, some of the online events we have held include Letters to Elderly and 3Rs (DIY crafts). However, this is just the beginning of what Youth Charity Society offers!

Volunteering hours are recorded and certificates of appreciation are presented. We also give volunteers an opportunity to complete their Leadership in Communites Award (LiCA) hours.

So don’t hesitate, join us to gain valuable experience and opportunities to engage with the community around us! Please contact us on youthcharitysociety[@] and stay tuned to our social media for our exciting events!

Club Aims:

  1. To provide a space for compassionate students and volunteers to unite together, socialise and share experiences.
  2. To organise events to stimulate fellow students to volunteer or participate in community work, and also organise fundraiser events.
  3. Link students to Charities: to cooperate with various volunteering and charitable programs to introduce students to wide variety of community services. Students will not be limited to a single organisation but will have a variety of opportunities to choose from.
