Volunteer and Spark New Connections!
Looking for something to do this weekend with your friends or a special someone? Or perhaps it’s time for you to pick up a new interest! Check out some of these volunteering opportunities to get started. Have a great time giving back to the society while meeting like-minded individuals!
Be a Pioneer Generation Ambassador
The Pioneer Generation Ambassador Programme was set up in 2014 to carry out personalised outreach to our Seniors and their caregivers to explain the benefits of the Pioneer Generation Package. Be part of them and help them provide our Seniors a greater peace of mind about their healthcare. As a Pioneer Generation Ambassador (PGA), you play a big part in the movement to thank and honour our Pioneers who built Singapore.
During visits to Seniors, PGAs:
– Explain complex policies to our Seniors;
– Connect our Seniors to services and activities in the community;
– And where needed, help our Seniors apply for assistance schemes.
– Collate feedback on policies and schemes in making Singapore an elderly friendly society.
Be a Lion Befriender
If you have a soft spot for the elderly, join Lion Befriender’s island-wide service! As a befriender, you will provide social and psycho-emotional support to your befriendees (seniors) through weekly home visits. Together with other befrienders, you will help your befriendees age in place within the community and relieve their loneliness and social isolation. Be a Lion Befriender and meet other like-minded individuals while doing something that is meaningful to you!
