• Youth

    ECSS believes in sowing seeds of positive impact into the lives of youths entrusted to our care. It takes many years for a seed sown today to blossom into a sturdy and beautiful tree. The essential ingredients of patience and unconditional love would facilitate a conducive greenhouse for the youths to nurture and find their identity.

    We do so through after school engagement (ASE) and youth outreach (YOR).

    After School Engagement (ASE) Programme 

    ASE is a drop-in programme for both primary and secondary school students. ASE aims to progressively develop tenacious grit and emotional resilience through both structured and unstructured activities. Our hope is to reduce maladaptive behaviours and increase coping abilities in these youths after a few years of engagement.

    Through fun and play, we build relationship and trust, facilitating a safe environment for youths gradually warm up and share about issues and difficulty they might be facing. It is also through unstructured activity, we often find many moments to inject life-skills, or highlighting their potential, giving us an in-route to identify and affirm. It is through these conversations personal stories are shared and values imparted.

    Youth Outreach (YOR)

    YOR is a social initiative using sports as an engagement tool to outreach to youths in Tampines as ECSS has existing work relationships with various schools located within the district and Tampines North Community Centre.
