About Campaign

Team 4Ward, a group of youth aspirants participating in the Youth Corps Singapore Leaders Programme, is currently on a 6-month journey with Lakeside Family Services to make an impact to the community through our project, From Me to You, which aims to teach seniors residing in the Taman Jurong neighbourhood about smartphone usage.

Our objectives are to equip seniors with skills to adapt to mobile technology and utilise it to enhance their day-to-day activities and promote bonding within the community as well as through the different generations!

We will conduct workshops for the seniors, where we will cover basic smartphone functions and advanced features. Our team will enlist the help of youth volunteers, to empower them to use their skills to create a positive learning experience for the seniors and build meaningful relationships in the process. There will also be hands-on activities. We will bring the seniors out to let them practise what they have learnt during the workshops, building up their familiarity with and confidence in smartphone use.

At the end of 6 months, we hope that the seniors will achieve independence in their smartphone usage, and perhaps be inspired to teach their friends about smartphone skills themselves!

Your contributions will help us get the resources needed to support our project. As the donations are channelled to support the project, and not directly to Lakeside Family Services' general fund, the 250% tax deduction will not apply.
