JYC @ Children's Society is a community drop-in centre which focuses on engaging children and youth aged 9 to 18 meaningfully to develop their strengths, build their self-confidence and pre-empt a path of juvenile delinquency. In 2020, JYC hopes to reach out to 500 children and youth. Given the COVID-19 situation, engagement sessions are conducted via a mix of small group meetings as well as virtual sessions when the youth are unable to visit our centres physically.
A PLACE OF SOLACE
To others, JYC @ Children's Society may seem like a typical drop-in centre. However, that is not the case for 18-year-old Dave*. The Centre is his place of solace.
Dave* started coming to the Centre since he was 13 years old. The counsellors were always there during his darkest and happiest times in life, something that has always been missing from his family. The advice and comfort he receives, has led him to who he is today - a person with values and respect for others.
Make a donation to support JYC @ Children's Society. $500 will fund engagement sessions for 1 beneficiary for a year. Together, we can all move forward courageously and look ahead with hope.
