JYC @ Children's Society is a community drop-in centre which focuses on engaging children and youth meaningfully to develop their strengths, build their self-confidence and pre-empt a path of juvenile delinquency. Reaching out to children and youth aged 9 to 18, JYC's key objectives are to promote positive development, and reduce and prevent children and youth from engaging in risky behaviours. While the centre has temporarily suspended its operations due to COVID-19, we hope to get back into the swing of things once the situation improves.
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 of any amount to support JYC @ Children's Society. Together, we can all move forward courageously and look ahead with hope.
