SO-NUS is a Regular Volunteering Programme which works with athletes with intellectual disabilities. In collaboration with Special Olympics Singapore (SOSG), we facilitate fun bonding activities and workshops under the Athlete Leadership Programme!
In AY20/21, we held an Amazing Race at the Botanic Gardens, where our volunteers got a chance to bond and interact with the athletes from SOSG!
We also held a Virtual Mini Camp, which comprised of workshops on financial literacy and mental health care. These workshops were even planned by our very own volunteers! Through this camp, our volunteers got closer to the athletes that they were paired with, gaining a better understanding of their various interests and needs.
Our overarching goal is to aid in the holistic development of our friends with intellectual disabilities and to foster healthy bonds between beneficiaries and volunteers. Moreover, we hope to dispel negative attitudes and celebrate our common human spirit!
If you are a like-minded individual that has the same passion and goals as us, we gladly welcome you to SO-NUS! :)
