Introduction

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!

 

What We Do

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.

You can definitely look forward to more of such activities in the upcoming AY!

 

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! :)

 

Volunteers' Thoughts

  • By Charlotte, Chairperson (Internal)

    “My time in CSC saw me grow into a more open-minded and empathetic individual. Having the opportunity to interact with the beneficiaries and other like-minded volunteers made my time here memorable and fulfilling. Furthermore, interactions with the beneficiaries have also helped me to improve my interpersonal and mentoring skills.”

  • By Bryan, Treasurer / Secretary

    “Participating in SO-NUS allowed me to grow in character whilst serving a worthy cause. I became less shy and learned to care for our Athlete Leaders. I enjoyed our outing at Botanic Gardens as everybody worked together to complete various challenges. It was a refreshing change from Zoom sessions!”
