Looking For CIP in Holidays Or Weekends

School terms keep kids in school and parents sane. Holidays can be boring to kids if they are left alone. Discuss vacation ideas and how to make good use of the free time for both children and adults.

I'm not too sure what you mean exactly by the term VIA. You can check out https://www.facebook.com/VolunteerNowww though if that's what you're looking for!
Thanks. VIA stands for Value In Action, it is the new term used to replace CIP.

Thanks, but I don't think my parents will feel very safe or comforted with me being overseas, and they won't have the time to come along with me. D:

NKF Volunteer Programme For for Social Science/ Psychology Students

Are you a student studying psychology or related field(s)? Does your school provide the relevant clinical internship/ attachments for you to build the necessary portfolio?
Although NKF does not provde internship/ attachments for social sciences students, it does provide an academic volunteer package for student volunteers interested in gaining the necessary exposure in related fields.

What is Mind Stimulation Activities (MSA)?
MSA is a form of activity that engages our patient to be mentally active. It follows the similar basic concept of Play Therapy. This programme allows our volunteers to ease into the befriending session with the kidney patients during their dialysis.

The Objective of MSA
MSA allows the introduction of fun and stimulating mental activities to aid our elderly patients maintain an active mind. It also allows meaningful volunteering sessions for our volunteers.

Why MSA?
Patients spend about four hours each dialysis session for three times a week at the Dialysis Centre.
Most wheelchair-bounded patients only leave their house for dialysis with nothing to do at home. Their cognitive functions may decline without any activity for them to exercise their minds.
MSA help volunteers to ease into the befriending session, allowing them to have meaning volunteering session at the Dialysis Centre.

How Does it Benefit the Volunteers
This programme is a good exposure for volunteers who are considering to work in a clinical settings in the future. Volunteers would be able to interact with patients at the clinical settings. Volunteers would also be equipped with many relevant skills that would benefit them outside of volunteering work.

Video Presentation

3. Understanding the Arts and Science behind happiness
4. Perform clinical para-counselling work using person-centred therapy
5. Create clinical therapeutic tools to stimulate the minds of the elderly patients
6. Know the various patient-centric programmes that are available

• Mind Stimulation Activities Practitioner Course – 4 hours
• Becoming a Better Volunteer – 3 hours

[Volunteer Groups in Singapore]
Dear Friends,

If you wish to volunteer your time and service but are clueless on what's available out there, do check out this list of Volunteer Groups that I have compiled (to the best of my knowledge, feel free to add). You can look through these Facebook pages to better understand the mission of each group, the activities organized and type of support required. The good thing about these groups is that volunteering is totally ad hoc and no regular commitment is expected, so you can actually go try once and decide if you want to go back again the next time round. Most of these volunteer groups are set up by some like-minded friends, ordinary people like you and me, who have the passion to give and make a difference to the lives of the less fortunate. Please do give them your support because they do not rely on funds or grants from the government or any sponsors, which makes what they achieve very admirable.

Hi parents,

May I know what's the minimum CIP hours all the secondary students need to perform every year?
Is there any difference between IP and non-IP students?
Or IP students can accumulate the CIP hours over the 6 years?
Do these Value In Action (VIA) projects who award CIP hours need to be endorsed/approved by their own schools?
Anyone experienced doing street sales but no CIP hours awarded, because their school is not endorsing the street sales?

Any recommendations to do VIA this June?
