How can I volunteer?If you would like to volunteer, please fill up our online application form https://friends.ygos.sg/YGOS/BCMain/formio.htm?formid=VolunteerApplication and we will contact you as soon as we can.
What is the minimum age to volunteer?For our mentoring programmes, you have to be at least 21 years old and above. For the rest of the programmes, we accept all volunteers above the age of 18.
How long would I have to commit to this volunteer role?We generally hope that our volunteers will be able to commit for a minimum period of 6 months to 1 year. However, we do have other projects and events catered to people who wish to volunteer on an ad hoc basis. If you require some flexibility, please feel free to email your concerns to firstname.lastname@example.org and she will be happy to assist you!
I would like to volunteer, however I hold a full-time job and I can only do so after working hours on weekdays or over the weekends. Are there any available volunteering opportunities?Unfortunately, we do not have any programmes that suit this time slot at the moment. However, you can keep a look out on our website or our social media pages (Instagram: @ygos_sg) to be notified when there are ad hoc volunteering opportunities!
