Service Learning - Balram

Leader: Balram
Members: Terrence, Jee Hoon, Gregory and Kai Chek

Investigation Phase:

Identify The Community:
  • Students
  • Working adults (aged 21 to 70)
  • The elderly (aged 70 and above)
Sector Of The Community: Students

We will be focussing on the Clementi Community Center, located at Clementi Avenue 4.

Generate Community Challenges:

Resources Of The Community: 
  • Large student population
  • Many schools, and therefore, many opportunities
Community Challenges:
  • Lack of non-academic/skills-based knowledge 
  • Lack of courses teaching students new skills
Evaluate Community Challenges:
  • Urgency
  • Importance
  • Student Interest
  • Efficacy
  • Feasibility
  • Cost
  • Etc.
Identify Community Partners:
  • The Ministry of Education
  • Community Centers
 Community Requirements
  • Courses teaching students practical skills at convenient locations and times
 Service Opportunities
  • Organizing courses for students at Community Centers, in the afternoon
Establishing Baselines:

Baseline information is needed to track the degree of impact of the service at the end of the project.

There is a lack of practical and non-academic  knowledge among students in the afore-mentioned community.

After implementing the service project, we intend to expose these students to new non-academic skills.

Preparation Phase:

Goals and Objectives:

'goals' are broader, more general
'objectives' are more specific
'service' is what beneficiaries receive
'learning' is what service providers receive

Draft Community Action Plans
WHY: your service & learning goals & outcomes
HOW: how services will be provided/done
WHO: team members and community partners
WHEN: Specific timeline to work on
WHAT: resources needed
WHAT: indicators of success (i.e. service & learning outcomes).
