Apply Learnings To Real Problems, Real People
Had enough of theory and textbooks? Want to have authentic experiences, stay relevant yet impact future generation and create actual changes that are not limited to Singapore? Empower is the programme for you.
Empower seeks to expose budding social entrepreneurs and serves as a starting ground for design thinking enthusiasts to ace in problem-solving. Teaching others and sharing your skills, knowledge and experiences helps to retain and reinforce your own skills and knowledge. This enables you to not only help the wider community but also discover more about yourself in the process.
Together with Bamboo Builders' Project Leads, we will expose and nurture rural youth to become confident leaders that in time to come, will initiate change in their community. Through a 10 day program, you will guide these youth through creating community projects of their own, make international friends, and explore local haunts!
