  • Have you heard of the Eldercare Cluster's flagship event - Senior Savvy? Due to the various restrictions, we were unable to host a physical event last year... But we are back with a bang this year - with Virtual Senior Savvy 2022!

     

    Join us for a virtual one-day event with workshops conducted by partners such as Team Strong Silvers (TSS) & Diverse Abilities Dance Collective (DADC), talks by partners including Viriya Community Services & Dementia Singapore, and to round off the day - join in an exciting panel session for everyone to gain more knowledge about the eldercare volunteering scene and the road ahead!

     

    This is an event opportunity that aims to raise social awareness for your learning and development. No community service is involved; hence service hours will not be awarded. This opportunity to brought to you by Youth Corps Singapore Eldercare Cluster.
