Introducing: BP-NP Mentoring Club, Ngee Ann Polytechnic
Beyond developing the youth in our care, we believe in grooming young changemakers amongst students who have a heart for the community. Our valuable partnership with BP-NP Mentoring, Ngee Ann Polytechnic’s Community Service Club, has provided us with a dedicated pool of student volunteers who have led homework supervision and fun learning sessions twice a week in Melrose Home. It has been heartening to work alongside passionate students and observe their growth into committed and caring mentors for our children.
Comments from volunteers:
“My volunteering experience has allowed me to see how different children learn and how to manage them differently. My time at Melrose has allowed me to bond with the children and I’m happy to see them improving, which makes me feel that I am making a small difference in their lives. When I see children trying their best, it reminds me that I should try my best too. – Hui Ning”
“My experience in Melrose has helped strengthen me from the core as a person and appreciate volunteering and kids of less privileged backgrounds. I hope the kids excel in what they aspire to do and grow up to be well-rounded individuals and appreciate the great work and efforts put in by the Melrose staff and hopefully for us as mentors. – Meena”
