You can play an important part in embracing an inclusive society and shaping societal attitudes towards ex-offenders and their families. You can contribute your time and energy by:
- Organising awareness activities to advocate the Yellow Ribbon cause
- Organising fundraisers to support the Yellow Ribbon Fund
- Volunteering with Yellow Ribbon for events and activities
- Volunteering with the Yellow Ribbon Community Project (YRCP)
For Yellow Ribbon Project, our volunteers are usually deployed for our YR events such as Yellow Ribbon Prison Run and other events initiated by Yellow Ribbon. You will be notified of any volunteering opportunities or programmes for volunteers once you are a volunteer with YRP.
This is a grassroots-led initiative whereby grassroots volunteers from participating grassroots divisions will visit families of newly-admitted offenders and refer them to available avenues of social assistance. Upon receiving the cases from Singapore Prison Service, the Yellow Ribbon Champion of the grassroots divisions will deploy grassroots volunteers to make the home visit. There will be training provided at Singapore After-Care Association (SACA) for interested volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering under the YRCP, your application would be forwarded to the grassroots division of the area you are residing in.
