As part of the Community Engagement Programme, students can collaborate with an organisation of their choice and act on their sense of social responsibility to contribute meaningfully to society. Community engagement does not only benefit communities, but enhances and improves an individual’s overall wellbeing.
Beyond strengthening one’s sense of belonging and social connectedness, community engagement also help students develop pro-social values as well as a greater sense of purpose by being a part of and connected to something bigger than themselves.
"Being involved in the community has been good for my wellbeing as I was able to strengthen my social support network. I forged new friendships with peers who made me feel emotionally safe and encouraged me to talk about my feelings. Serving the community made me happy and allowed me to look beyond my personal concerns." - Chloe Quek
