Protective Behaviours for Children (PBC)
PBC aims to equip children with knowledge and skills to keep themselves safe. Through experiential activities, children are empowered with the rights to feel safe at all times and to talk to someone they trust about anything. Core concepts taught include emotional literacy, early warning signs, safety continuum, safe and unsafe secrets, safety network, and assertiveness.
Tweens Club @ Sengkang (TCS)
Tweens Club @ Sengkang (TCS) is a weekly academic coaching cum mentoring programme for children aged between nine and 12 years old. It provides children with one-to-one support in their studies and teaches life skills through positive role modelling and activities that seek to build character and resiliency in children.
Teen-Edge Club (TEC)
Teen-Edge Club (TEC) aims to provide a positive and safe environment for youth participants to develop their academic, leadership and social skills. TEC recognises that youths, particularly those in secondary schools, are at the age where a positive age-appropriate mentor would benefit their social and cognitive development, and also recognises the youth's needs for autonomy to develop a sense of self.
Signposts for Building Better Behaviour
Signposts for Building Better Behaviour is a weekly parenting workshop that aims to help families prevent or manage difficult behaviours displayed by children. A follow-up support group is then held to provide a supportive environment for families to share their experiences and challenges in implementing Signposts strategies.
