The principles of Service-Learning and Strength-Based (Asset Based Community Development) underlies our approach to instill a sense of civic mindedness and social responsibility in our students. We strive to engage the community and people in responsible and challenging actions for the common good. Beyond making meaningful impact to the community, SOGP also aims to develop students holistically by helping them uncover personal values and purpose, develop empathy, as well as acquire valuable skill sets and knowledge through reflection and mentorship from community partners and NUS Advisors.
The Seeds of Good Programme (SOGP) aims to support students who are interested in participating in a Community Learning Programme. In partnership with communities, the programme focuses on inspiring and enabling students to design and execute real-life community projects that bring positive and meaningful impacts. Key communities/sectors of interest of SOGP include: 1) children and youth, 2) vulnerable families, 3) seniors, 4) healthcare, 5) diversity and inclusion, as well as 6) environment and biodiversity.
