Spreading Good Vibes, One Card At A Time.

Volunteering with HYGM.

Our volunteers hand write and decorate each and every card with love to seniors residing at our partner beneficiaries

Occasionally, we have card distribution events where volunteers come down to personally deliver the cards to seniors staying at their own flats.

These distributions provide volunteers an opportunity to interact with seniors and get to know a little more about them. With the aim of reducing social isolation among seniors, we hope that these interactions can enable our volunteers to learn to reach out and care for seniors around them.

Other than our usual volunteer sessions and distributions, our side-project, Scrapbook Edition,  encourages volunteers to personally head down to our partner nursing homes or senior activity centres and interact with seniors there. During the course of the program, volunteers are attached to a senior and together, they will co-create a scrapbook. Our scrapbook functions as an icebreaker to provide an avenue for meaningful conversations. This enables volunteers to build friendships with a senior and possibly form long-term relationships with them. Volunteers in Scrapbook Edition engage with seniors for a minimum of 4 sessions over the course of 1-2 months depending on our partner organization. The end-product of the personalized scrapbook serves as a physical memento for the senior to keep and reminisce.

FAQ.

You can volunteer with us! Our team is always looking to expand our volunteer base. Activities include making cards with other volunteers, or contributing your skills such as designing, drawing or dancing! Click here to learn more and sign up to be a volunteer with us!

Due to the high volume of sign-ups, it takes awhile for us to process each application! We usually process volunteer applications once a month.

As Telegram is our main medium for volunteer announcements, please download Telegram and send us your telegram username e.g @herberthygm. It is difficult for us to coordinate on other platforms, we hope you understand!

First, please seek approval from your teacher-in-charge that volunteering at HYGM! is a VIA activity that aligns with your school. We would like to clarify that HYGM! is NOT a charity organization. We are a non-profit ground up initiative. While we are able to provide an official documentation of your VIA hours spent volunteering with us, it is ultimately the school’s decision to approve this documentation. 

 

In addition, if there are any school forms that require our comments/feedback for your VIA submission, please hand it to us during our  volunteer sessions.

We will provide VIA forms for you when you come down to our sessions. Alternatively, you can also print out the form here. 

Please do not lose this form as it will be the main record for all your hours. At the end of every volunteer session, approach any one of our committee members to endorse your hours.

Unfortunately, as there is no proper form previously to document your hours, we are unable to officially validate your past contributions.
