Job Week Launch 2023

Scout Units from across the South Area came together to support this year’s Job Week launch, and it was a roaring success! 🎉 Our very own Chief Scout, President Halimah Yacob, officially kick-started the Annual Job Week at the NTUC Health (NTUCH) Nursing Home in Jurong Spring. What an honor! 🙌

💙 Our dedicated Scouts spent quality time interacting with the seniors and lending a helping hand to the amazing NTUCH healthcare workers. From assisting with housekeeping tasks to brightening up the residents’ day, our Scouts left a positive impact wherever they went. 👏

🌱 Embracing the theme of this year’s Diamond Jubilee Challenge, which revolves around the environment, our Scouts went the extra mile. Together with the seniors, they creatively crafted photo frames using recycled materials. How awesome is that? 🌿♻️

🤝 The Job Week is not just about jobs, it’s about nurturing our Scouts into self-reliant, responsible, and active citizens. By engaging in various tasks within our community, we aim to instill the values of dignity, honesty, and compassion in our Scouts. They become better citizens, more confident individuals, and effective communicators. 💪🏠

💡 But here’s the exciting part: YOU can make a difference too! We invite you to take an active role in guiding our Scouts during Job Week. Your guidance and support can have a tremendous impact on their journey of personal growth. Together, we can empower the next generation of leaders! 🌟🤗

🗓️ Save the Date! This year’s Job Week will run from May 19 to June 27. Over 10,000 Scouts, aged 8 to 18, will be knocking on doors across the island, offering their assistance in exchange for donations. Let’s come together as a community, support our Scouts, and make a positive difference! 💙🤝
