There are two parts to the SWA – the Discovery Workshop and a Voluntary Service project.

The Discovery Workshop exposes young people to global issues that our Earth and Country are facing using an experiential model – to ExploreRespond and Take Action.  Apart from raising awareness on our communities-at-large and rich natural heritage, the workshop seeks to equip youths with development, facilitation, and planning skills in preparation for their Voluntary Service projects.
