We at NUSSU CommIT hold the belief that knowledge is meant to be shared. From that belief, we created ChariTEACH, a new initiative which kick-started in April 2013. It is a combination of IT training and community service, providing the participants an opportunity to learn and teach.
We believe that NUS students should be empowered with the necessary skills to spread their knowledge to those who are less fortunate than them. Hence, the event will be taking place primarily on two days; the Volunteers Training Day (11 March 2017) and the Beneficiaries Training Day (18 March 2017).
On the Volunteers Training Day, participants will receive up to 6 hours of professional training in IT software (Adobe Photoshop CS6). In addition to empowering them with the skills, we provide them with a channel to spread their knowledge to charitable organizations all over Singapore. Therefore, on the Beneficiaries Training Day in the following week, participants will be teaching the software to our beneficiaries for up to 2 hours followed by fun-bonding activities and a designing competition among the participants from beneficiaries. The organizing committee will also organize a fundraising event with the NUS volunteers in order to help obtain funding for the event.
Due to limited spaces, volunteers are required to deposit a total of $10, which will be returned only if the volunteers attend BOTH dates. This helps us to choose a dedicated team of volunteers to ensure success of the event.
We hope that through this event, we can become the impetus, the catalyst to a knowledge-sharing community in NUS. ChariTEACH is a meaningful project bound to provide both the participants and beneficiaries a fulfilling experience.
