Students from 5 polytechnics to help seniors as volunteers under pact with care agency
27 Nov 2023
Students from five polytechnics are set to get more hands-on experience in helping seniors age better in the community after their schools signed agreements with the Agency for Integrated Care (AIC). NYP, NP, RP, SP and TP signed memorandums of understanding (MOUs) with AIC on 27 November. Under the MOUs, AIC will make volunteering opportunities in community care settings available to students across different specialisations and years of study. The students will be able to get experience at active ageing centres and participate in the Silver Generation Ambassador (SGA) programme, where they will visit seniors in their homes.
