By Raffles Interact
Service is in the little things – even the smallest acts of kindness hold the potential to have an immeasurable impact on the lives we touch. Raffles Interact isn’t just a platform for revolutionary service projects to take flight, it’s also an avenue for you to make a huge impact with these small actions. And all you need to do to begin this journey of service with us is to take that first step, to reach out to those in need, and to serve with your heart.
Whether your passion lies in helping underprivileged children or the elderly, Raffles Interact has you covered! Interactors are given the choice of which Service Centre they wish to volunteer at weekly. We partner a wide spectrum of organisations, ranging from MINDS to Sunlove Dementia Daycare; we even run our own homegrown Raffles Institution Mentorship Programme. Apart from this, there are ad-hoc volunteering opportunities aplenty: this year, our members lent their support to Rise Against Hunger, World Vision SG, and Special Olympics Singapore. These opportunities not only allows us to explore different types of service, they also allow us to touch the lives of people from all walks of life. For instance, in the annual Rise Against Hunger event, Interactors across Singapore collaborated to pack meals to be distributed to 65 countries worldwide.
Our CCA’s culture is built upon the contributions of every batch that preceded us. We hold our signature club events in Semester 1: Interact Camp, Youth Got Heart and Dine in the Dark. While the foundations of these annual events were laid by our seniors, every batch thus far has furthered these causes with their own unique takes and ideas! (Youth Got Heart promotes the spirit of service here in RI, while Dine in the Dark raises awareness of the challenges the visually handicapped face in their daily lives.)
Raffles Interact Main Events 2017
Each batch of Interactors is a family of 80 like-minded individuals who share the same heart to serve. Encouragement and support can be found in every step of your Interact journey, in the friendships you forge. Together, we strive towards the common goal of benefiting the wider community that surrounds us. Together, we construct something bigger than the sum of its parts, and we achieve more than we ever could as individuals.
Anyone can serve – it does not matter if you’ve had prior experience or not. If you have the space in your heart to serve, Raffles Interact has a space in our club for you!
