2024 ACE@SST: Service-Learning, Volunteering and Service Hours Matters

Dear students,

Secondary 4:

Other than the cohort-wide service-learning programs, student agency is encouraged and further service opportunities are available through,

  2. Initiating your own service projects

  3. Volunteering with external organisations. 

Volunteering through Student-initiated projects. 

The ACE student leaders will organise student initiated service projects and will seek volunteers through our common ways of communication. Students are encouraged to sign up for them. Examples of projects are collaborations with Kids Learn Code, Singapore Cancer Society and MCYS and many others. 

Self-initiated service projects

Students are also encouraged to initiate their own service projects in the areas they are passionate about. If you are keen, please write in to the relevant teachers-in-charge or seek out a fellow ACE student leader who will guide you from there.

More info on this will be posted on the SST student blog later.

Volunteering with external organisations. 

SST recognises service rendered to external organisations provided certain conditions are met. Please note the following information on volunteering and submission of service hours documents. 

(i) Before volunteering: Get permission from your parents/ guardians before signing up with the external organisation.

(ii) After volunteering: Obtain an official document from the external organisation with your full name and the hours volunteered. This document must be signed by the personnel in charge or stamped with the official logo of the organisation.

(iii) Within 2 weeks after the completion of service: Submit a scanned copy or clear photo image of the official document using “ACE@SST: Service Hours SubmissionGoogle Form.

* If you intend to volunteer regularly/ multiple times at the same external organisation, submit the official document only after the last service for the year latest by 1 November 2024.  

* For service at an external organisation with a group of friends on the same dates, only 1 representative should submit the Google Form on behalf of the group, attaching the relevant documents for every group member in the form.   

#SST-ACTIVATE Resources Site. 

To provide ideas on possible service-learning and volunteering opportunities, the ACE committee of teachers have also created this site where you can read, consider and of course, look at some already completed service-learning projects by your seniors.
