Youth Consultants Programs
We enable via this program to contribute towards solving specific issues faced by our partner NGOs as a part of our Youth Incubator Programs. We identify NGO’s who are facing a strategic challenge and link students to those NGOs. We create a team of students(Action Impact service team) led by an expert from our team as the program manager. Typical steps in the Action Impact Engagement program would be as follows:Needs Assessment: Action Impact and youth team to engage with NGO to understand the challenge on hand Problem definition Use design thinking to help groups of students define problems that NGOs in Singapore are facing. Impact Measurement: Help students measure impact of their intervention Immortalizing the Initiative: Help interested youth register start up and create website that records the journey of creating to designing to solving. Alternatives to websites include writing a book on this journey.
Memories in Motion®
We encourage our youth to give back to the community by taking part in our popular Memories in Motion® program.We all know that through the process of reminiscence and recall, seniors can be socially and emotionally engaged through meaningful conversations, where they are encouraged to share their stories and memories.But did you know that it can positively impact their aging process? Believe it or not, an exercise as simple as reminiscing can have many positive effects on an aging adult. According to the American Psychological Association, therapy using reminiscence is “the use of life histories – written, oral or both – to improve psychological well-being.”Laura Carstensen, a Stanford psychology professor who led the report and is the director of the Stanford Center for Longevity, said, “Contrary to widespread beliefs that older populations consume resources that would otherwise go to youth, there is growing reason to think that older people may be just the resource children need.” These mutual benefits are perhaps the most compelling reason for programs that connect young and old.With this mutually beneficial and synergistic relationship in mind, we at Action Impact have curated a program to bring together the young and the old – our future and our past – to interact in a meaningful way, and to provide a platform for the seniors to share their stories with the young. While this brings joy to the seniors, it gives the youth a different perspective of life and gives them a deeper understanding and appreciation of a different world and era that shaped today’s Singapore.
