Have you always thought of making a change in society ‚ÄĒ be it through volunteering, social enterprise, or entrepreneurship?

The Campfire initiative, a partnership between the National Youth Council, *SCAPE and Tribal Worldwide Singapore, aims to help you kickstart your journey in those areas.

The programme aims to create opportunities for youths to develop real-world experience in areas such as entrepreneurship, design innovation, social enterprise, volunteerism, and creative storytelling.

Starting on 1 Apr, the programme will kick off with two weeks of accelerated learning, consisting of live lectures at *SCAPE and remote learning sessions online.

After that, participants will challenge their creative solutioning skills as they work out community-based problems for clients in real-time. A total of six mentorship sessions, two held every week, will be provided to guide participants along the way.
