STEP ITE Sunburst Outreach Network
STEP sponsors the 3 ITE Colleges to organize community outreach activities to:
- put into practice the skills which they learn in the Colleges
- have opportunities to interact with the elderly and disadvantaged and learn the values of caring and compassion
More than 1,800 students have reached out to some 3,400 beneficiaries in Singapore in 2015. These beneficiaries have benefitted through basic retro-fitting of their rental flats to make it more elderly safe, attend activities of the 3 Colleges, provided festive goodies, attended reading classes conducted by the students, learnt the use of exercise machines to enhance their health and generally made to feel more wanted and part of mainstream society.
