You could even make some new friends despite staying home this circuit breaker.
Suffering from cabin fever while you are cooped up at home during this circuit breaker? Or are you looking for ways to make new friends and socialise with others?
You may want to join Virtual Red Box by Youth Corps Singapore (YCS), an initiative to keep youths engaged until the circuit breaker ends on Jun 1 - with programmes all held over Zoom.
Each session lasts about one hour, with 20 to 100 participants. It will be facilitated by YCS staff, youth volunteers or community partners.
There are five different series that youths can look out for in the initiative.
The first is #mindoverbody, with a focus towards health and wellness activities such as art therapy or yoga.
Then there’s #skillsup, where participants can pick up new skills like sign language, and #getreadywithme, where participants can focus on their self-image or even beauty tips like make-up.
#Ilike_, is aimed at connecting like-minded youths with each other over topics they are interested in, while #youth4good is an opportunity for youths to do good - through participation in panel sessions with the different clusters under YCS.
YCS executive director Ong Kah Kuang said that the Virtual Red Box can be a “platform for youth to learn new skills, pick up new hobbies, do good together and connect with other youths."
Programmes you can expect in the next few weeks include:
- #youthforyouth Let’s Cook Together, 7 May, 5-6pm
- #mindoverbody - Art as self-care by FoundSpace, 8 May, 5 – 6pm & 13 May, 8 – 9pm
