BE OUR VOLUNTEER
As an organisation which was established by volunteers, SADeaf values all our volunteers – your commitment and dedication are the reasons the association has grown and thrived for sixty years.
Our volunteers, from all walks of life, bring passion, energy and experience to complement our staff in providing quality services to the Deaf and hard-of-hearing community.
In what way can I volunteer?
We have a range of volunteer groups to cater to those who are keen to help. Registered volunteers are invited to join at least one of the following groups:
Our befrienders support our clients – either children or senior citizens with hearing loss – via regular visits.
Admin & Event Support
To assist the Secretariat, fundraising or project team in administrative work or in organising events.
You are skilled in a certain field – such as editing/writing, the performing arts, sports, language, photography – and wish to offer your expertise to us. We have opportunities for you to be our journalists, event photographers, designers, instructors and more!
Singapore Deaf Youth Section (SDYS)
Newly established in late 2014, SDYS aims to groom Deaf and Hard-of-hearing youth to be the future leaders of the community. For youths aged 18 to 35 it organises activities and outings, workshops and camps. If you love networking, socialising, are keen to enlarge social circles and are eager for fun and adventure, join us! Deaf, hard of hearing and hearing volunteers are welcome. But note only Deaf and hard-of-hearing youth can hold management positions in SDYS. Find out more on its Facebook!
Igniters is a general volunteer group for SADeaf volunteers – whether Deaf/hard of hearing or hearing – of all ages (including the young and young at heart!). It helps organise events and activities for SADeaf’s clients in the community at large, including children, adults and elderly folks, and also lend a helping hand during fundraising and special events. Find out more at the Igniters Facebook page!
A song-signing performance group with both hearing and deaf members, Signifique was officially established under SADeaf in May 2009. Through song-signing, Signifique hopes to showcase the beauty, versatility and artistry of sign language. It also aims to increase public awareness of the Deaf in the visual performing arts field. (The photo above shows the Signifique team.) Check it out on Facebook!
* Please note that Signifique’s practices are on every Thursday from 7pm to 10pm. If you’re interested to attend, please contact Mr James Ong.
