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 over 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:
Volunteer Groups enrich the lives of Deaf and Hard-of-hearing Persons and empower them through various activities.
SGD is an official SADeaf social group which aims to promote a healthy lifestyle among the Deaf Community. It hopes to encourage the active participation of our Deaf members through various activities such as cycling, adventure trips and etc. It is open to the Deaf and Hard-of-hearing aged 21 and above.
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.
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.
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.
