our programs & services
Here's a snapshot of how Impart and our partners come together and support youths-facing-adversity, building a community of care:
Impart Education ensures that every youth-facing-adversity receives robust and accessible opportunities for a well rounded education – their adverse circumstances should not cause their educational journey to come to a standstill. These opportunities span academics, (career) aspirations, and (financial) acumen.
Impart’s Mental Health Care arm champions advocacy that issues forth in action. Advocacy looks like psycho-education and destigmatisation. Action looks like the provision of accessible mental health care services in community spaces. Brought together, youths facing psychological or life crises to receive accessible support, with platforms creates to amplify their experiences.
Impart Community creates opportunities in local communities for youths-facing-adversity to explore their aspirations through play, grow their sense of belonging through service, and obtain developmental momentum through innovative programs. From small group activities to large group programs, youths to build a sense of belonging with larger communities of care.
Impart believes that every volunteer who wants to be a Youth Advocate should be treated as a partner to be empowered, rather than a resource to be managed.
This means that Youth Advocates, who often play mentoring roles, need to be invested with learning and development opportunities. This includes foundational knowledge courses, skills development workshops, on-the-job training, and robust processes to facilitate volunteer support.
We care for our carers!
Paving Pathways offers former youths-facing-adversity workplace opportunities to contribute to the social impact sector as working professionals.
Youths under this program are largely at a post-tertiary level. They do not possess the relevant academic qualification (i.e. NITEC/Diploma in Community Care), but desire to use their lived experiences and skillsets to be a part of their community’s change.
Impart mentors them through paid workplace opportunities, in order to equip them with requisite skills and knowledge for being part of the sector in the long run.
