About the Young Caregivers Programme (yCG)

With interactive workshops and Values-In-Action sessions, students are inspired and encouraged to evaluate their own family situations, harness their innate abilities and hidden talents and channel them into positive actions.

How does the yCG programme work?

The yCG programme is designed for Primary, Secondary and Tertiary level students. The 1-1.5 hr sessions are tailored to enhance the schools’ Character and Citizenship Education (CCE) programme and can also be incorporated into school orientations and CCA timeslots.

Four distinct workshops tailored to the maturity levels and learning needs of different age groups constitute the yCG programme:
