TOUCH Young Arrows is a service under TOUCH Community Services.


Overview
  • Every child matters
  • Volunteer-run Saturday programmes
  • Community kids from low-income and single-parent families




We believe that young ones have potential, and can be nurtured and sharpened like arrows to make a positive impact in society and to be future leaders in the community.

At TOUCH Young Arrows, we are committed to care for needy and disadvantaged children aged six to 12. We aim to help these children realise their potential through educational, social, emotional and moral support. The children are from low-income or single-parent families. Many of these children have little or no parental care and are at risk of falling into bad company.

On Saturdays, the volunteers run a variety of activities for children at 24 clubs including Ang Mo Kio, Bedok, Bukit Merah, Clementi, Geylang Bahru, Hougang, Marine Parade, Mountbatten, Queenstown, Serangoon, Tampines, Woodlands and Yishun (for full listing of clubs' details, please click here). The line-up of activities include tuition, mentoring, art and craft lessons, indoor and outdoor games, outings, camps, and adventure sports programmes. Some of the children who were in the pioneer programme some 25 years ago have returned to the club as volunteers to mentor the younger ones.

"I enjoy going for tuition and other activities at TOUCH Young Arrows because the jie-jies and kor-kors always teach me to love others and help me to become more confident. Now I no longer have stage fright." 


- 12 year-old Liu Xun

"My daughter's studies have improved a lot since she joined TOUCH Young Arrows. I can tell that she is also becoming more caring and loving towards those around her."
