The 5th Volunteer Induction Programme (VIP) commenced on 20th May with a good turnout of 20 new volunteers. We will like to thank all our new volunteers for taking the first step towards volunteerism in the BBE Community! VIP is a theory and practical workshop where volunteers are trained by BBE’s experienced Grassroots Leaders. During Induction, they learn about BBE Constituency’s committees, history, structure, and most importantly, PA’s mission in building and bridging communities in achieving One People, One Singapore. As National Day approaches, the VIPs look forward to contributing their talents and skills to our Nation’s Birthday, and to help bond, build and engage the BBE Community!
VIP’s next session is on 26th May 2012 (Sat) @3-6pm. We encourage all who are interested to be part of this volunteerism effort to join us! See you there!
