Volunteer for CareNights@Morning Star

CareNights is the first programme in Singapore that provides free night care for children aged 7-14, giving parents a chance for respite. It is aimed at supporting:

  • parents engaged in shift work/skills upgrading or need to get a second job at night to make ends meet;
  • single parents in great need of caregiving respite or who are attending night school;
  • families in transition, such as those undergoing divorce, attending to critically ill family members or similar crises

Operating on weekday nights from 6 pm to 10 pm, CareNights provides nutritious dinners and engages children in structured activities to support their learning of values and skills to be independent, discerning and socially and emotionally well-adjusted.

Activities for children:
Speech & drama
Academic Coaching
Movie appreciation
Reading
Music appreciation
Sports & Games
Dance
Art as therapy

Activities for parents:
Parent-child bonding activities facilitated by Morning Star trainers once every 2 months
