d’Klub is a free mentoring programme for children from disadvantaged families who live in the communities of the d’Klub centres.

d’Klub aims to inspire and motivate children to Discover, Develop and Display their potential, and enhance their resilience so they may rise above their challenges. This is achieved by building their sense of purpose, self-esteem and self-confidence, and equipping them with life skills. This enables them to cope well socially, emotionally and mentally.

Programme Features

The two-hour Saturday programme includes an hour of small group tuition, followed by another hour of either games or character building activities. d’Klub children benefit from social interaction with peers and positive volunteer role models.

 

The programme also includes:

  • Fun-learning activities
  • Group sports activities
  • Annual Games Day event
  • Bi-annual Parents’ Day events
  • Referrals to social assistance schemes

Eligibility Criteria

  1. Primary 3 to 6 students
  2. Qualifies for MOE’s Financial Assistance Scheme
  3. To continue in the programme, students are required to fulfil an 80% attendance rate each year.

Testimonies

“I was inspired to try harder by one of the volunteers who always encouraged me. His words gave me the confidence to do better for my exams.”

Sid*

When Irfan first joined d’Klub in 2017, he was prone to using vulgarities and showed bullying behaviour to the other d’Klub children. There were also many occasions where he instilled fear in the others and refused to obey the instructions of staff and volunteers.

 

During the two years he spent in d’Klub, staff and volunteers observed positive changes in his behaviour. Irfan learnt to be careful with his words and was able to control his outbursts. He even learnt to be a friend and got along better with his peers.

 

His change was inspired by one volunteer whose affirmation and relentless belief in him helped develop his self-confidence and sense of self-worth. This volunteer also encouraged him to be diligent and study hard for his PSLE, which he eventually did well enough to be awarded the ‘Best Improvement Award’ by his school.

 

When Irfan graduated from d’Klub in 2018, d’Klub honoured him with the ‘Best Role Model’ award to recognise his positive transformation. He also received the ‘Best Attendance’ award for attending every d’Klub session that year.

“d’Klub has helped our students in their homework but more importantly in building their social-emotional skills to regulate their emotions. This has led to improved relationships with their peers.”
