Some say youths are the leaders of tomorrow. At Habitat for Humanity Singapore, we believe that youths are the leaders of today.

 

Engaging youth volunteers deeply in the work of Habitat is key to the programmes we run. Every young person volunteering, fundraising, raising awareness and adding their voices in support of affordable housing, can help families achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves. At Habitat for Humanity Singapore, our work with the youth seeks to increase the depth of our reach to schooling youths, building the capacity of youth volunteers to do much more, and to give them the platform to explore projects that build sustainable communities.

 

This work involves:

  • Outreach to educational institutions and youth groups which includes 

    • Following up on existing relationships with youth partners such as schools, youth groups, and ad-hoc youth volunteers.

    • Planning and executing a variety of roadshows, exhibits, and awareness talks to share about the work of Habitat Singapore.

    • Identifying partnership opportunities to engage interested institutions and youth groups.

  • Manage relationships with potential and existing short-term youth volunteer groups

    • Being good stewards of existing/positive leads.

    • Keeping track of leads and relationships through our data system.

 

 

For the internship position, it will be ideal if you are someone who:

  • Enjoys seeing the potential in youths to do good.

  • Possesses experience in tele/email-marketing, sales, and facing rejection in many forms. 

  • Possesses effective interpersonal and communication skills.

  • Has a self-driven and mature personality for professional interaction with external stakeholders (e.g. teachers, curriculum planners, external partners).

  • Able to communicate and work effectively across departments

 

You will definitely need to be:

  • Proficient in Microsoft office applications, emails, and using a telephone.

  • Proficient in written and spoken English.

 

It’s a plus if you:

  • Have interest in publicity and communications via social media.

  • Have experience using a CRM platform.

  • Have volunteered in one of our events.

 

The Internship Experience:

 

Over the past 14 years, we’ve constantly pushed the envelope, expanding and adapting to meet the pressing needs of our community. We do this to realise our vision for a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

 

Interns will be able to gain first-hand insights into how we manage for organisation excellence locally and internationally. You will also have an in-depth understanding and experience in learning how Habitat for Humanity Singapore operates and sustains its programmes- from operations to financials.
