Connect To Change: Inspiring At-Risk Youth In Singapore
Connect To Change is a social initiative from Generation T. We bring the Gen.T community together to create positive impact in each of our markets across Asia, partnering with local charities and activating the skills of our honourees to benefit the charity and help its founders achieve their goals.
This year’s inaugural Connect To Change event took place in Singapore, in partnership with The Fullerton Hotel Singapore and Reach Community Services and with the support of the National Volunteer and Philanthropy Centre.
Twenty children from youth outreach programme Reach Community Services attended a series of sharing sessions hosted by five Gen.T honourees—Rachel Lim, co-founder of fashion label Love, Bonito; Ho Jia Jian, co-founder of online media company Viddsee; Jackson Aw, founder of toy design studio Mighty Jaxx; Oon Tian Sern, founder of mental health platform Acceset; and rapper Shigga Shay.
The sessions took place in guest suites inside The Fullerton Hotel Singapore. During the sessions, honourees shared personal stories about their journey and career, with tales of dreams, failure and perseverance being the hot topics of the day.
