Life Skill

This will include hygiene, self-grooming and preparation of simple meals for themselves. Trainees can learn how to make simple meals such as a sandwich and hot drinks.

Literacy Skill

To improve the trainees' reading and writing skills, hence they are able to better integrate into society.

Supported Work at company clients' work premises

Most of the trainees, although equipped with the appropriate work skills, can only function effectively with close supervision and guidance. More often, the clients need supervision to ensure proper social behavior and disciplined work attitudes. We believe that supported work program at the employers' premise is an achievable reality. We will source and work with prospective employers for suitable work.

Supported Work within the Center

For those trainees who are unable to work in company clients' premises, they can be trained to take on work such as mailing and packing at the center under the supervision of a job coach.
