Testimonials on Community Outreach Programme

"From this OBS programme, I can see that the whole team is transformed into a more closely-knitted operating force that is able to overcome future challenges in our work at the community. I would like to recommend that all GRLs to attend the Teambuilding Programme at OBS."

“Through community outreach programmes, OBS is able to expose public members to Outdoor Adventure; not just us, the enthusiasts. The participants seemed to be enjoying themselves. As a volunteer belayer, I was able to learn from the OBS Instructors’ professionalism and this experience was a very good exposure for me. I would strongly encourage students to try and volunteer in similar activities organised by OBS.”

“I tried so many new things today! It had been an exciting day and I got to work with many of my fellow grassroots leaders from other Residents' Committee. Through the activities, I got to know them better.” (Huy Tiang climbed a 3m tower at OBS, Pulau Ubin during the Teambuilding Programme for Grassroots Organisation)

“You will never get this kind of experience in other places. OBS is the best place not just to undergo physical challenges. But through overcoming these challenges with a team, we bring back learned values that will help us to gain mileage in our volunteer work. And this actually helps us become better people.”

“We got to experience something that we cannot find elsewhere. I picked up values like trust and communication with others through the activities. I learned that if I have to guide a group in the future, I don’t have to do things alone. I can get help from others in the team too.”

"It was exciting to see all the youth from different diverse backgrounds attending and sharing a meal together. The instructors were patient and understanding towards the youth and they were ever present to answer their questions. Whether the youths go back to school with a 100% attendance, we will have to wait and see but what they have forged now is a lifetime step towards independent living. Thank you OBS for giving us this opportunity."
