Public Engagement

Our preventive drug education targets the young with our anti-drug messages taking an ‘engagement’ approach. We equip and encourage students and youth groups to conceptualise and implement drug awareness campaigns that reach out to their peers.

YOUTH Services Offered

SANA BADGE SCHEME

Under the Badge Scheme, secondary school students in the Uniform Groups attend a motivational workshop that focusses on information on drug-abuse and character building. The programme includes role-play and an online assessment where the students each receive a SANA Badge (Bronze) upon completion.

ROADSHOWS & TALKS

We engage with youths through various platforms to promote awareness on the importance of prevention strategies in fighting drug abuse. These include talks delivered in schools by our Peer Leaders (who are clients and recovery champions) and invitation to schools to participate in our annual Rise Above Campaign.

S.T.E.A.D.Y. PROGRAMME

STEADY, which stands for STrengthening and Enhancing the Ability of Decision-making in Youths, develops decision-making (DM) skills. It helps the youths to identify risk factors and decrease their likelihood of engaging in anti-social behaviours, such as experimenting with drugs.

The programme aims to increase understanding on how decisions are made (that is, the factors that influence one’s DM, such as impulsivity), identify their own influential factors and enhance their awareness of their current risky behaviours (for example, truancy) in relation to achieving their goals.

COMMUNITY Services Offered

PREVENTATIVE DRUG OUTREACH

We conduct talks and road shows on preventive drug education at schools, ITEs, Polytechnics, Family Service Centres and community clubs.

SPEAKER ENGAGEMENTS

Trained Peer Leaders share their testimony and experiences of their recovery journey at outreach talks, engagement sessions in schools and at halfway houses and corporate events.

YELLOW RIBBON COMMUNITY PROJECT

The Yellow Ribbon Community Project (YRCP) is a grassroots-led initiative where trained volunteers visit families of offenders to offer them social support and assistance to help minimise their burden.

Rise Above Campaign

ANNUAL OUTREACH & ENGAGEMENT CAMPAIGN

The Annual ‘Rise Above – Overcoming the Influence’ campaign’s success lies in our collaboration with schools and youth groups whose anti-drug projects with positive messages help counter the misperception of drugs as a safe recreation pursuit. Their messages speak directly to their peers, thus building greater support among youths for a drug-free Singapore.

The Campaign was launched in 2018.
