Under the Badge Scheme, secondary school students in the Uniform Groups attend a motivational workshop that focuses 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.
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 invitations to schools to participate in our annual Rise Above Campaign.
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.
We conduct talks and road shows on preventive drug education at schools, ITEs, Polytechnics, Family Service Centres and community clubs.
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.
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.
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.
