Two-day Community-driven Learning Adventure
We nurture future leaders with an appreciation of the heterogeneous nature of society. The Social Issues and Science tracks encompasses a two-day learning adventure, where students will be immersed in spaces of co-creation with often overlooked communities. Future leaders have to be aware that society is not homogeneous; it comprises different groups of people and often overlooked are the elderly, migrant workers and special needs youth. Through this immersive community-driven curriculum, we aim to nurture social awareness, raise consciousness and appreciation of community and social issues.
