Begin a journey of exploration with us

“I want to be successful when I grow up” is a common sentiment among many. We often end up trudging along conventional pathways because those are the only definitions of success we’re familiar with. But success means different things to different people, and the answers to a good life aren’t written out as clearly as those in the Ten-Year Series.

We help students explore and investigate different futures, different paths - to discover and define their purpose, passions and interests.

What we do

We are a team of volunteers (with day jobs!) working together to provide a diverse selection of apprenticeships to students in school.

We work with schools in Singapore to create opportunities that allow students to learn the basics of particular professions from volunteer mentors who are currently working in the field.

Through these apprenticeships, they can discover the many options available to them, and start developing their own curiosity about other occupations.

Finally, we hope to inspire them to reflect on their own definitions of success and discover interests, passions and their life’s purpose.

"People who love their jobs often have a clear idea of the Whys and Hows, and when one is forced to explain one's very adult job to wide-eyed 14 year olds, one becomes lucid very quickly! More than just another volunteering experience, TAC reminded me of why I loved to do what I do - the kids have mentored their mentor!"

- Tang Ji Ching, Mentor, Marketing

"The apprenticeship experience not only sparked career exposure and exploration in students, it also emphasizes values, passion and hard work. The 6 sessions may be short but it certainly leaves a positive, lasting impact on the students."

- Mr Liu Zhen, Teacher, Loyang Secondary School

"TAC is skills-based volunteering done right. Nothing's more fulfilling than mentoring curious youths who are eager to learn about your work, and encouraging them to start their own journeys of exploration. I'm also going through the same journey with TAC - getting better at examining and articulating what I do every run with added perspective, and thus discovering more meaning to the day job, bit by bit."

- Ng Kaijie, Mentor, Policy Making
