Begin a journey of exploration with us

Hello, we are The Astronauts Collective (TAC), a not-for-profit organisation that aims to help youths explore and better understand their career interests and passion. TAC programmes are free-of-charge, to ensure that youths from all backgrounds get the opportunity to explore. With the support of nearly 150 volunteers, more than 1000 youths have benefited from TAC programmes since Jan 2015.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

"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 love to do what I do - the kids have mentored their mentor!"

Tang Ji Ching, Mentor, Marketing

 

Key Programmes

Day X, or a day of exploration, is envisioned to be a fun and accessible opportunity for youths to explore the world of work. The idea of a “day” is to encourage youths (and other related stakeholders) to “take a day” off from everyday preoccupations, to explore and better understand what they may find interesting, or even meaningful, to undertake as a possible career. 

 

Day X is focused on exposure and awareness.

WORLDS

 

TAC's "Worlds" help youths experience and discover how one's work, beyond for personal satisfaction, could contribute to and impact the world. Through "Worlds", participants get to try out taster activities in different professions and gain insights into how different areas of work can contribute towards the betterment of the world in certain ways, like how a journalist helps create an equal world, or how an urban farmer contributes to a sustainable world.

HUMAN LIBRARY

 

Through a cosy and unintimidating setting, participants can choose to read from a wide collection of more than 50 human books at any one sitting. Each human book is a volunteer professional from a particular field, whom the participants could interact with to find out more about that particular profession.

Over 6 consecutive Saturday mornings, participants undergo a structured activity-based programme, conducted by volunteer professionals from diverse fields. Through a mix of in-school activities and field trips, volunteers help participants explore the knowledge, skills and motivations of those in their fields.

 

Mission X is focused on immersion and reflection.
