THE IMPETUS FOR PROJECT 10X
"A meaningful career is for good students 'cher, not for me."
We at The Astronauts Collective (TAC) believe that every youth should have a right to a meaningful career, especially in a society like Singapore where our work is a huge part of our lives and identity. Yet not every youth has the same motivation, resources and opportunities towards a meaningful career.
This is why TAC is launching Project 10X and making a commitment to support youths from more challenging backgrounds, in particular those who are from lower-income households, less academically-inclined and/or those with mild special needs (ADHD, on the autism spectrum, etc).
Project 10X is TAC's multi-year movement to supercharge (hence, 10X) the career exploration journey for the youths with less, a movement that rallies the local community and brings together our collective resources to help these youths explore and discover meaningful careers!
10X GOALS FOR 2022
Supercharge career support for 1,000 youths from more challenging backgrounds
Rally & grow a community of volunteers to guide and mentor these youths
Raise funds to sustain this movement in the long run
HOW YOU CAN CONTRIBUTE
If you're an organisation that has youths from more challenging backgrounds under your care, we'll be happy to partner you and support the youths you work with!
We will need all hands on deck to help guide and mentor these youths! If you are a career professional with a heart to support youths with less, we welcome you to volunteer with us!
For every dollar you donate, the Singapore Tote Board will match and donate another dollar to TAC! Every little bit helps, please donate generously!
