RSVP is a membership organisation. Like most membership organisations, it comes with a fee to join. Paying a membership fee is a sign of commitment. RSVP’s community service programmes are typically long-term in nature for the service to have an impact. Hence volunteers need to undertake their duties with a sense of obligation and on a sustained basis. The membership fee will also help to cover part of the cost for training, bonding and insurance coverage when you are volunteering.
Fill up our online application form. We will contact you within 14 days. Subsequently we will invite you to attend our open house and training. This process may take two weeks to a month. If you need more information, please feel free to call us at 6259 0802 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Most of our community service programmes requires acommitment of at least half a day each week for the programme to have its desired impact. We ask for a minimum commitment of 6 months.
If you are unable to commit to a a regular volunteering schedule, or would like to try out volunteering without committing to a particular service, you may join our Episodic Volunteering programme. All ages are welcome.
In the past, we require volunteers to commit and sign on as a member before they can volunteer in our programmes.
With effect from 1 July 2016, we have allowed volunteers to sign on as episodic volunteers to get a taste of volunteering before they commit long term. However episodic volunteers will be required to attend relevant briefings before deployment.
Yes you will be invited to attend a mandatory half-day “Be an Effective Volunteer” workshop conducted by our RSVP facilitators. You will also be contacted to attend programme briefings and trainings to prepare you for your assignments. All training will be provided free of charge.
To cultivate a stronger sense of belonging, RSVP Singapore is issuing membership cards to all RSVP members. Membership details such as type and validity of membership are stated on the card. Please note that a replacement fee of $5 will be charged for loss of membership card.
All members can bring their membership card to all branches of Sian Chay Medical Institution (SCMI) to receive free TCM services till 31 January 2018. For the various SCMI branch locations and operating hours, please click here.
If you have pre-arranged appointment and cannot be present for your duties, you have to inform your teammates/team leader and Programme executive in advance, ideally a week beforehand. For last-minute emergency i.e. sick, please inform your teammates/team leader and Programme Executive as soon as possible.
Certain talks and IT classes are open to members of the public, however only RSVP members are entitled to attend the training classes as these are meant to equip our members with skills for voluntary work.
