Hi! Thanks for the interesting feed! But I am wondering whether the volunteering application to this year’s F1 has been closed since you mentioned that’ the deadline is passed’? The official website states that information is coming soon, so do I still have a chance? Thanks!!


Yeah, the deadline has passed already and I guess the “coming soon” refers to the information for the “to be” volunteers, like training schedule etc…


Hey! Thanks for the various links on volunteering! I’ve been thinking about it and your post has been really helpful! :D


Thanks a bunch for this. I’m opting for library volunteer. I walk in and out of the library almost every week but this has never crossed my mind. Twill be great to be a storyteller (great change–and divertion!).

I am here in Singapore as Long-term Visit Pass that will expire next year. I’ve applying for work here so many called me but because I am in LTVP holder it is difficult for me to work in a low paying work so I decided to try work as volunteer just to help also and not waste my time staying here doing nothing.

Hope anyone could reply me and be part of volunteer team here in Singapore. I really just want to try working here in Singapore as volunteer.

Thank you.
