In the 21st century, the issues affecting our youths are vastly global and widely varied. Skillseed sends them out of their comfort zone to experience first-hand the diversity and challenges the world has to offer –

developing resilience, adaptability, and wisdom in the face of uncertainty.

Designed to complement the academic curriculum of schools, our courses easily integrate into Service Learning, Values in Action, Global Immersion, Career Readiness or IB programmes.

Besides choosing from our ready-to-go course options, schools can also opt to customise courses to suit the unique preferences of their students!

A SKILLSEED COURSE:

FUSS-FREE

Our strength in logistics means we take care of all the details (flights, travel insurance, accommodations etc.), saving you time so that you can focus on the things that really matter. As facilitators and educators, we also take great care of the learning of participants – crafting materials and engaging with students throughout the course. 

Beyond the rigorous learning, trust that your students are in safe hands with our first-aid trained and MOE registered facilitators on board 24/7 during the trip.

RIGOROUS

Our unique courses take students beyond academic achievements or meaningless manual labour. With Skillseed, credible experts help students learn real skills that matter, building their resilience to stand out in a fast changing world that requires more than just their results or CCAs. Students gain 21st century skills that they keep with them for life and that helps them in the future, way beyond this trip.

Knowing all that, registering students for a Skillseed course is an easy decision for educators.

ETHICAL

Be glad to know that by choosing to work with us over for-profit organizations, you are contributing directly to the sustainable livelihoods of partners and helping them with real needs that contribute to their communities. Work with us to rise above “voluntourism”, do good the right way, and spread the word on ethical and skilled volunteering.
