Our Reason for Being
While we are aware of the increasing pressure of students to perform well academically in Singapore, we believe it is not everything. We believe great learning experiences can take place when we view students as more than just a number and provide personalised attention in a community environment.
Our dream is to be Asia's best alternative education provider, after-school program + experiential learning program for youth, with a focus on high-need communities. While we are aware of the increasing pressure of students to perform well academically in Singapore, we believe it is not everything. Our definition of success is to see each student's emotional intelligence, resilience, confidence and compassion for others be developed throughout our program offerings and to ensure that compassion + empathy are the DNA of every class we run.
Every class or workshop we lead, we do so with thoughtful planning and with the support of highly qualified, experienced and passionate educators.
There is no such thing as a 'quiet classroom' at our headquarters as we believe learning takes place through communication amongst peers, collaboration and learn-by-doing (and failing)! We run programs such as mindfulness, sport + wellness, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Architecture + Math) and provide once in a lifetime opportunities for our students to personally visit inspiring, innovative, big-name corporates and brands like Twitter.
At Beyond Awesome, students explore the world around them and discover friendships and their potential in life. Our program goals are to nurture and develop each student in our care, so that they leave with the skills, knowledge and attitude necessary to be a world-ready individual in today's fast changing era. We combine uniquely big opportunities through offerings such as our 'JalanJalan' experiences with personalised care and individual attention.
Students from high-need communities attend our sessions at no cost, many of whom these opportunities would not be accessible given their families financial background.
