Every child deserves equal and equitable access to all opportunities and resources. A holistic development through imparting character education and life skills is key in building the resiliency of our next generation to cope with modern day and future demands. Filos Children & Youth programmes aim to build the resilience of the younger generation, imparting character education and lifeskills, that will nurture them to fulfil their potential.
Filos provides a weekly tuition programme in a safe, caring and fun learning environment for upper Primary School students to Lower Secondary School students. The students are tutored once a week with the help of our dedicated Volunteer Tutors on the main core subjects (English, Mathematics and Science) from Primary 3 to Secondary 1 level.
Enrichment programmes are run during the school holidays to keep children and youth healthily engaged in activities that promote social interaction, community involvement, resilience and character building.
Filos started providing a Befriending & Mentoring Programme in June 2018 for children (7-12 years old) and youth (12-18 years old). The students are engaged in meaningful activities during the weekends and school holidays. The Youth are mentored through activity-based programmes on character development and leadership that will pave the way in building their resilience.

Total Recall is a programme that aims to help students become more aware of common issues faced by the elderly, in particular dementia. As Singapore’s population ages, it is important, not just to build more facilities and services for our ageing population, but also to educate our children and youth, who will be the next generation of caregivers, so that they will develop a greater sense of empathy and respect towards the elderly.
