aRWSome Apprenticeship aims to reach out and inspire at-risk youths through mentorship programmes with RWS senior team members in a partnership with local volunteer welfare organisation Heartware Network.
This programme was conceived to keep youths off the streets and learn a life skill from experts in Culinary, Performing Arts and Entertainment, Attractions, Hospitality and Retail.
The fourth edition of our aRWSome Apprenticeship series was held in June where 30 youths experienced what it was like to be working in the hospitality industry. Working together with experienced team members, these youths took on roles as housekeeping attendants, front desk receptionists and butlers in RWS hotels.
Upon completion of their two-week stint, the youths shared their experience with teachers and parents as well as received certificates of participation from former Minister for Social and Family Development, Mr Chan Chun Sing.
