PRISON VOLUNTEERS (NON-RELIGIOUS)

PVR-Our Commitment to You


All Volunteers in the Home Team stand with us in preserving Singapore’s security.  You are a key partner of the Home Team in its efforts to engage the community to embrace security awareness and to play a part in ensuring their own security and that of your loved ones. You enhance the work of the Home Team through your passion, expertise and time.

As a Home Team Volunteer, you will be trained and supervised, working in partnership with Regular Officers in the execution of their duties.  Our philosophy of involvement includes giving you the necessary orientation, ample opportunities for personal development, as well as awards and recognition for good service.

 

Prison Volunteer Training

New volunteers will undergo Prison Basic Volunteer Training to familiarise themselves with the prisons environment and the dos' and don'ts during their volunteering. They will also be equipped with the skills and knowledge to conduct effective and purposeful session with the inmates. Volunteers can also look forward to attending accredited developmental courses. These training opportunities will enhance their skills and competencies in their roles as Prison volunteers.

 

Dialogues

Volunteers are also invited to attend regular dialogue sessions with officers from the institutions which they are based at. The dialogue sessions allow the institution's staff and volunteers to discuss issues related to their volunteering stint.

 

Appreciation

In appreciation of our volunteers' contribution to the rehabilitation efforts, an annual appreciation luncheon is organised at the end of each year. 

 

Recognition

There are three categories of awards to recognize the contribution of deserving volunteers. The categories are:

• Long Service award

• Outstanding Initiative award

• Outstanding Contribution award
