Singapore International Volunteers Handbook, 1st Edition 2012

This handbook will guide volunteers on SIF volunteer policies, practices and support systems.

The SIF aims to provide every volunteer with a rewarding first experience and opportunities thereafter for continuous contributions. Through the SIV community, the foundation also actively promotes the cause of international volunteerism in Singapore as a means to build a better world – one that is mutually inclusive, peaceful and offers opportunities for all. We have prepared this handbook to guide you through our volunteer policies, practices and support systems to enable you to contribute to and gain from your volunteer stint. Please take the time to review it thoroughly.
