Excellent Service Award
Yellow Ribbon Project
Till 2014, each year about 200 students from Jurongville have volunteered to be the “hands and legs’ at YRP events. One such support is the packing of 10,000 Race packs after school at their school premise. In addition the students assisted with logistical support, distribution of pamphlets and goodie bags at the Yellow Ribbon Prison Run.
To date, more than 1000 students have supported and participated in the Yellow Ribbon Project.
The Yellow Ribbon Project seeks to engage the community in giving ex-offenders a second chance at life and to inspire a ripple effect of concerted community action to support ex-offenders and their families.
If you’ve participated in the Yellow Ribbon Prison Run, then you’re bound to have noticed the eager students who tirelessly cheer runners on throughout the race.
Mr Mohan, a teacher at JurongVille Secondary School, is the teacher behind that initiative, and has been working with the Yellow Ribbon Project since 2008.
Other than cheering runners on, his students have also been helping the Yellow Ribbon Project assemble race packs for the past four years.
When asked why he chose to support our cause, Mr Mohan explained that while support for second chances has been increasing, much more can be done for ex-offenders who need our help.
He adds that ex-offenders have already srved their time and everyone should move towards reintegrating them back into society.
