Community & Volunteers

CD Lionhearter Club

The CD Lionhearter Club, provides an avenue for tertiary students to be engaged in civil defence, emergency preparedness and humanitarian missions.

 

A 5-modular programme, known as the Community Emergency Preparedness Programme (CEPP), is offered to the CD Lionhearters to equip them with the necessary skills to provide first level response to incidents within the campus grounds. They will also be given the opportunity to be involved in Emergency Preparedness Days and other community involvement programmes held at the heartlands.

 

On the international front, students can be deployed overseas as part of Non-Governmental Organisations, such as the Mercy Relief, to undertake humanitarian projects and assist the host countries in construction development projects such as repair works for damaged schools and drainage systems. To prepare them for their overseas deployment, they will be taught the different cultural sensitivities and traditions of different countries. They will also be trained in the Community Engagement Programme to help them in their role as mediators should incidents involving communal tensions arise on campus grounds.

The scheme was pioneered in Singapore Polytechnic and launched on 27 Oct 2009. Invitation to set up the CD Lionhearter Club is extended to all post-secondary and tertiary institutions, which includes ITEs, Polytechnics and Universities.

Below is the list of overseas missions that the CD Lionhearters have undertaken so far.
