Friends of Silver Infocomm
Friends of Silver Infocomm ("FSI") is a programme under the Infocomm Media Development Authority’s (“IMDA”) Silver Infocomm Initiative (“SII”) to promote active volunteerism to those who have a passion to help seniors hop onto the digital bandwagon. Volunteers play important roles in ensuring seniors keep up with the trainers during IT workshops and tutorials.
Every year, about 300 to 400 adult and student volunteers come forward to support the SII outreach efforts. A range of volunteer opportunities will be made available on a regular basis for each FSI to choose from. While there is no minimum commitment volunteer hours, each volunteer session is about 3 to 4 hours and each FSI is encouraged to sign up for 2 to 4 sessions a year.
IMDA also welcomes Corporate FSI. Interested companies and organisations from the private or public sectors may also contact them.
