OUR VISION

Bringing Out the Best in our People: 

Social Innovators, Passionate Learners.

OUR PURPOSE

The Centre for Social Innovation is set up to be a nexus for social innovation, to inspire, create and share practice that will instill a mindset and disposition towards innovative practices for social causes.

OUR VALUES

  • Empathy
  • Compassion
  • Social and Moral Responsibility
  • Open-Mindedness
  • Respecting Others

By engaging our students with authentic social issues, we hope to nurture them to be leaders of character, who are able to consider the feelings and perspectives of others. We also hope that they will be advocates for social change, being able to inspire others by creating solutions to the social issues they have identified.


OUR AREAS OF WORK

Incubating Spaces
This is an environment created to enable the students to connect, collaborate and co-create solutions with one another. It will allow students to apply their knowledge and work alongside industry experts to bring their proposed user-centric ideas to reality.
Nexus
Nexus is a platform for the school community and people who share the same passion, to come together to discuss social issues and challenges. It will allow fellow educators to share best practices that can help deepen learning and broaden perspectives of students so as to inspire them to create novel solutions that will impact the community.
Capacity Building
Capacity building focuses on building up the competency levels of students. It aims to equip students with design thinking skills through the school’s Imagineering Programme, and Singapore teachers through workshops conducted at the VCA Design Thinking Academy.

A talent development programme will also be established in 2019 for the students to deepen their passion and advocacy to drive innovation for social causes in a bigger way.
