A LITTLE BIT ABOUT

YOUNG SPARKS


Young Sparks (YS) is a community initiative by Max Biocare (MBc) for children of MBc family and wider community. The idea of YS was born with the spirit of giving back and becoming a part of the community through that spirit. That is why, Young Sparks is completely free for all its patrons. It aims to create a social, intellectual and enjoyable experience for children regardless of their family’s socioeconomic status. This involvement will also provide children with a unique opportunity to learn lifelong skills and grow to their full potential.

In 2020 we plan to;

  • Develop programs and pathways for our patrons who show keen interest in mastering chess, coding and/or presentation skills.
  • Provide opportunities to participate in community activities, such as hospital welfare visits and external competition for kids who achieve certain level of proficiency in the skill of their choice.
  • Provide limited tutoring to kids in Maths, Chinese, Music, Coding, Chess, all taught by award winning students in these areas.

COME TO US TO




ENHANCE

SOCIAL SKILLS

Young Sparks is a kid’s club, founded for & driven by kids. Even though we have expert teachers on hand, we encourage our patrons to share their expertise and knowledge with other children who are interested in learning that skillset; such as chess, robotics, public speaking, and many more. This approach enables children to create new friendships, learn the importance of teamwork and acquire a knack to help. Additionally, kids develop a productive engagement with their peers through this interaction.


Let’s grow out of this shell of ours.


Working in a team is one of the most valuable lessons.




IMPROVE

LEARNING SKILLS

Young Sparks activities are designed to help a child grow as an individual through learning while having loads of fun at the same time. We provide a relaxed learning environment where kids learn new sports and hobbies, with the opportunity to take it further to a competitive level. Leadership skills are instigated in the kids who are willing and able to dispense their knowledge to others. As such, we consider encouragement and appreciation as an integral part of this learning process.


Being able to work in a team is a skill you will use forever.


You will be amazed at the type of tutors we provide.
