Calling all passionate individuals!

The Kalsom Movement is thrilled to announce that the applications for our Summer Programmes in 2021 are now OPEN!

Calling non-Malaysians who want to be a part of our summer programmes this year!

THE COMMONWEALTH CULTURAL PROGRAMME (CCP)

The Commonwealth Cultural Programme (CCP) was introduced in 2013 as a collaboration between The Kalsom Movement (TKM) and The Bristol Student Commonwealth Society (BSCS) of the University of Bristol, United Kingdom. Participants of this programme previously consisted of members of BSCS, who were all non-Malaysians. The purpose of having non-Malaysian participants is to expose the beneficiaries to native English speakers as their facilitators.

Every year since then, facilitators were brought to experience traveling around Malaysia during the summertime while exploring the multi-cultural wonders of Malaysia and experiencing its beautiful intersections. One of the aspiring objectives of this initiative is to provide international youth volunteering experiences in Malaysia. Therefore, participants of this initiative will be facilitating the Confidence Through English Programme (CEP) where they will interact directly with the beneficiaries and help The Kalsom Movement achieves its mission.

However, since we are now facing a pandemic, the camp will be run in an online camp format. Each facilitator and beneficiary will participate in the camp from the comfort of their homes due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

Objectives:

  • To provide volunteering opportunities in Malaysia for international youth
  • To expose beneficiaries to English communication by native speakers via close interactions
  • To encourage beneficiaries to use more English in their conversations
  • To build meaningful friendships

Details:

  • Recruitment: 1st June – 9th June 2021
  • Camp period: 3rd – 4th July, 10th July 2021
  • Mode: Online
  • School: 2 schools, SMA Kota Gelanggi 3 and SMK Tun Razak in Pahang, Malaysia
