Kicking Off AmCham’s 2016 CSR Partnership with the South East CDC

With the Board’s selection of the South East Community Development Council (SE CDC) as our charity partner for 2016, AmCham has launched an exciting program of CSR activities in this area that is home to many AmCham member companies.


The AmCham Career Kickstarter program got off to a great start on July 27.  This program aims to help high school students understand the diversity of their future career opportunities, the many paths to success, the importance of remaining open to new experiences, and the value of openness to risk and error.  Young executives from Citi, Coca-Cola, and P&G enthralled an audience of 50 Temasek Secondary School students with lively interactive presentations and an equally lively question and answer session.

As part of our 14th Corporate Community Day on October 22, AmCham and SE CDC will co-host a Walk for Rice.  Guests of honor Minister for Social and Family Development, Tan Chuan-Jin and U.S. Ambassador Kirk Wagar will wave the starting flags at ITE College East, 10 Simei Avenue, Singapore 486047.  AmCham and NTUC will donate a bowl of rice to a needy family for every 100 meters each participant walks.  Please keep an eye out for the email inviting AmCham members to register along with your families, friends, and colleagues.  Let’s earn as many bowls of rice as we can!
