YOLDEN is a regular elderly befriending programme which aims to cater to the physical, intellectual and social emotional wellness of the beneficiaries. “YO” comes from the word “YOuths” and “OLDEN” comes from the word “gOLDEN”, which represents the elderly.

YOLDEN (Arts) offers the elderly an opportunity to express themselves and communicate with others through art. This can be therapeutic for the elderly, and regular participation may improve an elderly's overall physical and mental health. 

Through the programme, youth volunteers will be able to befriend and engage the elderly through arts-based activities, with the aim of improving the wellbeing and quality of life of the elderly. 

This project is a Youth Corps Singapore regular community service programme.
