AOL is a Social Enterprise specializing in services, programming & training for the emerging generations. We exist to be ‘life-architects’ in building a world-ready generation. AOL is an official member of raiSE Singapore (Center for Social Enterprise).
With a strong belief in human potential, AOL employs transformative concepts and strategies to design outreach, developmental and intervention programs to work with young people, ex-offenders and families. Our working principle is ‘From Stereotypes to Archetypes’.
As a sector leader, AOL’s objective is to build people holistically, sustainably, and responsibly. Our programs are guided by current evidence-based literature and studies. We integrate behavioural & developmental theories, neuro-cognitive psychology, as well as systemic and socio-cultural research in all our programming.
To Develop Emerging Generations to Become Archetypes of Society
ARCHETYPE (noun): a pattern of behavior; a prototype (model) that others copy or base on; standard example
Our vision is for every individual we work with to challenge and defy stereotypes to become positive role models for others to emulate.
What makes AOL stand out in the industry is our niche in working with ‘People on the Fringe’. AOL specializes in reaching out to offending-prone youngsters, juvenile delinquents, troubled teens, at-risk youth from disadvantaged backgrounds, and ex-offenders. Our services have been engaged on 3 platforms:
1) School-based (public & private schools in Singapore and South-East Asia)
2) Community-based (family-services agencies, community outreach orgs & shelters etc)
3) Institution-based (prisons, rehabilitation centers, instituted hostel & homes etc)
Over the years, AOL has worked with the following government and agency partners related to youth work:
