Positive transformation

Adapting to the current environment which prohibits large gatherings, our Fit-For-Future programme applies the same techniques and content from our Youth Transformation Programme. Utilising our digital foundation platform, students are encouraged to engage in a positive transformation by focusing on developing their emotional intelligence, creativity, understanding their own personalities, their strengths and weaknesses, and developing a long-term vision and mission. This is done by setting realistic SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound) goals through engaging and interesting activities. Using a proven emotional intelligence framework, and engaging activities focusing on expressing positive emotions such as empathy and gratitude, students are taught self-awareness, self-management, social awareness and relationship management.

What our students say

"The Fit-For-Future programme is fun and interesting. It increases my knowledge about my personality, behaviour and SMART goals so that I can start planning to achieve success".

Henry Tan, July 2021 Fit-For-Future Participant

"It is a very good start and a good first impression for me in my university life. Through the Fit-For-Future programme, I identify my goals and my dream job. HWUM is my new starting point so I will do my best in my studies, get a scholarship and study abroad in the UK"!
