Counsellor (Group Therapy Programme)
Glyph is an investment backed social enterprise dedicated to combating Inequality in Asia.
We feel strongly about equalizing wealth equality because people lacking the resources, exposure and conducive environment from young; lack the confidence, skill sets and relationships to capitalize on the opportunities in life.
Even when they try to acquire these qualities, skills and networks later on in life, it's so much more difficult for them to succeed or break out of a vicious cycle.
Glyph disrupts this cycle by being a locally recognized and trusted brand which enables kids and youth from lower income households or single/dysfunctional families, to have access to affordable privileges in life.
We do so by operating businesses which provide quality goods and services, at heavily subsidized rates to any family whose kid is enrolled as a Glyph member.
Our Community space operates the core membership business which gives access to weekly activities, workshops, field trips which are non-academic in nature, but instead, designed to cultivate Character, Collaboration and Communication skills.
More importantly, Glyph exist as a safe space to forge valuable relationships which serve as their emotional support pillars outside of school or family; where many kids or youth tend to be struggling in.
Our Academy develops specialty programmes and curriculum in the genres of Technology, Arts, and Life-skills; designed to foster Computational and Critical Thinking capabilities while building Creative capacities.
Above all, the Academy aims to help kids and youth build qualities and find their strengths through alternative subject areas which they could be passionate in, but lack the opportunity or exposure to in the first place.
Our Fitness platform serve as an inspirational ground for aspiring athletes to develop enduring qualities, a nurturing ground to build sports skills; a symbol which Champions resonate with in their pursue of Sporting Success, in spite of the pessimistic view of Sports being a dangerous plunge into an unsecured future.
Even if families lack sporting ambitions, Glyph Fitness remain an active advocate of "Fitness for Life", for we believe fitness is a powerful conduit in developing the traits needed for an individual to be successful later on in life.
