M³@Marsiling-Yew Tee Launched
Over 1000 people attended the launch of M³@Marsiling-Yew Tee held at Woodgrove Mega Sports Park on 7 July 2019. The event was graced by Marsiling-Yew Tee GRC Advisers, namely Minister for National Development, Mr Lawrence Wong, Minister of State for National Development and Manpower, Mr Zaqy Mohamad, Mr Ong Teng Koon and Mr Alex Yam.
At the launch event, residents were entertained by various stage performances, such as An-Nur Kindergarten, the trio of OKLETSGO, as well as Azpirasi, and a cultural dance group under the Yew-Tee CC Malay Activity Executive Committee (MAEC) Interest Groups. There were also booths showcasing the different services and opportunities available to the residents under M³@Marsiling-Yew Tee.
Led by Chairperson Mdm Rahidah Bte Mohd Noor, M³@Marsiling-Yew Tee’s primary focus is on strengthening family ties and empowering youth. Together with her team of 29 members, these volunteers will be embarking on ground outreach so as to engage residents directly and provide support where required.
M³@Marsiling-Yew Tee will also roll-out M³ key initiatives, such as KelasMateMatika@CC (KMM@CC) and Marital First Responder. There are plans to scale up KMM@CC within the GRC so that more residents can benefit from this initiative. The team will be engaging participants who had graduated from previous runs to look into areas which they can improve on for upcoming sessions.
With its launch, M³@Marsiling-Yew Tee has now officially joined the six other M³@Towns that have been launched over the past year, including M³@Tampines, M³@Paris Ris-Punggol, M³@Nee Soon, M³@Bedok, M³@Jurong and M³@Chua Chu Kang.
