About Campfire

Campfire is a launchpad that empowers Youths from diverse backgrounds with real-world experience that will inspire and prepare them for their next phase of life.

Yes, this means potential internships, upskilling for potential career progression, and intensive mentorships by industry experts that would potentially help youths to get a head start in their careers.

Campfire hopes to empower Youths from diverse backgrounds with creative solutioning skills to solve real-world challenges of today. So, if you have a passion for change and want to make a difference in the society, you’re who we’re looking for!

Expect to be given lectures by industry professionals, mentorship by Braintrust Advisors, and coaching by award-winning creatives.

We’ll also be issuing you with problem statements that are developed for real clients to work on, all in the spirit of giving you as much real-world experience as possible!

Yes and no.

We welcome participants to join us as part of their internship, and will work with their various institutions to do so as well. Typically, participants who do so will be able to continue working at Tribal Worldwide Singapore as an intern to fulfil credits that they need.

Participants who enrol as interns will be given an internship fee that will be discussed during the selection process.

Campfire is a partnership by the National Youth Council, *SCAPE, and Tribal Worldwide Singapore.

The programme will be a mixture of live lectures at *SCAPE, as well as remote sessions online.

The first cycle happens on the 1 Apr 2021 to 14 May 2021.

Campfire begins with a 2-week accelerated learning programme, led and lectured by the heads of departments at Tribal Worldwide Singapore, under the TX Framework. These sessions will be held from Monday to Friday, 9am to 6pm.

After the 2 weeks, participants will work in teams with assigned mentors to refine and develop their ideas for a final pitch. Teams should arrange for meetings in their own time. However, there will be 6 mentorship sessions (online / on-ground check-ins) with Tribal and Braintrust Advisors (two a week).

In the final week of Campfire, participants will have a day where they present and pitch their proposals to the client who issued the problem statement.

After the programme, participants may get the chance to see through their ideas to fruition, gaining awareness and experience in developing ideas for the community / Social-for-good initiatives, should their proposal be selected for execution.

Eligibility and Enrolment

You are eligible if you are a Singaporean Citizen or Permanent Resident aged 18 to 35 years old, who’s either a:

  • Current or recent graduate from ITE, polytechnics and universities
  • Young working adult who’s seeking learning & development opportunities

The programme was designed for Singaporeans and PRs, aged 18 to 35 years old.
Unfortunately, we will not be able to enrol non-Singaporeans.
But, do connect with us and we will review your application anyway on a case-by-case basis.

Nothing.
Ok, you might need to pay for your own morning kopi and lunch, but beyond that, this programme is completely free of charge.

Not at all! We’re looking for bright, committed, and passionate youths to join us regardless of your background or current specialisation.

Not at all!
Campfire is open to Youths from the age of 18-35, so we welcome you even though you’ve graduated, are not enrolled in an Institute of Higher Learning, or have dropped out.

Registration

Participants will receive a certificate of completion upon meeting the minimum requirements of the programme.

Programme

Yes, this is possible, but it will depend on your performance and an endorsement from mentors whom you will be working closely with the programme.

The selection committee will allocate teams based on the skill sets and background of each individual.

Should you have issues with your team, do reach out to your mentors.

Yes, please do so. Just send us a note that you’d like to be grouped together as a team before the programme starts.

We are committed to helping you succeed, and we hope that you will partner with us to do so.

We expect our participants to put in at least 90 hours in attendance for the full programme. It is mandatory for participants to attend all the lectures during the first 2 weeks (accelerated course).

Beyond that, participants are expected to contribute meaningfully to their teams and help tackle the problem statements that will be given.

This is a group of curated industry leaders that the Campfire participants will have access to.
Check out who they are here.

Help

Do expect for the first 2 weeks of the programme (accelerated learning) to be a full-time commitment from Mon – Fri, 9am to 6pm. Teams will be scheduled to attend the lessons at *SCAPE once or twice each week, and log on for remote learning for the other lessons.

However, beyond the 2 weeks, the commitment level becomes more flexible as participants are expected to work independently and schedule twice-a-week check-ins with their Campfire mentors.

A minimum of 90 hours should be put in by participants to graduate from the programme.

You don’t want to know.
Nah…

We do take a serious view about participants not honouring their commitment to the Campfire programme, but will review the reasons for a participant’s forfeit on a case-by-case basis.
