Repair Kopitiam is an initiative since November 2014. Thousands of volunteers have benefitted from our training and have experienced coaching the multitudes of public visitors to repair the wide range of items. Through this mentorship program, Repair Kopitiam has grown from 1 location in Jurong to another 2 locations in Tampines and Ang Mo Kio by 2019. We are expanding further so watch out for more locations.
As Repair Kopitiam grows, we are not just looking at expanding our reach. The greater focus of importance is to build the strengths of our volunteer coaches in numbers as well as in knowledge. As such, we welcome anyone who has the passion to learn, share and fix stuff to come forward to offer their time and knowledge to coach their neighbours to fix their beloved items. Take your first step to become a Repair Kopitiam coach by signing up with our next season.
We are looking for venue organisers who are looking to host and operate Repair Kopitiam at their locations to provide needed repair coaching service to their neighbours and residents in their vicinity. Building a community of repair coaches in your ward is a very meaningful and fulfilling activity that harnesses the community cohesion and spirit whilst building the repair culture we so need to tackle the waste issues we have today.
For those who can’t find the time to volunteer with us, feel free to join us when you can during your free time when we host our public event. We are very happy to coach you to repair the item your brought with you. Please see our Facebook cover photo for details
For those who want to learn DIY skills can join our handyman courses. These courses are supported and heavily subsidised by NSA and Skills Future. We cover many types of DIY skills that you can apply practically anywhere. Our courses are designed to give you the biggest impact through step-by-step concept understanding and hands-on activities.
