IMPROVE THE LOCAL TOILET CULTURE! BE A VOLUNTEER!
As an active voluntary, non-profit organization, RAS's calendar is filled with various interesting and fun activities all year round. As such, RAS is always on the
lookout to recruit volunteers who have a vested passion and interest, and are interested to work with us towards improving Singapore's toilet standards. We give
recognition to our volunteers at our annual LOO (Let's Observe Ourselves) Awards ceremony.
Community Involvement Programme (CIP) hours and certificates of participation are also awarded to eligible volunteers. Applicants below the age of 15 must obtain written consent of their parent or guardian before submitting their application online.

Here are some of the options available for volunteers:
Volunteer Eco-Assessors (VEAs)
Individuals who prefer flexible timings can join us as VEAs. VEAs are on the frontline of keeping our public restrooms clean. You will be trained how to assess the cleanliness of restrooms as well as to conduct mystery audits. Training will take two hours, consisting of both the theoretical and practical session.
After the training, you will feedback to us when you visit any of our Happy Toilets anytime. There are no fixed dates and timings.
We conduct educational programmes such as talks and training workshops for organisations, preschools, primary, secondary schools and tertiary institutions. Be part of our team to reach out to them and help inculcate good toilet habits. It will take 3 months inclusive of training and half or full day for talks and workshops.
Individuals who are not able to commit to longer term volunteer opportunities can join us as event volunteers. RAS requires volunteers several times each year for events. Our events and activities range from small scale events such as roadshows, seminars and workshops to national campaigns such as the annual LOO Awards, Clean and Green Singapore and School Carnivals and other events.
Individuals who prefer flexible timings can join us as support volunteers. You will provide support to projects such as designing of promotional materials or quarterly e-newsletters, data entries, database management, research, writing, editing, etc. All these duties can be carried out from the comfort of your home.
After volunteering with RAS since 2005, I am now quite attached to them and am very supportive of their activities. I also became good friends with the RAS staff.
Being a volunteer, one must be passionate, patient and a team player and most importantly to believe that one is doing a good cause for the society. I've learned many things about toilet cleanliness and hygiene which I was ignorant before I joined RAS as a volunteer. What they are doing to help Singapore achieve clean toilets is very meaningful. I hope to see more people coming forward to volunteer for this meaningful organisation, RAS."

RAS's Star Volunteer
"It started with a school project that involved us researching on developments in our society. With the craziest notion in our minds, we decided to look into toilets. Little did we know that it was a doorway into an entirely different world. After preliminary research into toilets, we discovered that Singapore actually has an organisation dedicated to improving the conditions of toilets…….
This is the first time I have volunteered to participate in such activities for the RAS and I hope I can continue to volunteer my services together with my friends. It is a noble aim to help out in toilet hygiene and cleanliness and I am proud to be part of it."
