Welcome to your journey towards positive change.
At WOW Kampung, we focus on turning knowledge into competencies through experiences like no other.
Through brain-based, experiential, and place-based methods, we design learning experiences using our Living Classroom©
philosophy to translate real world issues with rigour.
Our learners join a community of Activators of Change, equipped with the right qualities, values and skills for emotional navigation,
empowered with self-worth to take control, embodying resilience, emphatical awareness, and the innovative attitudes to solve
the challenges of now and the future.
Learners of WOW Kampung will activate 3 key distinctions in their growth:
CONFIDENCE OF SELF AND DEEPENED CONNECTIONS WITH OTHERS
The ability to take charge of your physical, emotional, and mental states, and the confidence to nurture your values, passions, dreams, and abilities.
Social Emotional Learning (SEL)
The ability to navigate emotions and manage relationships through self-awareness, empathy and sustained habits of change.
The ability to develop deeper relationships and appreciate social and cultural diversity, and the ability to energize
and rally others leads to strengthening of community culture and working as a team - preparing learners to be better leaders.

A COMMUNITY OF ACTIVATORS OF CHANGE
Gain exposure and apply learning through real work, in real spaces, with real people, and address real issues.
Activators of Change
Leverage on learning to transcend beyond the classroom and activate change in daily life to achieve a driven sense of joy and purpose.
Access to a Community of Activators of Change
Connect and learn from like-minded life winners to sustain and lead the change through support, engagement, and initiatives.
This framework unpacks into four expanding circles, explaining how the learner’s experience aims to nurture a WOW Person,
focusing on Confidence as a significant part of positive Wellbeing.
Circle 1: 5-Step Growth Process
Centred at the core of the framework is a 5-step process of continuous growth to impart future-ready qualities and skills,
while emphasising on the importance of our connections and contributions to the Environment and Community.
This process is facilitated through three phases of Opener, Learner and Ignitor.
Circle 2: Social Movement
The Social Movement is a crucial phase of facilitated learning through active contributions and self-reflections.
It is a circle we encourage learners to constantly revisit in their journey of finding meaning in their growth,
and to understand the value they can provide in the process of giving.
Circle 3: Apprenticeship
Apprenticeship is a choice to immerse and apply in the real world, alongside the WOW team,
to acquire real work experiences while being mentored through the projects and engagements the apprentice delivers on the ground.
Circle 4: Activators Of Change
Is being recognised as an Activator of Change. As an Activator, you contribute and have access to
like-minded people among the WOW community; to sustain your growth through sharing and gathering skills for training,
leading, and entrepreneurship. Creating opportunities for more learners to become a WOW Person by connecting and contributing
to the Environment and the Community. To be future-ready!
WOW Kampung Future-Ready Matrix
Outlines the qualities, values, and skills towards taking action for self, family and friends, the community and the environment.
The 5 Ways to Wellbeing
Researched and developed by the New Economics Foundation (NEF), the 5 Ways to Wellbeing is a model that makes wellbeing actionable,
simple, and able to be integrated into living, allowing us to develop a balanced approach to mental, social, and emotional wellbeing.
Stimulating the freedom of expression and connecting to the human's inner child-likeness, socio-drama serves as a platform of purposeful group play to widen perspectives,
bring out the creative and expressive self, and provide learners new techniques to help articulate difficult topics or ideas.
Living Classroom © Philosophy
Using experiential and place-based techniques, our experiences immerse learners into a real space and connect with the
Community and the Environment through doing real work required on the ground, and thereby contributing authentically
to real people towards real impacts.
As a large part of learning goes beyond the hours of a workshop or camp and is nestled in
self-reflection after the programme and self-learning through application,
WOW toolkits are designed to sustain learning through various brain-based techniques,
such as Meaning-Making, Habits Building, and Skills Mastery.
