PLUS+ Ambassador Programme
An internship experience to Learn, Internalise and Spread Positivity around
The uncertainties brought by the pandemic, including the lack of social contacts, the mandatory quarantine and worries towards the future in general, induced stress to the public. The study of Positive Psychology and Life Education allows us to discover and nurture our character strengths, be resilience and learn the true meaning and value of life.

PLUS+ provides training to student ambassadors on Positive Psychology and Life Education. Our ambassadors will prepare workshops and develop tools to promote positivity to various community groups. Including, to design a tool to spread the message extensively to the residents of the Undergraduate Halls.

Interns of PLUS+ will receive supervision and guidance from practitioners on developing the service content and the tool.
