It Takes An Island exposes children to learning experiences rooted in 'real world' engagements to help prepare them for a fast-changing world.


They say it takes a village to raise a child.  In sunny Singapore, it's going to take an Island.

The future will require mindsets, skills and character traits that are beyond what our children are exposed to at home and in classrooms.  We do our best as parents and teachers, but It Takes An Island believes that the upbringing of children goes beyond family or school.

This is why we partner with experts, companies and communities that are passionate about contributing to our collective future:  the children.  Together, we can mentor, inspire and present experiences that can help our kids develop characteristics, mindsets and skills for the ‘real world’.  

Help build our Island.  Explore how we can together nurture the next generation, as they prepare to solve tomorrow’s challenges.


What Others Say

"My kids attended their inaugural hackathon event. They really enjoyed the whole process of brainstorming , getting hands-on to develop their product prototype and sharing its benefits. In addition, they enjoyed the close collaboration with other children and professionals who volunteered their time. There was great enthusiasm , fun and sense of satisfaction when they presented their final product prototype. Such hands-on experience and networking are an invaluable part of learning. Thank you to It Takes An Island for making this happen."
