Volunteering at Pesta Ubin

Pesta Ubin is truly a community effort. Made possible only through volunteers. We need your help! Register here to be a FUN Ambassador.

What can FUN Ambassadors do?

Help Uncle Lim (Priority)

Every Saturday, Sunday and public holiday, Uncle Lim will be hosting two free activities at his shop in Ubin Town from 10am to 4pm! A fun kampung-themed photo booth and a giant Pulau Ubin map for everyone to colour in.

Be a FUN Ambassador at Uncle Lim's shop, Ubin Town.
FUN Ambassadors can help Uncle Lim set up the activities on these days and encourage visitors passing by to participate in them. Pre- and post-lunch shifts can be allocated later; otherwise, coming down anytime you are free is fine as well!

'Loudhailer' for the Day's Happenings

On days with activities, flyers containing information about the day's Pesta Ubin happenings will be printed by the coordinators. FUN Ambassadors can help by positioning themselves at the Ubin Jetty to disseminate the flyers while enjoying the interactions with visitors!

Social media warriors

Keen on travelling around the island instead? Kill two birds with one stone by doing just that AND taking pictures of Pesta Ubin activities ongoing for that day! Upload these photos onto your own social media as public posts, so that the coordinators can share your posts on the Pesta Ubin Facebook page.
