Upon moving out of NUS University Town, Grace and Valencia noticed they were having many conversations with alumni reminiscing about campus life. They realised that unlike hall, there was a lack of a young adult community in their neighbourhoods and few opportunities for young adults who live in the same area to connect meaningfully.
Thus came the inspiration for Friendzone!
We believe that everyone has something to offer and receive, and neighbourhoods are full of interesting people that just haven't met yet.
Thriving communities across Singapore where individuals feel connected to one another, contribute to each other and live fulfilled lives.
A nation where friendliness is the norm and people don't feel alone.
To unite diverse young adults and inspire them to create caring communities for themselves.
To animate communities through conversation, connection, and curation.
To provide countercultural perspectives and experiences, shifting narratives and norms.
Friendzone is a social organisation that develops and runs community-building programmes.
Through fun and meaningful conversation, we faciliate the uncovering of passions, stories, skills, networks, and resources individuals have and connect them to each other.
We take an assets-based approach to community building and play the role of Community Animators. We inspire and bring communities to life.
