Transcript of Untitled Prezi



Community support is vital

"You can't rehabilitate an offender divorced of his family." (Goy, 2013).

“The actions of volunteers will demonstrate to ex-offenders that people from the community care and accept them.” (SACA, 2009)

Social Workers are the ones who also guide ex-offenders throughout the whole process...
(SACA, 2009)

The title ‘CommuniTEA’ came from combining the words  ‘community’ and ‘tea’.

The analogy of making a cup of tea relates to the reintegration process and how the community plays a part.

Why CommuniTEA
Step 1: Find a Tea Bag
Represents ex-offenders
Key factor
Put in effort
Receptive towards help

Step 2: Place the tea bag into a cup

Represents Society
Holds all factors together

Step 3: Pour hot water into the tea cup

Represents volunteers and family
Hot water vs Cold water
Supportive - Warm conducive environment
Unsupportive - Cold environment

Step 4: Stir the tea

Represents social workers
Stirs all ingredients together

How to make CommuniTEA
Step 5 : Enjoy the Tea!
To create public awareness about the various groups in the community involved in helping ex-offenders during their reintegration.

Yellow Ribbon Project is a community initiative in Singapore that aims to create awareness of the need to give second chances to ex-offenders, generate acceptance of ex-offenders and their families in the community, and to inspire community action to support the rehabilitation and reintegration of ex-offenders into society (Yellow Ribbon Project, 2009).
