A supporter of the Yellow Ribbon Project
More than 9,000 ex-offenders are released from the various prisons and drug rehabilitation centers (DRCs) every year. Many of these ex-offenders faced multiple challenges in starting a new life after their release. As a supporter of the Yellow Ribbon Project, AKC assists ex-offenders in reintegrating back into society by offering employment opportunities, as well as medical care thru its medical subsidiary (AKC Medical Center).
Since the beginning of 2013, AKC Medical Center (a subsidiary of AKC) has begun offering heavily subsidized medical care for ex-offenders, including their immediate family members. Medical assistance and referrals are also provided to ex offenders and their family members for specialist medical care.
Recognition from SCORE
In recognition of its continuous efforts in hiring and mentoring ex-offenders, AKC received the Singapore Corporation of Rehabilitative Enterprises (SCORE) Model Supervisor Award in October 2012.
AKC believes that ex-offenders deserve a second chance in their lives. If they have the right attitude, each of them should be given guidance and opportunity to come good and contribute constructively back into society. Help them unlock their second prison!

AKC made a contribution to the Anderson Junior College (AJC) Scholarship Fund in 2013.
Since 2001, with the support of the AJC School Advisory Committee, the Anderson Junior College (AJC) Scholarship was set up to award outstanding Singaporean Secondary 4 students who wish to pursue their ‘A’ Level education in AJC. The AJC Scholarship aims to attract academically strong students and those with outstanding Co-curricular Activities (CCAs) talents and achievements to AJC, and further develop them holistically so as to excel in the academic or CCA areas.
Past scholarship recipients were given various development opportunities, played key roles in their CCAs and continued to excel in their academic areas. Many have also gone on to win prestigious national scholarships, contribute to the community after graduation and brought glory to the college.
The college is seeking new injections into the AJC Scholarship fund. AJC seeks further support in this effort.
