Welcome to 64 Club Street, a versatile and purpose-built social impact hub that encourages creativity and community engagement through collaboration. Supported by the JL Family Office, this transformative space was unveiled just last week, and it’s already making waves.
A Vision of Education, Empowerment, and Wellness
In a world that’s constantly changing, the need for collective action and shared initiatives is more apparent than ever. This fundamental concept is at the core of 64 Club Street’s vision, which focuses on education, empowering youth, and promoting mental and physical well-being. Guided by these essential themes, this space has been meticulously designed to be a hub of collaborative synergy, a sanctuary for boundless creativity, and a driving force for positive change.
Empowerment and Education
64 Club Street believes in the transformative power of empowerment and education. It serves as a platform to equip individuals with the knowledge and resources to become advocates of change in their communities. By partnering with local Social Service Agencies, Social Enterprises, Non-Profit Organizations, and Non-Governmental Organizations, 64 Club Street aims to elevate community impact efforts through its dynamic space. Inside its walls, dialogues and creativity flourish, paving the way toward a brighter future for the next generation.
This exceptional space spans three floors, each designed to embody 64 Club Street’s vision of education, empowering youth, and promoting mental and physical well-being through three broad themes: Conversations, Collaboration, and Calmness.
First Floor: Conversations
The first floor is all about fostering conversations. It features an open, dynamic space that can easily host community-impact events and dialogue sessions. Here, you’ll find a quaint cafe by Foreword Coffee Roasters, a social enterprise empowering individuals with disabilities, special needs, and mental health challenges through employment opportunities.
This floor also showcases initiatives by partnering social service organizations aligned with 64 Club Street’s vision, creating a vibrant hub where curiosity and conversations naturally flow over coffee.
Second Floor: Collaborations
Designed to nurture collaborations, the second floor offers communal areas, event spaces, and meeting rooms. The open spaces provide an environment for seamless conversations and the exchange of ideas among stakeholders, enabling innovative solutions to take shape. Enclosed meeting rooms facilitate focused discussions and group workshops. The second floor embodies 64 Club Street’s vision of being a platform for dialogues and creativity, providing a purposeful space for partnering organizations to brainstorm and innovate.
Third Floor: Calmness
Promoting holistic well-being, the private space on the mezzanine floor is dedicated to counseling sessions and meditation. This tranquil room is designed to promote mental and physical well-being in various ways, adapting to the user’s needs. It’s a safe space where individuals can find balance and recharge amidst the bustling Chinatown district.
A Symbol of History and Community
64 Club Street was once the Pondok Peranakan Gelam Club, a community club for the Bawean Malay community. It served as a communal home for Baweanese immigrants in the 1930s, relying on the gotong-royong spirit, or community support. Residents formed a close-knit community that supported one another in adapting to life in Singapore. The pondok became a hub for educational, social, and recreational activities. Today, 64 Club Street retains its historical significance while embracing contemporary design, blending tradition and modernity, and capturing the essence of Singapore’s cultural heritage.
A Collaborative Social Impact Hub for Upcoming Generations
64 Club Street heralds a new era of collaborative empowerment among social service organizations with a shared goal of uplifting Singaporean youth. This versatile space encourages interorganizational partnerships and cross-pollination of ideas, enabling them to collectively execute initiatives that will positively impact Singapore’s youth for generations to come.
