The NYF supports:

Youth Development and Youth Action

The NYF aims to support initiatives that address the needs of youths, provide opportunities for personal development, and inspire positive change in Singapore.

Youth Programmes and Capability Development (YPCD) – Projects that contribute towards youth leadership development, development of various youth segments aligned with focus areas such as Jobs and Future of Work, Mentoring, Youth Mental Wellbeing, Support for Vulnerable Groups. Capability development projects that create resources to benefit youths and youth-related programmes, or uplift and develop capability of other youth sector organisations with the sharing of knowledge and resources.

Research – Projects that deepen the understanding of salient youth issues or trends. This could include:
i.   Emerging trends that would inform NYC and/ or other youth sector practitioners in programme planning;
ii.  Programme evaluation of programme models, and recommendations for good practices to be scaled-up; or
iii. Observation studies which could be contextualised and pilot-tested in Singapore.

Youth Leadership Development (YLD) – Outstanding youth leaders who wish to pursue training and development in reputable local and international platforms with the intent of leading community projects/initiatives or starting new positive social movements.

Outcomes Measurement

NYC has developed an Outcomes Measurement Toolkit aimed at helping grant recipients of the NYF measure the effectiveness of their programmes in achieving youth outcomes.

Organisations applying for the NYF YPCD grant and requesting for/ awarded a grant of more than $5,000 will be required to measure and report the impact of their programmes using NYC’s youth development outcomes. Applicants will be required to select relevant youth development outcomes and indicators using the NYF Outcomes Survey Generator, and submit it via the OurSG Grants portal with the grant application. You may refer to the toolkit in the downloads section.

Applicants requesting for a grant of over $50,000 are also required to submit a programme Logic Model, via the OurSG Grants portal.

AskPL Grant Consultation Clinics

To better support partners in your partnership journey with NYC, the Partnership Lab (PL) team will be organising a series of AskPL Grant Consultation Clinics during the NYF YPCD partnership grant call period. The AskPL Grant Consultation Clinic is an optional initiative for interested NYF YPCD grant applicants to connect with NYC first before applying for a grant during the partnership grant call application period. It is a dedicated session that provides an opportunity for interested applicants to speak with our Partnership Managers on a 1-on-1 basis, for up to an hour, to seek advice on your project scope/ idea for project refinement and clarification on your queries.
