Youth Engagements In Partnership with Government Agencies

Our partnership with youths is what shapes the National Youth Council. We work with a myriad of partners, including government agencies, for young people to have a voice on national issues.

These issues could range from transport to environment & sustainability, and mental health wellbeing. As part of the on-going Forward Singapore (FSG) exercise launched by Deputy Prime Minister Lawrence Wong in 2022, youth engagements played a key role in raising issues which the Government and Youths need to work on together, so as to strengthen our social compact. This was done through a series of seven National Youth Dialogues. Watch the highlights from some of these FSG led National Youth Dialogues below.

Types of Youth Engagements

Beyond giving youth a space to address policy issues, we promote civic participation amongst youth. Singapore is a small country that is ethnically and religiously diverse, and differences can only be bridged with civic conversations. Differences shape us as individuals, but being able to agree to disagree respectfully, shapes us as a society.
