Youth Engagements

Youths are our future, and we empower them by providing a dedicated space to address policy issues and promote civic participation.

The Youth Engagement team within NYC oversees programmes aimed at offering youths a safe space to voice their views, learn about different perspectives, and discuss concerns while sharing aspirations with their peers, civil society, and the Government.

Our Programmes

By cultivating an openness to diverse views with a culture of understanding and consensus building, youth engagements set the motion for youths to play an important role in building a caring and cohesive Singapore.
