About Youth STEPS

The NYC and Institute of Policy Studies (IPS) Social Lab have partnered to embark on the first national-level longitudinal study of youths in Singapore aged 17 to 24 to gain a life-course perspective and better understand young people's experiences as they live, study, work and play in Singapore and to give youths a voice to shine the spotlight on issues that matter to them.

Between 2017 and 2022, the Youth STEPS have explored youths' life evolving aspirations, values & attitudes, and achievements & mobility as they transition from adolescence to adulthood. The findings from this study will contribute towards improving policies and programmes for youth in Singapore.
