CITI-YMCA YOUTH FOR CAUSES (YFC) 2016
Singapore Children’s Society is pleased to be part of Citi-YMCA Youth for Causes (YFC) 2016. Citi-YMCA Youth for Causes (YFC) is a community initiative started by Citi and the YMCA of Singapore in 2003.
Funded by Citi Foundation, the programme is a catalyst to promote social entrepreneurship and community leadership development among Singapore youth. It provides youth aged 15 to 25 with a platform which includes seed funding, training and volunteer mentorship for executing self-initiated projects to raise public awareness, funds and mobilise volunteers for Voluntary Welfare Organisations (VWOs) of their choice.
This programme gives us an excellent platform to develop community youth leaders and build up our resources through the mobilisation of volunteers to raise public awareness and funds our cause.
This year, we are pleased to be working with the following three teams: Project Elysian, Vitae and JoViAL. Fundraising by the teams for Singapore Children’s Society are currently on-going so please do support them!
