Youths will have more opportunities to make a difference within the space of environmental sustainability in Singapore under the National Environment Agency’s (NEA) latest programme.

In collaboration with the Youth Corps Singapore, NEA has launched the Youth for Environmental Sustainability (YES) edition of the Youth Corps Leaders Programme. 

Developed in support of the Singapore Green Plan 2030, the programme aims to develop strong youth leaders to facilitate active green citizenry. 

Spanning over a period of nine to 12 months, it will let participants aged 17 to 25 lead projects or movements that tackle pressing environmental issues in the community.

Such opportunities will help them hone their skillsets, knowledge and experience with environmental sustainability issues. 

Applicants for the YES programme will have to go through a selection exercise which consists of activities and an interview with Youth Corps before being accepted into the programme.

Participants who successfully complete the programme will be appointed as both a Youth Corps Leader and a NEA Youth Ambassador and can look forward to further post-programme opportunities with Youth Corps and NEA. 

Those who are interested in making a difference in the area of environmental sustainability can sign up for the programme here. Registration for the YES programme ends on Aug 15. 

Thereafter, a mandatory information session will be held at The Red Box on Aug 18.
