Community Service Events and Regular Programmes

Youths Corps provides one-day or short-term volunteering opportunities through Community Service Events for youths who are interested to try out volunteering as well as participate in workshops and training to explore the different sectors. Youths can also deepen their skills and knowledge of a beneficiary group at the Regular Programmes through a meaningful, longer-term journey.


Common Space for Common Good (CS4CG) Grant (Regular Programmes)

The CS4CG Grant supports initiatives which rallies and mobilises youth volunteers as the force for good to tackle community and social issues through partnerships with Youth Sector Organisations (YSO) including Social Enterprises, Not-for-Profit Organisations and Social Service Agencies.


YCS is seeking to partner with Community Organisations with an interest (a) in sustaining impactful service-learning project(s) carried out by previous or upcoming cohorts of the Youth Corps Leaders Programme, and/or (b) to expose their youths to the larger YCS ecosystem to allow them to meet with other like-minded youths, and participate in volunteering and learning opportunities on a national platform beyond their organisation to sustain their volunteerism effort.


The CS4CG Grant supports:

  • Regular Programmes of at least 6 sessions a year
