This is in response to changing and unmet social needs, which requires volunteers to step up to play an active role in coming alongside Social Service Agencies (SSAs) to tackle these issues and needs.
Youth Corps Singapore acknowledges the good work that many of the IHL students are doing to serve the community. Programme X intends to uplift the experience and keep up the momentum of community involvement across the various institutions. The programme develops new and potential youth leaders in Institutes of Higher Learning (IHLs) with the skills and knowledge to not just serve the community, but to also create positive volunteering experiences for their peers, which is an integral part to sustaining the volunteerism efforts in the IHL and beyond their school days.

Participants are expected to be involved in existing community service initiatives or have the intention to lead one in the coming term.
Examples of such leadership positions may include:

Youth Corps also offers funding of up to 80% of project costs capped at $3,000 per project. In support of the larger SG Cares movement, Youth Corps Singapore encourages student leaders to consider addressing community needs within the vicinity of their schools.
In addition, as Youth Corps members, they would gain access to the various volunteering and developmental opportunities available through the larger Youth Corps’ volunteering ecosystem.
The Youth Corps Leaders Programme is the recommended next step for students who have attended Programme X to continue their volunteer leadership journey.
