"Team Malah spent two weeks in Chengdu, China. We spent half our trip at Xian He School where our main goal was to expose the students there to expose students to the world beyond their community and, boost their confidence in speaking in a foreign language."

YEP



Youth Expedition Project (YEP) is a Service-Learning Programme by Youth Corps Singapore to nurture confident and resilient youths who are active citizens with the desire to make a difference both at home and overseas.

The YEP model has been revamped to allow teams to conduct a project where teams are allowed to volunteer with the overseas host country both physically and online. Teams will also undertake a Learning Journey to have a better understanding of the relations and cooperation between Singapore and the overseas host country. National Youth Council will be accepting applications and approving grants for YEP trips taking place from 1st August 2022 onwards.

YEP-GO

YEP Goes Online (YEP-GO) is a digital volunteering programme for youths to continue doing good with our overseas communities. Youths can connect with overseas partner organisations to develop meaningful programmes virtually.
