Youth Division

A key thrust of my work in Youth Division is the development of the SG Youth Action Plan. Youths are our future, and we see the potential to go beyond engagement, and instead work together with youths by giving opportunities for them to be heard and be the change in taking action in issues they care about. Over the past year, I have been working closely with the National Youth Council, youth leaders and partners to hear youth voices of their aspirations and concerns. We learnt new ways to reach out to them and building relationships. Many youths have shared their concerns but they also want a Singapore where they care for the environment and those in need, believe in the importance of building an inclusive and progressive society with everyone having a fair shot at their dreams.

What has been most meaningful for me is that we have a chance to bring together youths from different backgrounds and life stages to take action in issues like mental health and supporting vulnerable groups. We helped to connect youths with government agencies and industry experts so that they can work out policy recommendations and programmes in support of youth needs and aspirations. It is heartening to see how these partnerships and relationships grow and uncover creative and practical ideas. My hope is that my team’s efforts have helped contribute to giving youths a stake in our future and new ways of working together.

Youth Division

The Youth Division in MCCY works closely with the National Youth Council to study the state of youth in Singapore. We focus on understanding youth values, attitudes and behaviours, analysing trends that impact youths, making sense of youth sentiments on issues that concern them, and empowering them to shape their future.

My role in the Youth Division spans a wide range of areas. I work on the Somerset Belt project, which seeks to transform the area into a vibrant youth precinct. Our team engages with youths, stakeholders and various agencies to co-create a space for youth, by youth. I am also part of the research team that looks at how youth are doing and identifies policy gaps or opportunities for improvement.

My work gives me the opportunity to see the big picture, while simultaneously being grounded in citizens’ views. As a youth myself, I enjoy studying youth data and exploring ways to improve the overall well-being of youths. It is also interesting to generate possibilities for youth to develop and grow. Despite facing challenges, it is a joy working with my colleagues who are helpful and supportive. I am also grateful for the open and honest environment in MCCY where our individual perspectives are always welcomed.
