NYC provides various funding schemes aimed at helping youth and youth sector organisations (YSO) to make their ideas a reality.
National Youth Fund (NYF) lends support to youth-led ground-up initiatives and innovations for the co-creation of social change in the community. The NYF also supports youth leaders in pursuit of training and development, to lead community projects and start new social movements. Through partnerships, the NYF aims to better meet youth needs and empower youth to be the change. Visit https://www.nyc.gov.sg/programmes-grants/grants---national-youth-fundfor more information.
Young ChangeMakers Grant (YCM) provides seed funding and support for youth-initiated projects that benefit the Singapore community and society.
