To turn conversation into action, we invite youths to participate in the Youth Action Challenge (YAC). YAC is a developmental platform to guide participants to deepen their understanding of issues and come up with solutions to tackle them. Teams take part in curated workshops where they learn how to turn their ideas into practical projects with a chance to receive up to $50,000 in grants. In the process, they receive guidance from mentors and industry professionals from the people, public, and private sectors, to sharpen their ideas and project proposals.
The first three seasons of the YAC saw more than 700 youths across almost 170 teams coming up with solutions in various themes such as Support for Vulnerable Groups, Environment & Sustainability and Mental Well-being.
