Our Campaign Story

ends 30 Sep 2020, 11:59 PM

We are Team Spark, a Citi-YMCA Youth For Causes (YFC) group from Temasek Junior College, collaborating with Beyond Social Services (BSS). Although we may be a small team of 4, we hope to be the spark that starts a far-reaching fire, spreading warmth to many people. We aspire to encourage and inspire more people to support Beyond's cause.

After some of us read the book "This Is What Inequality Looks Like" by Teo You Yenn, we realised that inequality is a multi-faceted problem that affects many aspects of people's lives. This may culminate in them being trapped in the poverty cycle, and unable to get out of it if sudden disruptions (such as loss in income) happen.

Hence, we decided to play a part in making a change in the community and signed up for YFC. Even though our actions may seem small, we want to do our best and improve our beneficiaries' lives in any way possible. We decided to partner with Beyond because their cause of helping youths break out of the poverty cycle resonated with us.

About The Charity

Beyond serves disadvantaged young people and their families to move them beyond their problems. We want to develop young people who respect the law, value education and seek to become responsible persons.

Keeping young lives on track is about building a community where they can grow, contribute and believe that they are a part of. Beyond works to build inclusive communities where young people, local neighbourhoods, and wider society, can come together to share their gifts and cooperate on resolving their issues.

We value inter-organisational collaboration & will steadily expand by building networks of individuals and organisations that contribute towards our vision. We believe that our target group always benefits when more members of the community take an active interest in their well-being.
