About Campaignends 27 Dec 2020, 11:59 PM
Our programmes include:
- YMCA Special Needs Hospitality Training Programme, a six-month training programme that empowers and upskills youth with special needs through hospitality-related vocational skills
- Y Camp Challenge, an outdoor adventure programme that builds the confidence, resilience and independence of our youth with special needs
In our first-ever YMCA E-Flag Day, we are looking to raise $40,000 for programmes that strengthen youth with special needs so that they can lead dignified and independent lives. Every dollar donated will make TWICE the impact - thanks to support from a dollar-to-dollar matching donation through the Tote Board's Enhanced Fund-Raising Programme.
Funds raised go to YMCA Community Service Programmes.
About the Charity
*COVID-19 Update: Due to COVID-19, many vulnerable communities face new challenges. Fundraising has also become exceptionally difficult. We would like to make an appeal to all to join us in our efforts in reaching out during these tough times. Your donation will fund new initiatives and existing programmes that support these communities. Please read "Our Programmes" for more information on these programmes.
The YMCA of Singapore stands to challenge, champion and train youth to stand up and be counted as independent and effective contributors to an inclusive society.
Our "YMCA Strong" campaign is a statement of our desired outcome for all we serve - to give our clients a hand up, not simply a handout, so that each one will be strengthened to reach their potential.
Our programmes range from training and employing special needs youth to mobilising and training youth leaders and volunteers to serve the needy in society.
