YMCA of Singapore will be holding its annual Flag Day on 18 March 2017 to raise funds for the YMCA Community Service Programmes. YMCA Flag Day aims to raise $60,000 for YMCA Silver Fiesta, an event that promotes intergenerational bonding and active-ageing lifestyle amongst the elderly.

Since its inception in 2012, Silver Fiesta is an annual event organised by YMCA of Singapore. The event engages youth volunteers from various schools and institutions in the promotion of intergenerational bonding and active-ageing lifestyle amongst elderly through Arts & Cultural based programmes, including traditional opera performances and handicrafts sessions. Silver Fiesta has enriched the lives of over 2,000 senior citizens with the support of over 1,500 youth volunteers.

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.
