We employ a youth-centered and strength-based approach in our outreach, developmental programmes and specialized intervention to develop and enhance personal, social and educational growth in the youths and help them reach their full potential in society. Intervention includes case management, individual counselling and Youth Development Programmes (YDPs).
YDPs are staff-led, youth-centered and trend-based programmes designed to provide intervention, learning and meaningful engagement. They may take on the form of dance, takraw, drama and music programmes.
