regardless of race, language or religion. As the largest youth organisation
in this sunny island, we have 100 youth groups based at the community centres/clubs
DRIVEN BY THE YOUTHS FOR THE YOUTHS
Youth Group based in their respective CCs (Community Clubs/Centres) is managed
by a Youth Executive Committee (YEC) comprising 10 to 30 members (click here for portfolios in a YEC). The
YEC initiate programmes and activities for the youths and work closely with
grassroots organisations to implement community development projects for
residents in their respective constituencies. There are also opportunities to
organize events for the youth with other YECs at the GRC or regional level. All
YECs in Singapore are divided among five regions.
