Uni-Y is a community that stands to champion and develop youth to be counted as independent and effective contributors to an inclusive society. As a community, we serve both local and international communities through various volunteering programmes and initiatives for underprivileged children, youth-at-risk, youth mental wellness, and the migrant worker community.

A strong foundational platform for university youth to grow in both tangible and intangible skills, and be raised as a generation of leaders can be expected. As a CCA with YMCA (Young Men’s Christian Association) of Singapore as its parent organisation, we believe that youth can also use this platform to put their faith into action through servant leadership. Skills-building such as peer mentoring, facilitation, and first aid training will be incorporated to empower each member in the CCA.

"After experiencing Y-Tutor and seeing how the kids benefitted from this programme, it spurred me to contribute back to the community and do more to reach out to other beneficiaries. Hence, I felt that Uni-Y would be a great platform for me to achieve this personal goal."

- Pearlina Cheng Yoke Leng, Lee Kong Chian School of Business, Year 2

"I choose to sign up for Uni-Y because I participated in Y Craft It! during the summer break and I felt that I had a good time. Hence I would like to continue my journey and involvement in more Uni-Y projects!"

- Lam Kai Yi, Year 2, School of Economics
