Impact to the Community by Youth

Impact to the Community by Youth (Project I.C.Y.) - "Youth Initiatives that Matter, For Youth, By Youth." is a campaign encouraging youth to turn their ideas of community-based projects close to their hearts into reality by granting each approved project up to $1,000.


Tying in with the Global Youth Leaders’ Summit theme of ‘Matters That Matter’, the campaign seeks to empower youth to run initiatives that matter to them without the worry of funding, thereby creating a ripple effect of putting their best foot forward and caring for the community, regardless of age.

InnoTrek Pte. Ltd., an outdoor education organisation, has pledged $250,000 to kick start this campaign. 

Project I.C.Y. has been launched by Minister of State, Gan Siow Huang, at the Global Youth Leaders’ Summit on 17th July 2021. 


Global Youth Leaders' Summit

Every year, the Global Youth Leaders' Summit (GYLS) seeks to address pressing issues that youth face in today's world, and aims to be a catalyst for youth to gain the confidence and be equipped with skills to tackle these societal difficulties.

GYLS aims to empower youth regardless of age, nationality, religion or race to make a change in society, in the hopes for a better tomorrow.

GYLS is held every July, in conjunction with Youth Month and Nelson Mendela Day on the 18th. It is celebration of youth and to provide opportunities to discover themselves by learning, leading and serving.
