Citi-YMCA Youth for Causes

Citi-YMCA Youth For Causes (YFC) is a community initiative started by Citi and the YMCA of Singapore in 2003. Funded by Citi Foundation, the programme is a catalyst to promote social entrepreneurship and community leadership development among Singapore youths. It provides youths aged 15 to 25 with a platform which includes seed funding, training and volunteer mentorship for executing self-initiated projects to raise public awareness, funds and mobilize volunteers for Voluntary Welfare Organizations (VWOs) of their choice. YFC complements the “Values in Action” (VIA) programme as part of Ministry of Education’s Character and Citizenship Education. The youth, comprised in teams of four, will demonstrate values such as harmony, respect and responsibility as they champion their social causes.
