Uni-Y: A Community serving Communities
University-YMCA (Uni-Y) Singapore is the university service club of YMCA of Singapore. Currently, Uni-Y Singapore has student chapters in Nanyang Technological University (NTU), National University of Singapore (NUS), Singapore Management University (SMU), and Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD).
At Uni-Y, we go beyond being a volunteering platform, but becoming a community that emphasises on developing and empowering youths to be servant leaders who would impact the local and international communities.
Uni-Y: A Community within and between campuses
At Uni-Y, we believe it is the community that drives service. We think it’s important to build on the community we have within and between campuses even before we go on out to serve the local and international communities around us.
How do we do that? Beyond regular information sessions and booths during CCA fairs, keep an eye out for our #shareyoursmile drives. #Shareyoursmile is an encouragement movement purposed to spread cheer to fellow university students during the academic crunch-time, and to encourage them to share joy with their peers as well.
Uni-Y Singapore: Local and International Service Programmes
With an established presence across campuses, volunteers can look forward to cross-university volunteering. We offer a variety of community service programmes that reach out to different client groups.
They say you never know a man until you stand in his shoes and walk about in them – want to experience what life is like beyond our shores? Join us on YMCA’s International Service Programmes.
Uni-Y: Nurturing Community Champions
With our affiliation with YMCA of Singapore, Uni-Y Singapore has access to many volunteer development resources. Beyond workshops and volunteer training sessions, Uni-Y Singapore also offers local and international internships.
In addition, Uni-Y Members get opportunities to travel and take part in youth conferences abroad – take for example Global Youth Conference in Osaka, or SHINE Conference in Tainan.
