Youth Day Appeal turns 40!

Communities thrive when we’re Schooled to Give. Make a difference today. 

In 2024, we commemorate the 40th milestone of the Youth Day Appeal (YDA), symbolising four decades of its meaningful impact. Since its inception in 1984, the Youth Day Appeal has stood as an annual beacon for fundraising efforts, advocating for youth involvement, and rallying substantial support for communities-in-need.

Aligned with the Ministry of Education’s Values-in-Action Programme, this campaign encourages secondary school and junior college students to embrace the spirit of giving, fostering essential values of compassion, respect, and empathy from an early age.

Our youth are defined by their uniqueness. So are our beneficiaries.

100% of funds raised through Youth Day Appeal go towards empowering the lives of adults with disabilities, children with special needs and youth-at-risk, families in need of assistance, persons with mental health conditions and seniors in need of support.

Communities thrive when we’re Schooled to Give.

Being diagnosed with an intellectual disability was never a barrier to Fizzy. In fact, she went on to thrive in academics and athletics at ASPN Tanglin School, a social service agency supported by Community Chest.

Fizzy's passion and talents include fusion dance, silat and soccer – all of which she excelled in; she has performed with a silat group and represented Singapore in the Olympics Asia Pacific S.E.A Unified Football Tournament. As a recipient of the Lee Kuan Yew (LKY) Exemplary Student Award in 2020, Fizzy shows us that the sky’s the limit when it comes to fulfilling one’s potential.

APSN schools, which are supported by Community Chest, invest in students’ talents, passion and character, and help students embrace their limitations and soar beyond them.

River Valley High School

River Valley High School

River Valley High School has had a longstanding partnership with Youth Day Appeal. Through the collaboration, our students are motivated to give in monetary donations or volunteering work to the less privileged communities. We appreciate Youth Day Appeal’s approach, which is well aligned with our school’s direction, in developing our students to be concerned citizens and future leaders who are active contributors to the community. It is especially meaningful that our students are provided the opportunities to learn about and better empathise with Community Chest service users from various community groups in Singapore including adults with disabilities, children with special needs and youth-at-risk, families in need of assistance, persons with mental health conditions, and seniors in need of support. We look forward to a sustained partnership with Youth Day Appeal!

Dunman High School

Duman High School

Youth Day Appeal resonates with Dunman High School’s mission of Care, Serve and Lead.

The school inculcates in all Dunmanians the importance of showing care for the community, serving to better the lives of others, and in time exercise leadership as community changemakers.

Complementary to our school’s Values In Action efforts, we believe that Youth Day Appeal nurtures socially responsible students who are able to contribute meaningfully to the community.

We see that Youth Day Appeal brings out the best in our Dunmanians in the spirit of giving and sharing.
