Youth Day Appeal
Youth Day Appeal (YDA) is an annual nationwide fundraising campaign by Community Chest which rallies students from secondary schools and junior colleges to donate and help the less fortunate in the community.
In line with MOE's Values-in-Action Programme, YDA seeks to instil values such as respect, care and harmony among students, while providing them an avenue to put such values into actions, where we build the next generation of givers who see beyond the disabilities of our social service users. Through this campaign, we hope that students can play a part in making an impact within the community to build a caring and inclusive society.
100% of the donations raised in the appeal will go towards empowering the lives of our social service users, such as Fizzy, from more than 80 social service agencies supported by Community Chest.
