Registration of Interest for YCS-YEP

Hello there!

Thank you for your interest in Youth Corps Singapore - Youth Expedition Project (YCS-YEP). We are looking for participants aged 18 to 35 years old to form the teams to China, Vietnam and Indonesia! This form will take about 20 minutes to complete. Information collected in this form will be used to shortlist participants for a selection exercise. Please note that we will not be considering late or incomplete entries. You should see a "Form Submitted" page upon successful submission of this form.

Youth Expedition Project (YEP) is a Service-Learning programme by Youth Corps Singapore for youths, involving communities in Asia with a focus on the ASEAN region, China and India. YEP aims to nurture confident and resilient youths who are active citizens with the desire to make a difference both at home and overseas. The YEP Journey is about 6 - 9 months long.

There are three key phases for every YEP, i.e. Preparation, Overseas Project and Local Project:
   -  Preparation project to learn more about social issues in Singapore and overseas host community;
   -  Overseas Project with a duration of at least 10 service-learning days (i.e. 10 calendar days to be spent on service-learning activities) to be conducted in a country in Asia, with a primary focus on the ASEAN countries, China or India; and
   -  Local Project that meets a local community need, with linkage to the Overseas Project to be conducted in Singapore within 3 months upon return.

YEP is also a grant which provides partial financial support for eligible youths. All applicants are expected to contribute an initial amount of SGD600 - SGD1,000 upon being selected for the project. Amount paid by each participant (after grant) is around SGD300 - SGD700, depending on the project scope. Fundraising may be conducted to cover the costs. The YEP team reserves the right to collect payment and/or refuse a refund, in part or in whole, should participants drop out after costs have been incurred for the project.
