NYC calling for proposals for youth corp

The initial batch of Volunteer Youth Corp will start their work sometime in the middle of next year. 

And the National Youth Council is calling for proposals from community partners to jointly develop meaningful and impactful programmes for them. 

These projects can be done locally or in a regional country, over a duration of 3 to 6 months. 

They should focus on one of these five areas: Education, Health, Arts, Sports and Heritage, Special Needs or the Environment. 

Community partners are invited to submit their proposals through a Request for Proposal on the National Youth Council's Resource Portalwww.resourceportal.nyc.sg from today until the 30th of January. 

The idea for the youth corp was first announced by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong at this year's National Day rally in August. 

The corp aims to provide more opportunities and support for young Singaporeans to contribute to the community.
