Organised by the Cabinet Office of Japan and supported by the governments of Southeast Asia, SSEAYP has benefited over 1,000 Singaporean youths since 1974. Through SSEAYP, participating youths have the opportunity for international exposure and leadership development as they play a significant role as youth ambassadors for Singapore. The National Youth Council (NYC), Singapore's national co-ordinating body for youth affairs, oversees the programme.

The journey promises participants with vibrant discussions on social & youth matters and eye-opening cultural exchanges. At each port of call, participants can look forward to interacting with the local youths, pay courtesy calls on dignitaries, visit local institutions and experience a unique home stay programme.
