Youth Action Challenge: Jobs and Future of Work
 
Do you have what it takes what it takes to shape the economy for the future? Some possible areas could be lifelong learning, managing tech disruption, Asia readiness, narratives of success and low wage workers.
 
Take part in the Youth Action Challenge (YAC) and come up with ideas to impact the future of Singapore. The YAC is part of the SG Youth Action Plan and is designed to support youths to influence policy change and start ground-up initiatives. You will have a chance to pitch your ideas to government leaders and industry experts, and best ideas stand a chance to receive up to $50,000 in grants in a finale in April to turn them into reality.
 
Through the Challenge, you can team up with other youths to learn more about economic issues and hone your ideas under the guidance of experienced mentors and industry professionals. But it’s not just talk. Teams with good ideas will receive support to see their projects through to implementation.

About Spark the Next: SG Youth Action Plan
 
On 18 May 2019, over a hundred youths from different walks of life came together to envision Singapore in 2025. It also kicked off the series of engagements under the SG Youth Action Plan. During the event, topics such as environmental sustainability and inclusivity sparked spirited conversations among the youths, all of whom are keen to make a difference in society.
 
The SG Youth Action Plan is an extension of the youth Conversations which gathered views from more than 8,000 youths on issues that matter to them last year. From the conversations, many youths have expressed a desire to be involved – be it in defining what success in Singapore should look like, having a say on important policies, or taking action to make a change for social good. We have planned a series of sessions for you to join us and have a say in the future of Singapore!
