Vision and Mission YMCA of Singapore is a volunteer-based Christian organisation that seeks to serve and impact all members of the community regardless of race, language or religion, through programmes, services and enterprises to develop the body, mind and spirit.
Case for Support Established in 1902, YMCA has been at the forefront of serving the community in Singapore.

Here are highlights of the 3 key areas of YMCA's work in 2012:

Community Service

Through structured and sustained local and overseas community service programmes, we continue to provide opportunities for volunteers to touch the lives of the less privileged such as the intellectually challenged, physically challenged, abused and underprivileged children, the elderly and the poor.

Collectively, YMCA volunteers gave over 179,000 hours of their time in serving the less privileged locally and overseas.

In Singapore, more than 6,400 YMCA volunteers were involved in some 568 activities to bring cheer to over 3,600 beneficiaries from 37 partnering voluntary welfare organisations (VWOs) across 19 structured and sustained YMCA-Tan Chin Tuan Community Service Programmes.

Another 1,300 YMCA volunteers were involved in more than 57 YMCA International Service Programmes to countries including Cambodia, China, Laos, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Vietnam to teach basic English and computer skills, conduct health education and help in refurbishment works to improve the local educational facilities in the villages.

We continued our efforts to reach out to out-of-school youths and youths-at-risk through YMCA Project Bridge, where over 1,300 hours in counselling and intervention sessions were put in by YMCA Project Bridge caseworkers for 500 youths. This was done in collaboration with more than 50 schools and VWOs across Singapore.

We also continued to offer financial assistance to needy families through the YMCA Financial Assistance and Capability for Employment Scheme. During the year, over $40,000 in financial assistance was given to 110 needy individuals and families in collaboration with eight organisations.

Volunteer Development

As a volunteer-based organisation, volunteers are the driving force behind YMCA’s efforts in serving the community. We therefore strive to provide our volunteers with structured training programmes to build a firm foundation, from which they can maximise their strengths to better serve others with their gifts and talents.

Structured training programmes, such as the YMCA-NUS Business School Volunteer Service Management Programme and the YMCA Leadership and Management Programme were conducted for over 160 people during the year.

We also continued to encourage corporate volunteerism and work with corporations seeking ways to serve or give back to community.
We managed to secure the partnership of 18 corporations on a sustained basis during the year.

On 9 November, we honoured 36 outstanding individual and corporate volunteers at the annual YMCA-Lim Kim San Volunteers Programme Outstanding Volunteers Awards ceremony. Mr Laurence Lien, Nominated Member of Parliament and CEO, National Volunteer and Philanthropy Centre, presented the awards to the volunteers.


Youth Development

As a youth organisation, we strive to develop youths to build capacity for YMCA and the social service sector. Through YMCA youth development programmes, we aim to build character and groom young adults into responsible community champions who can impact and lead the community.

Through the Citi-YMCA Youth For Causes 2012 which was in its 10th year, 400 youths in 100 teams raised over $600,000 for 43 adopted VWOs.

Through our 4 youth service clubs, namely University YMCA (Uni-Y) @ Singapore Management University, Uni-Y @ National University of Singapore, Uni-Y @ Nanyang Technological University and High School YMCA mobilised over 1,770 volunteers who put in more than 45,600 volunteering hours to serve the community across 86 activities during the year.
