National Committee on Youth Guidance and Rehabilitation
NYGR Working Group Members
In 1994, an Inter-Ministry Committee on Dysfunctional Families, Juvenile Delinquency and Drug Abuse (IMC) was formed to study the problems and recommend solutions for these three areas.
1994 Report of the IMC
highlighted these key needs:
where agencies that deal with juvenile delinquency are working together to form mutually supportive strategies
amongst these agencies to roll out programmes and measures on the ground
effective measures to
commonly carried out by youths and juveniles, e.g. shoplifting, vandalism, group fights, theft.
to play their part and help them detect early tell-tale signs of their children sliding into juvenile delinquency
to play a larger supporting role in imparting values to the young
reaching out to
early school leavers
who are at higher risk of becoming young offenders
Following IMC’s recommendations, the Inter-Ministry Committee on Youth Crime (IMYC) was formed in 1995.
In 2007, the IMYC was changed to the National Committee on Youth Guidance and Rehabilitation (NYGR). From 2011 to 31 Oct 2015, the NYGR was chaired by Minister for Environment and Water Resources,
Mr Masagos Zulkifli
