About Us

Formed in 1995, the National Committee on Youth Guidance and Rehabilitation (NYGR) addresses problems and issues related to juvenile delinquency in Singapore by:

  • working with our partners to support youth-at-risk and help them find positive alternatives to crime and anti-social behaviour coordinating and reviewing existing intervention programmes to identify gaps
  • leading collaborative research on youth-at-risk issues and the effectiveness of programmes
  • developing a central system to facilitate data sharing across agencies
  • working with social service agencies, self-help groups and other community organisations to develop programmes and build capabilities
  • The Central Youth Guidance Office (CYGO) is the secretariat to the NYGR.

NYGR comprises agencies with a stake in reducing juvenile delinquency and youth crime. These include representatives from:
