The Youth Information System (YIS) shares information on Singapore’s youth-at-risk among 3 ministries:
- Ministry of Education
- Ministry of Home Affairs
- Ministry of Social and Family Development
This information is used to develop initiatives that:
- engage youths to steer them away from negative influences and potential crime or delinquent behaviour
- provide a positive environment for development
- reduce the number of youth becoming at risk and in risk
YIS will also enable the Ministries to better formulate their youth policies, develop more tailored programmes for the youth and fine-tune youth research studies.
The Central Youth Guidance Office (CYGO)leads in the development of YIS. As the secretariat to NYGR, the Office coordinates the data-sharing collaboration among the three Ministries.
