Youth GO! Programme
Youth GO! Programme (YGP) is a youth outreach programme which is modelled after well-established street outreach services overseas such as Hong Kong's.
The key objectives are to support at-risk youth, aged 12 to 21, so that they will be meaningfully engaged either in their studies or work, stay crime-free and able to solve problems and be resilient individuals.
Youth GO! aims to bring services to the local community congregation areas and hotspots where youths hang out. The youth and social workers from the outreach service team work with local communities and government agencies to proactively engage youths where they are. Intervention is delivered within an informal and flexible programme design including case management services and interest-based activities.
The Central Youth Guidance Office (CYGO) is piloting Youth GO! in North East, North West and South West districts.
Care Corner Singapore Ltd and Fei Yue Community Services have been appointed as the VWOs to run the programme. Care Corner for the North East and Fei Yue for the North West and South West districts respectively.
