14th Biennial General Meeting ushers in 12 new youth leaders

Bringing youths together... A common mission of all the volunteers of the People's Association Youth Movement (PAYM).

Here at Eunos Community Club (CC) Youth Club, the 13th term Eunos CC Youth Executive Committee (YEC) ended with spectacular achievements. From 2009 to 2011, the YEC participated in about 70 activities, collaborated with other Eunos Grassroots Organisations as well as the Bedok North Service Learning Club (SLC) in extending outreach to youths via new media, sports & wellness, community engagement and community service programmes.

The efforts that our youth leaders and volunteers put in culminated in the Eunos CC YEC being awarded the PAYM Youth Club Meritorious Youth Club Award 2010. Our SLC, under the mentorship of the YEC, also did well and received the PAYM SLC Project Accolade in 2009 and 2010.

Over 100 Eunosians support Earth Hour

Never mind the numerous large-scale Earth Hour events happening around Singapore that night. Youths from the Eunos Heights Youth Network (Eunos Zone '3' Residents' Committee Youth Chapter) and Eunos Community Club (CC) Youth Executive Committee initiated and planned an Earth Hour celebration for Eunosians at Eunos CC.

Interactive Games

This is the first-ever Earth Hour event conducted within Eunos (Aljunied GRC) itself. The event was supported by Aljunied Town Council, which switched off the billboard lightings within Eunos; Eunos Community Club, which switched off most of the ground floor lightings; and the National Environment Agency, with informative collaterals for participants.

The principal objective of the 2-hour event was to create awareness to the Earth Hour movement to the grassroots. Some participants got to know about this global movement that evening.
Participants also gathered to make a pledge to protect the Environment by forming a large "60" (the symbol of Earth Hour).

Vegan buffet dinner was served.

Thanks to our volunteers and participants for making this historical moment possible!

The SSEAYP Experience - Goodwill Mission to Japan & ASEAN

Eunos CC YEC Vice-Chairman Fong Yoong Kheong participated in the 37th Ship for Southeast Asian Youth Programme (SSEAYP) 2010. SSEAYP is an annual programme sponsored by the Japanese Government and supported by the member-countries of ASEAN. It brings together more than 300 youths from ASEAN countries and Japan, providing them with the unique opportunity to live together on board the ship Fuji Maru for over 40 days. This year's theme for SSEAYP is "Youth Participation in Social Activities".

Yoong Kheong was the Chairperson of the Discussion Committee & Webmaster for the Singapore Contingent. During the programme, he represented the contingent as a member of the Discussion Programme Steering Committee.

Let's have a glimpse of what goes on before and during the 53-day life-changing journey!

At Changi Airport

After the SSEAYP selection process, the 28 Singapore Participating Youths (SPYs) had to undergo a 2-month long pre-departure training, which equipped them with basic cultural knowledge of the other ASEAN & Japan, and allowed them to source for sponsorships and prepare the materials/logistics required for the programme. The SPYs also had to prepare cultural performances to be showcased during the programme.

Inauguration Ceremony


The 37th SSEAYP brought the PYs to Tokyo, Port Klang, Bangkok, Jakarta, Singapore and Ho Chi Minh City.

Performance graced by Her Highness Princess Akishino

In Tokyo, the PYs participated in the Japan-ASEAN Youth Leaders Summit 2010 together with over 100 Local Youths from Japan.

On board the ship Fuji Maru, there are various activities for participants to take part in.

Participants are divided into Solidarity Groups (SGs). Each SG has a more or less equal representation of gender and nationalities.
