The Asean Youth Community (AYC) was launched recently with the aim of serving as a platform to connect young people in the region.
The platform will seek out internship and volunteer opportunities in Asean countries for Singapore youths.
The initiative was launched at an event at Serangoon Garden Secondary School to mark the 51st anniversary of Asean. The new platform is an initiative of the Character and Leadership Academy (CLA).
Participants for the internship and volunteer opportunities will be selected by the AYC, and applications will also be open to tertiary students.
Workshops and conferences for youths from Asean are also being organized by the AYC.
