YOLDEN is a regular befriending programme which aims to cater to the physical, intellectual and social emotional wellness of seniors in nursing homes. “YO” comes from the word “YOuths” and “OLDEN” comes from the word “gOLDEN” which represents seniors.
YOLDEN (Sports) aims to foster intergenerational bonds among youth volunteers and senior residents from St. Andrew’s Nursing Home (Henderson) through adapted team sports activities such as adapted badminton, vollyeball, darts and telematches. This programme is jointly curated by Agency for Integrated Care (AIC), Sport Singapore and Youth Corps Singapore.
Through regular participation and physical activity, it may improve seniors’ overall physical and mental health. Join us to spend your Saturday afternoons meaningfully!
This project is a Youth Corps Singapore regular community service programme.
Digital Clinics @ Merdeka Generation Roadshows
Technology has the potential to enrich and transform our lives dramatically, from the way we connect with each other through social media platforms, to the ability to make cashless payment. As Singapore progresses on our Smart Nation journey, we must ensure that everyone, including our seniors, are digital ready.
Youth Corps Singapore is partnering with Info-comm Media Development Authority (IMDA) to provide an opportunity for the youths to cultivate inter-generational bonding with the seniors through a digital clinic.
Digital Clinics are customised for seniors 50 years old and above, providing them with valuable learning opportunities and one-on-one assistance in using their mobile devices such as smartphones. The Clinics cater to users of both iOS and Android devices.
At the Digital Clinic, volunteers will provide one-on-one assistance to seniors who visit the clinic. The queries are usually about mobile phone settings (e.g. changing colour, font size, managing storage, technical issues), and usage of lifestyle apps. The Digital Clinic is part of the Merdeka Generation Roadshows held islandwide.
This event is part of Youth Corps Singapore’s ‘Common Space for Common Good’ signature initiative.
Good to Go!
In conjunction with Youth Corps Singapore’s 5th Year Anniversary, we are launching Good to Go!
Have you ever wondered what the unsung heroes in our society go through on a daily basis? Join us as we scoot or walk out to appreciate the daily heroes, from the cleaners to security guards, while distributing our very own YCS Care Packs to them along the Orchard Road Belt.
Through this event, we hope that youths will be able to gain insights into the lives of the unsung heroes in our community and be more appreciative of their contributions.
This is a special initiative to celebrate Youth Corps Singapore's 5th Year Anniversary,

The Red Box
Set in the heart of Orchard Road, The Red Box is a place for youths to gather, exchange ideas and take action to make Singapore a better home for all. Its name draws inspiration from the red box of Singapore’s Founding Prime Minister, Mr Lee Kuan Yew. It represents the late Mr Lee’s love and conviction towards creating a better Singapore.
The Red Box is open to all Youth Corps Members to ignite positive change in our community. Look out for various enrichment and engagement sessions at The Red Box.
