NYP has over 80 student clubs and interest groups (and growing!) across six categories. Students can enrich themselves and make new friends in fields of Arts and Culture, Community Service & Environment, Sports and Adventure, Leadership and Character Development, and Interest Groups. They can also join their school’s respective Academic Clubs where they can meet and work with students from different courses and grow together.
You will also be given numerous opportunities to grow your capabilities and life skills beyond the Polytechnic. We aim to enhance attributes like leadership and help you grow holistically by helping you understand community and global issues, and ignite your passion for various causes.
Take part in games competitions like the annual Institute-Varsity-Polytechnic (IVP) Games and Polytechnic-ITE (POL-ITE) Games. Attend seminars, workshops, training camps and exchange programmes with youths from local and regional institutions. These opportunities will also give you the chance to develop your interpersonal skills.
In partnership with Youth Corp Singapore and the National Youth Council, NYP staff and students embark on Youth Expedition Projects (YEP) on a regular basis. Such service-learning projects in ASEAN communities, as well as in China and India are invaluable for developing independence, leadership, teamwork and other life skills. The collaboration with regional communities of youths, NYP students have forged a network of likeminded friends who share the same desire to make a difference in their communities. Upon their return, NYP students then work with local voluntary welfare organizations on a three-month long project to help our Singaporean community.
Past YEP participants have gained broader perspectives of the local and overseas communities as a global citizen and bolstered their confidence and resilience as a youth expedition leaders.
This programme is available to all Singaporean students who are able and willing to commit five to six months to serving the regional and local community.
