About Us

One of the most well-rounded and holistic activities on campus, the National Youth Achievement Award (NYAA) Programme allows participants to choose activities that interest them in their pursuit of the prestigious Gold Award. NYP's NYAA Programme offers members a sustainable framework designed to help young people improve character, resilience and stamina. 

Essentially a do-it-yourself kit for youth development, the aim of the NYAA Programme is to encourage and motivate young people between the ages of 14 and 25 to develop personal qualities of self-reliance, perseverance and sense of responsibility to themselves, society and the nation. Nanyang Polytechnic, as one of the NYAA Operating Authorities, provides guidance and supervision to ensure that the NYAA participants will be able to complete their programme successfully.
