Student Clubs and Interest Groups

With more than 80 student clubs and interest groups to enrich your academic life and widen your social circle, you can be sure there’s never a dull moment at NYP.

There’s so much to choose from – Arts and Culture; Community Service and Environment; Sports and Adventure; Leadership and Character Development; or Societies. You name it, we have it!

Or, you can also join your school’s Academic Clubs where you can get to know your peers and seniors from your own diploma and school!


Test your mettle through healthy competition

Take part in competitions like the annual Institute-Varsity-Polytechnic (IVP) Games and Polytechnic-ITE (POL-ITE) Games. Or attend seminars, workshops, training camps and exchange programmes with youths from local and regional institutions.

Through these opportunities, you’ll develop your interpersonal and leadership skills and gain a deeper understanding of community and global issues, which might even fire up your passion for a special cause.


Grow and learn outside the classroom

Are you interested in:
- Building your confidence and resilience?
- Making a difference in someone’s life?
- Serving the local and regional communities?

If you answered ‘Yes’ to any of the questions, then join a Youth Expedition Project (YEP)!

Organised by Youth Corp Singapore and NYP student leaders, the programme takes you to ASEAN communities, and to China and India too. When you return, you’ll get a chance to collaborate with a local voluntary welfare organisation on a meaningful three-month-long project.

The entire programme lasts five to six months but the skills you pick up – independence, leadership and teamwork – will stay with you for a lifetime.

Youth Expedition Projects (YEP)

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.
