Youth Leadership Development Programme

Modelled after outdoor education programmes in Australia, we hope to introduce a self-discovery and leadership development programme that is almost similar but with a local twist. Using the outdoors as our educational medium, we hope to bring out the best of participants through meaningful and purposeful activities that are conducted locally in Singapore.

Through our self-discovery and leadership development programme, we hope that our participants will be able to:

  • Appreciate the outdoor environment and learn how they can minimise their impact to the environment
  • Build their confidence and self-esteem
  • Communicate effectively to work with other people
  • Develop leadership skills
  • Embark on a journey of self-discovery to learn more about themselves and their preferences

Organised and conducted by Melvin Lee, an experienced educator and outdoor practitioner with more than 11 years of experience working with students of all ages; Melvin’s desire is to forge a closely-knitted team where every participants can have their voices heard, an opportunity to lead, and the ability to make a difference in their community.

As a certified Habitudes Facilitator and having served the National Youth Achievement Award Gold Award Holders’ Alumni as an Executive Committee Member, Melvin strongly believes in the value of leadership development and service learning. From having led a youth delegation to Peru in 2016 for APEC Voices of The Future to being a participant of the Singapore-Swiss Youth Bilateral Exchange Programme in 2015; Melvin recognises an urgent need to develop the youths of today to meet future global challenges.
