Blossom Youth Development Programme
Calling all YOUTHS with the passion to lead, serve and contribute back to society through voluntary work...come join the Blossom Youth Development Programme for free!
Meant for youths aged 13 – 35, the Programme aims for positive character-building with the right values and to inculcate awareness and empathy in youths for the bigger good of society, beyond personal achievements such as academic success. Guidance and mentorship will be given through the Programme where youths can learn how to organize, run and manage an event; lead a team, hone leadership, social and communication skills to become leaders in their own professions, and become equipped with the know-how to deal with people from diverse backgrounds.
Specifically, the Blossom Youth Development Programme encompasses three different stages - "Outreach”, “Experiential” and “Leadership”.

A smile is the universal language
We are so happy and honoured to have 100 overs of like-minded people like you from all over the world, of different races joining us on Saturday, 18 November 2017! It was not just a typical cleanup activity as every piece of plastic that we picked up may indirectly save a live.
Our environment needs our help to kickstart its healing process. We can take achievable actions to save our environment, in the process indirectly saving ourselves from the negative effects of a polluted environment.
One beneficiary shared that she felt so delighted to have you guys around, warming her heart by emanating positive vibes and enthusiasm by dancing and singing while cleaning her unit.

Heartwarming experience… everybody did their part and helped each other.
Managing conflicting schedule yet meaningful..
Seeing everything falling into place, the smiles on the faces of volunteers and the elderly swaying to the music, I couldn't help but shed tears of joy.
Although the time spent was limited, the warm company that we have brought to the elderly goes a long way.
It has been an awesome journey for me and i do not intend to end it here. Here's why...
It was a very enriching experiencing planning an event, which imparted me useful skills, while at the same time brought happiness to the elderly.
Learning and Blossoming in so many ways
Planning an event - Great time spent
The huge sense of accomplishment from improving our beneficiaries’ living condition was the reason behind these genuine smiles.
Being in a team, helps to patch the shortcomings of any individual and with a common goal, nothing is unattainable.
This experience really motivated me to want to help others more
Of all projects I have planned, this is one of the most difficult project to plan
I am thankful and grateful to BWS for this opportunity to create an event for the youth, by the youth with a meaningful purpose
There is a reason why the world is not made up of one person but many of different backgrounds.
What is the journey of a Blossom World Youth Development Programme?
We believe every youth has a potential in them towards a gracious generation that contributes positively to family, society and country. Hence, we aim to build a generation of youths who do not focus solely on personal achievements such as academic success, but possess strength of character with the rights values as well.
Youth may embark their Blossom Youth Development Programme to explore their potential creatively, enhance responsibility, participate in multidisciplinary activities that promote character development, and strength their competencies in community service, leadership, and various sets of skill.
