Powered by Youth: Day 1


Powered by Youth is an annual 2-day forum which allows secondary students from different schools to gather together and learn from inspiring speakers, facilitators and each other.


On Day 1, students will work in breakout groups under two themes: Power (Technology, Creative Arts & Design, Voice and Movement) focusing on personal strengths and Passion (Mental Wellbeing, Poverty & Education, Environment and Reduce Inequality) targeting social issues that the students care about. The forum allows students to understand the root causes of social issues and to collaborate with each other in project ideation, design and innovation to create their own community projects.
