About World Vision

World Vision is a Christian humanitarian and development organisation dedicated to addressing the needs of vulnerable children and families worldwide, regardless of their ethnicity, religion, gender, or nationality. Through a combination of relief, development, and advocacy programmes being implemented in about 100 countries around the world, World Vision works in partnership with disadvantaged communities to tackle the root causes of poverty and injustice, thereby enabling them to reach their full potential. We also work in conjunction with the affiliated programmes and specialised agencies of the United Nations, including the World Food Programme, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, and UNICEF, on issues that have an impact on the safety, health, and developmental potential of children. Our programmes address a range of essential needs that have a critical bearing on the livelihoods of poor families and the well-being of children. These needs include:

Registration 

 

Who can join YFCC? 

 If you’re aged 17-35, and able to attend the programme in full, do sign up here and join us for YFCC! 

 

May I ask for a refund of the registration fee if I cannot attend the conference due to unforeseen circumstances? 

All registration fees are non-refundable, but you do have the option of identifying another person who can attend the conference in your place. 

 

YFCC & YEP-GO 

 

What is YEP-GO? 

Youth Expedition Programme Goes Online (or YEP-GO) is a virtual initiative by Youth Corps Singapore that allows youth in Singapore to continue volunteering with overseas communities during the pandemic through online Service-Learning projects without the need for travel. More information on YEP-GO can be found here

How is YFCC connected to YEP-GO? 

After being introduced to the challenges that have emerged in different countries due to the pandemic at YFCC, eligible participants will have a chance to work in teams to develop and implement a 20-hour programme of online educational sessions (a requirement of the YEP-GO initiative) for adolescents and youth whom World Vision serves in Cambodia, the Philippines, or Vietnam.  

 

If I register for YFCC, does that mean that I am automatically enrolled on YEP-GO and must complete an online project? 

No. YEP-GO projects with World Vision will only be undertaken by YFCC participants in Singapore who have been recruited by partner schools to form project teams before the conference. 

 

Can I still attend YFCC even if I haven't been recruited to be part of a YEP-GO project team?  

Yes! You can attend YFCC as a stand-alone educational event to be schooled up on international needs that have arisen from the pandemic. Equipped with this knowledge, you could even seek out your own service opportunities independently after the conference. 

 

Who are the community participants whom YEP-GO teams will be working with?  

The adolescents and youth whom YEP-GO teams will be working with live in Cambodia, the Philippines, and Vietnam. They have been identified by World Vision's field workers as individuals who come from vulnerable backgrounds. All of them are part of World Vision's community development programmes, which focus on alleviating poverty and improving specific aspects of their well-being in a sustainable manner, including (and not limited to) educational outcomes, economic livelihoods, and ensuring that they live safe from abuse. More information on how World Vision’s community development programmes are carried out can be found here.   

Each YEP-GO team will be matched to a specific group of adolescents or youth for the full duration of the project and will be able to decide, jointly with World Vision's field workers and the community participants themselves, on the schedule of their sessions so as to complete their 20-hour project by the end of May 2022. 

 

What guidance will my YEP-GO team receive while we are developing and implementing our project?  

During the period of project development, your team will be scheduled for up to two check-in meetings with World Vision's field workers. You will need to come prepared to present your proposed plans for your project so that you can receive targeted feedback for refining them during these meetings.  

A representative from World Vision Singapore will facilitate the check-in meetings, and will be contactable during the project implementation phase to provide feedback on the online educational sessions that you will be running and to help with coordinating logistical arrangements for your projects (such as the stationery or equipment that community participants will need). 

 

Can I contact World Vision for more information? 

Sure! You are welcome to contact us at youth@worldvision.org.sg or +65 69220133.
