NYAA

OED NYAA Expedition

The National Youth Achievement Award programme (NYAA) is an all rounded national youth development programme and is designed in line with the Ministry of Education’s Levels of Attainment, focusing on effort and merit of the individual.

The National Youth Achievement Award is one of the premier youth development programmes in Singapore. Officially launched on 9 May 1992 by the President of the Republic of Singapore at the Istana, the NYAA programme aims to encourage young people between the ages of 13 and 30 years to develop personal qualities of self-reliance, perseverance and a sense of responsibility to themselves, to society and to the nation.

There are three levels in the NYAA programme:

  • Bronze Award for students who are 13 and under 30 years old and requires a minimum period of involvement of 6 months
  • Silver Award for students who are 15 and under 30 years old and requires a minimum period of involvement of 12 months
  • Gold Award for students who are 16 and under 30 years old and requires a minimum period of involvement of 18 months

The programme has three key components, which all participants are required to complete: 

  1. Service Learning, 
  2. Healthy Living (Physical and Mental Wellness), and
  3. Outdoor Appreciation (Environmental Stewardship). 

The Community Leadership Initiative (Creating an Impact, Delivering Change) is offered at Gold Level Only.

At UWCSEA, we currently offer the Silver and Gold award for High School. Grades 9s enrol directly into the Silver programme (they will finish the programme in Grade 10) and Gold programme is available to students who are committed to the programme through further activity in Grades 11, including an additional adventurous expedition (on top of the Grade 11 Project Week).

You can find more information regarding the award throughout the NYAA Council website and UWCSEA NYAA (Dover) microsite. UWCSEA is an Award operating authority of the National Youth Achievement Award Council.
