What we do

Transformation begins with new understanding

A change in understanding can be the defining factor of empowering an individual to move forward on a more positive path.

We set out to help young individuals redefine their perceived deficiencies, develop their strengths, realise their resilience and harness positive energy for enriched living.

It’s a 360-degree approach to ignite their intelligence, morality, self-control and spirituality for a complete transformation.

Harnessing Youthful Energy

YOSA’s Positive Youth Development (PYD) programme addresses challenges confronting our youth (e.g. teenage pregnancy, substance use and violence) through learning support, life skills and community development. We improve outcomes for youth by direct interventions that enrich their education participation, improving institutions like schools, families, and the community.
