About Us

What we do
BrightMinds - NYC
At NYC, we believe in a world where young people are respected and heard, and have the ability to influence and make a difference to the world. Together with our partners, we develop future-ready youth who are committed to Singapore by instilling in them a heart for service, resilience and an enterprising spirit.

Why we do
BrightMinds - NYC
We began as the national co-ordinating body for youth affairs in Singapore and the focal point of international youth affairs. We advocate for youth interests, connecting the youth sector, while enabling holistic youth development – imbuing the youth with the values and skills to thrive in a globalised world while keeping a strong Singapore heartbeat.

How we do
BrightMinds - NYC
We house two key institutions including Outward Bound Singapore (OBS) and Youth Corps Singapore to drive youth development and broaden outreach to young Singaporeans and youth sector organisations.

OBS is Singapore's leading outdoor training program. With our mission to strengthen youth resilience and ruggedness while also developing youth leaders and mentors, we use our facilities in Pulau Ubin to allow our participants to challenge themselves, discover strengths, and become empowered to rise above themselves to care for others. Most importantly, however, our program allows youth to realise that they have the power to make things happen.

Our team of full-time instructors who seek to inspire & educate youths to seek more, do more, step out of their comfort zone, serve others & exercise compassion during the course.
