Youth Expedition Project (YEP) is a Service-Learning programme by the National Youth Council (NYC) for youths aged 15 to 35. At SUSS, students are also encouraged to explore global concerns related to their local service-learning through a Youth Expedition Project (YEP). The YEP should be related to your local service-learning project, either by the social issue, community partner or skill-set required.  Students are encouraged to explore YEP collaboration with your local community partner, e.g. organising a combined YEP project together, possibly including local clients.
