People's Association Youth Movement
The People’s Association Youth Movement (PAYM) is Singapore’s largest youth organisation. Started in 1971, the PAYM caters to youths aged 12 to 35 years old, regardless of race, language or religion. We are a two-tiered organisation, comprising 101 Youth Clubs based in the Community Clubs and the Central Youth Council. The PAYM inculcates a spirit of volunteerism and promotes social integration in the community through events that offer common space for youths to interact and network. As a result, our youths build friendships, develop leadership skills, and realise their aspirations while playing their part for the community and nation.
PAYM is an organisation driven by youths for youths. It represents the multi-faceted interest of youths. Some of the youth-inspired events that PAYM has organised include “City Alive! 2009”, Singapore’s Biggest Dance Party; “YOUTHSpeak on Budget 2009”, a National-level Policy Forum; and “Heart to Heart We Serve the Community”, a series of community service activities. We have had overseas community service projects to Cambodia, Maldives and China, such as Project “INitiate”; and Hip Hop competition “Pop Culture” amongst other international exchanges.
Come and be a part of our energetic PAYM and have fun while making a contribution. Visit www.paym.org.sg.
