YSA's objectives are:
To deepen understanding of national issues among young Sikhs and to encourage them to contribute to the betterment of our society as thoughtful and responsible citizens.
Intellectual and Professional Development
To provide varying platforms for young Sikhs to strive for intellectual and professional development.
To strengthen inter-racial friendship and harmony by organising and actively participating in inter-community activities.
To foster community spirit among young Sikhs through community service at home and abroad.
National Identity and a Global Mindset
To build networks with local and international youth groups so as to foster national identity and a global mindset among young Sikhs.
As a totally independent Sikh organisation, YSA's programmes are initiated by young Singaporeans. These programmes are designed to allow young Singaporeans to fulfill their aspirations and to enable them to contribute to the betterment of their country. From dialogue sessions, seminars and professional development workshops to dhol competitions, cultural shows and sports activities, young Singaporeans choose their avenues of aspiration and contribution.
