The year 2014 marked the first decade of YSA’s establishment. During the last 10 years, YSA has initiated or has been directly involved in more than 120 activities or programmes locally and overseas. This amounts to approximately one event every month. This is indeed a remarkable feat. What is perhaps more remarkable was the fact that, when YSA was formed, it did not have a penny in its coffers and the founding members contributed funds from their own pockets to get it going. It is also equally impressive that these activities and programmes have been spearheaded by YSA’s Executive Committees which comprise entirely of volunteers. Like the founding members, successive Executive Committee members have strongly believed in YSA’s founding principles. Each and every individual on the Executive Committee has worked tirelessly and passionately set out to translate YSA’s values into tangible programmes.

To mark its first decade, YSA launched its 10th anniversary Publication, “10 — First Decade” on 2 September 2015. The book was launched by Mr K Shanmugam, Singapore’s Minister for Foreign Affairs and Law, during the Sixth YSA Ministerial Dialogue. The launch ceremony witnessed Mr Shanmugam unveiling the book design and signing the poster to mark a simple but symbolic launch of the publication.

The 136-page publication captures YSA’s key achievements and milestones since its inception. This pictorial presentation represents YSA’s humble beginnings and its journey to becoming an important and integral part of the Sikh community and the youth sector in Singapore. The journey in the first decade has been nothing short of exciting and exhilarating.

If you would like to receive a complimentary copy of the publication, please write to Ms Simar Kaur at We will contact you on the collection of the publication.
