INFLUENCE is a nationwide youth volunteering programme that aims to mobilize young people and inspire them to become change-makers . The programme also strives to build their capacities to lead initiatives of social and environmental development. INFLUENCE follows a non-traditional approach that encourages youth to become aware, analyze, reflect and act upon issues concerning local and global development. Young people under the Influence program become ‘targets’ as well as ‘mediums’ of change.


This experience has made me more expressive and there is a sense of achievement in me for being able to do something for the society.

Enlightenment. My misconceptions were erased. I got to live a different life and learnt to derive happiness out of the tiniest things in life.
