A panel of judges representing Singapore Committee for UN Women, industry experts and multinational organisations will decide LIVE on the day which team will take out the top prize. One of the teams will also take home the People's Choice Award, and this is where you come in! On the day, you can vote for your favourite young team of social entrepreneurs and help them kickstart their journey!

About Project Aspire

Project Aspire is a local youth social entrepreneurship initiative that encourages teenagers aged 14-18 to learn about social issues that affect women and girls in Singapore, and empowers them through regular workshops and training to make a difference in their community! The program culminates in a showcase day, where the youth teams present their ideas for change to a panel of judges, parents, peers, teachers, youth organisations and the general public. Teams stand the chance of securing funding for their ideas as well as winning access to courses, mentorship and other support kindly sponsored by generous partners.

Launched in 2015 and now in its second year, the initiative CHAMPIONS youth as problem-solvers for today and into the future. We CHALLENGE them to take risks for social good and CREATE an environment with no boundaries to foster innovative thinking and creativity. The COMMUNITY is the backbone of the initiative of which the program and students draw support, strength, inspiration and motivation from. The initiative could not happen without the support of many stakeholders that are committed promoting to creating safe, creative, and challenging environments to foster youth social entrepreneurship in Singapore.

Project Aspire is proudly organised and CHAMPIONED by Singapore Committee for UN Women. We champion youth to be empowered, educated and enabled to take on the challenges of the current and future generations. The initiative is POWERED by the National Youth Council Singapore and we welcome the ongoing support of CHALLENGE partner, muru-D. We aim to CREATE an environment with no boundaries to foster ongoing creativity and thank *SCAPE, Make the Change and Speech Academy Asia for their role in making this happen. The COMMUNITY is why and how the program and the students stay motivated. With thanks to Dignity Kitchen, Bettr Barista, The Nail Social, IDEO Singapore, the Change Leader Academy, Books Actually & Band of Doodlers for providing that support.
