The YMCA Conversation Series was launched on 26th January 2013 by Mr Stephen Loh, President of YMCA of Singapore and Minister Lawrence Wong, Acting Minister for the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth. The event was entitled, “More Than Ourselves: A Generation That Cares,” and the theme revolved around cultivating sustainable volunteerism in youths today. Group discussions were lively and youth participants were able to examine their generation and share their thoughts about volunteerism in today’s fast-paced world. The open conversation with Minister Wong, facilitated by Mr Steven Chia, Channel NewsAsia reporter and board member of YMCA of Singapore, was vibrant, with an interactive exchange of ideas among participants. The event ended with a special sharing by the ISP team that went to Chiangmai in December 2012. Participants were encouraged to pen down a commitment based on what they learnt after the event, serving as a sign of putting their words into action and being advocates of positive social change.
