Not many of you may be aware but the Young PAP has its very own football team!
Known as the Young Patriots Football Club or "YP FC" in short, the team had humble beginnings in late 2009, starting with just 20 players. The team trains together regularly and has also played against a number of local teams as well as participated in local tournaments.
Most notably, just barely three years after its formation, the Young Patriots Football Club emerged champions of the first PAP Futsal Tournament, beating 16 other teams in 2012.
The team was formed by then Young PAP Chairman, Mr Teo Ser Luck, to provide an avenue for YP members to connect and network through football, a popular mass sport. It also gives a fantastic platform for activists to meet and interact with other Singaporeans.
A 4-day trip to the slums of Cambodia gave 23 youths from West Coast GRC a renewed sense of purpose.
Serving Singapore will remain the focus of the YP, says new YP chair.
12 youths embarked on a mission to pro-actively reach out to residents, and to take action to improve their lives.
Young PAP shares one of its key initiatives taking place in the eastern region of Singapore.
The recent Yio Chu Kang Branch Young PAP retreat sought to strengthen bonds between YP members and branch activists.
He takes over the role from Mr Teo Ser Luck. Both Mr Chan and Mr Teo have also been appointed as Organising Secretaries of the CEC.
He described the middle class as "one of the drivers that represent the main psyche of Singaporean society".
Young PAP holds open dialogue on wages and condition of the blue-collar community in Singapore.
