Problem Statement

The more risk factors that youths are exposed to, the greater likelihood that they will experience negative outcomes, including delinquency.

How can we better enagage youths-at-risk to have access to opportunities and not engage in delinquent activities?

Project Description

Project Add One More is a mentoring program for youth at risk that gives them a chance to gain new skills and work experience in a safe and supportive environment with volunteers.

Both the volunteer and beneficiary would go to learn in industries and professions that they are both interested in, such as barista skills in a cafe, baking in a bakery, haircutting in a barbershop. Their corporate partners would be local small businesses with a community-centric mindset.

They are young teens under immense stress in our society without any guidance to go about handling their situation. Which in turn, makes them susceptible to act based on emotion which often times leads them down the wrong path. A dysfunctional home, hanging with bad company and smoking are major driving factors at such a young age brings negativity in their life.

Emotional Intelligence, learning to control oneself emotion is fairly important in the context of a working environment especially in a team setting as being able to control one’s feeling in situation that does not favours the opinion of the others. I feel that this skill is important in Singapore which the country has high percentage of people including youth that’s faces work life stress which may affect their actions.

In response to "How do you define youth-at-risk?"

In my take, youth-at-risk refers to people who are still in the stage where they are exposed to many different things in life which may dictate which direction or path they will head towards in the future. In more specific terms, they are youngsters who are the most susceptible to positive and negative influences from people around them since they are in the midst of growing up and are more prone to following what they deem as norm. All in all, there are many factors which can affect their choices in life (eg: family, financially, mentally, relationships, interests).

It would be helpful if there was a reward system for the youths, e.g. popular vouchers/bubble tea vouchers when they master a certain level of the skill that they are interested in. This may motivate them to continue on in the programme and make their day! Another rationale for this is that some of these youths at risk may be from families that are struggling financially, and these activities may take up time that they could use to find work and/or study. The rewards may give them a little more incentive to train up themselves in these skills.

Attack the root cause of the problem. Oftentimes, the youths have no opportunity to mix with good company and/or get access to quality education due to certain socio-economic factors. I would think about how to stop a self-perpetuating cycle - ie: youths at risk give birth to children, where they grow up to be youths at risk - and address the problem at is source, such that they will be able to access education and opportunities very much like the majority of youths in Singapore.

Advertise such programs heavily using social media; instead of just saying it as a guidance and mentoring program, such a project could be pushed as a \'platform to meet like-minded individuals\' or \'a place to meet new people and have fun together\' before bringing in all the guidance and mentoring. This is so people would not be defensive when they see words such as \'guidance\' or \'mentoring\' as many people would feel that there is nothing wrong with them and they are not in need for a mentor, even though they may be in that situation.

I imagine working with or helping the youths-at-risk require a holistic approach because of the complexity of issue and the specificity of each case. I feel that having a program to teach youths employable skillset sounds great but not everyone of them will appreciate or be interested in picking up a skill. What if they are bogged down by the responsibility to care for another sibling, or they have a learning disability which is undiagnosed which cause them to be unable to concentrate in school. They possibilities are pretty vast and i think that while this program can help some, it is not one for every youth. There probably needs to be a good selection/filtering guide to sieve potential youths who can benefit from it, and partnerships with other agencies/programs providers to refer the youths who are unsuitable and may have to deal with other more pressing needs than gaining an employable skillset.

Helping youths to be exposed and gain understanding of the different industries and professions is very useful in helping youths to find and create their purpose. - I feel that it will be useful to hold this mentoring programmes for students maybe towards the end of secondary school for them to find their interest and passion in the different industries and professions. Instead of focusing on youths who are already at risk, it will be good to come in at the point where they are most likely to become delinquents. I feel that if they found their purpose/interests, they might spend more time pursing and discovering their interests as it will give them a sense of satisfaction they might be craving for. - I believe the team has planned activities from different industries and professions, but I feel that it is important to include all possible jobs for the youths to explore and experience. Maybe give the youths an option to dive deep into a profession if they already have a strong interest in, or allow them to scratch the surface of all the interests that have to help them discover themselves. Good luck! :)

More than just a skill, these youths-at-risk needs proper environment and guidance. learning these skills and giving them a platform to shine, such that they might earn something they are proud of by themselves, that is one part. The other part is that they have an environment that extends beyond working time. Suggestions to have small groups where youths in the program can hang out, share with each other their experiences, success and failures. with mentors facilitating. also can consider have alumni program for the youths who graduated from the program to come back as seniors. so that they can keep being around the supportive environment and that can reduce the chance and time they mix with wrong group of people. a key question would be how do you intend to identify and reach out to these youths in the first place?

How to attract these youths at risk to come on board with this mentoring programme as many youths today are more interested in just living their own life and not caring about everything else. I have had experience with many 16 year olds and it\'s difficult to talk to them about building themselves up for the future because they aren\'t even sure if they would be alive a year down the road. So I would suggest being able to partner up with different industry from creative, to F&B to sports, to even video games so as to offer a wide variety of interest to attract these youths.

One of the advantages of mentoring is that it is topic-agnostic. However, this universality can be overpowering, giving the impression that mentors must have extensive knowledge in a variety of fields. Making mentorship a hot issue can assist to address these problems. For aspiring mentors, defining a topic clarifies the scope of the relationship and makes finding mentors easier. Because a mentor for one topic might also be a mentee for another, this technique has inherent flexibility.

To enhance clarity, perhaps the sources of volunteers could be stated under Project Description. Would they be from tertiary institutions, young working adults or older adults looking to mentor? How would different pools of volunteers make this project a success, and how would matching be done? One other aspect to think about would be the tracking and following up of the volunteers and beneficiaries. Who would be in charge of the learning journey (project team or volunteers), and how would the process be tracked (logbook, journal, video recording, posting onto a group platform)?

Increase the audience range to not just Youth Offenders but even to Adult Offenders. Similarly, engage previous supportive offenders to be mentors. Sometimes, getting non-offenders or people with no prior experience may not be able to drive crucial learning points to the participants. Additionally, participants learn easier if their teachers and mentors can truly understand their situations. Doing such would allow Youth At Risk to understand the importance of what\'s necessary (or even what\'s right) and steer them away from any \"risky\" activities. Additionally, they have a platform to speak to people with experience so that they do not feel left out. Of course, this would be a two-way street and also ensure that Adults-At-Risk (or Adult Offenders) can learn, better empower themselves and give back to the society.

If you want to target youth-at-risk, I think it is a good idea to match them with volunteers to teach them actual employable skills. However, what is more important than teaching them actual skills would be trying to understand WHY/HOW they ended up in their position in the first place. Please engage proper professionals to speak to them, really try to understand their family situation, what are the beliefs they hold & why they want to engage in \'delinquent activities\' rather than employment. If not, they will just learn the skill & then go back to what they were doing before. Understand the motivation behind their action, don\'t just teach them skills. I don\'t believe youth-at-risk lack ability. They lack intentionality & proper motivation; they don\'t see why they should work. Maybe they have reasons like lack of a proper family environment to go back to or some other factors. All the best

I feel that there should be a greater emphasis on learning about transferable skills. Transferable skills are universally essential. When these youths have grown up and get an inkling of what they might want to become, despite not having all the necessary skills to land the job, they can still rely on the transferable skills that they have learned and use them to highlight their potential as an asset to the company.

Invite fellow youths that were previously delinquents to be a mentor, so as to allow them to better relate to youths-at-risk struggles and interests.

On building partnerships with companies, it may not be easy given that the company probably has to allocate resources to allow for such a program to take place. there is no clear benefit for the company so it might be difficult to get them to sign up. maybe the team can explore having the program whereby the students learn a skill together with the youth-at-risk instead of making it a work attachment. this simplifies the project as you have one less stakeholder category to manage partnerships. On getting youth-at-risk involved, it might be good to collaborate with social service agencies that have existing relationships with such youths. this is because without some foundational level of trust or incentive/disincentive, getting them to sign up might also be difficult. lastly, for the volunteers, the benefit could be learning a new skill while also volunteering and doing good! I would think there would be volunteers that are keen! :)

Sometimes it can be overwhelming for youths if too much is done so I suggest slowly easing them into it

Volunteers and beneficiary should undergo personality tests and matched with each other: https://www.thecolourworks.com/profiles/insights-discovery/ Reason: Mentors may not be compatible with mentee, or worse, clashing personalities. The right person for the right individual can make all the difference between successful mentorship or a failure.

Create an Act game of work scenario and make the youths to think.What would they do when this happens? This may get them to learn and not fall into delinquency.

1) Need a substantial number of trained and experienced case worker to match the volunteer and beneficiary 2) Volunteer and beneficiary have to set SMART goals and agree on the goals in their mentoring partnership 3) Connect with other youth / community services that can help in ways to contribute to the mentoring program 4) Donation drives to support mentorship efforts 5) Early intervention will help break the cycle of destructive behaviour of the youth-at-risk 6) Decide on at which stage should the beneficiary \"graduate\" from this mentorship program and what other support can be given to them after their \"graduation\" from this program 7) Beyond learning an employable life skill, I would like to suggest to include supplementary sessions that inculcate soft skills such as emotion management, communication skills, how to relate to one another and in present times, the greater importance on mental wellness 8) A channel (chat box/email) to be opened to public so youths who are facing challenges and wishes to join the programme or a referral case from the public can contact the relevant in-charge for more details

How about looking beyond usual sector and invest these youths in innovative cleaning or technology related roles for youth at risk who can contribute their talent?

Perhaps have some conversational starters to help volunteers and beneficiary interact and bond.

I think one thing to really think about is how to entice and get these youths at risk on board because usually these youths would be disinterested and unengaged so it will be a challenge to bring them on board this mentoring programme. Also, perhaps you guys could think about what small businesses are you guys specifically looking at (which industries, functions) and to form partnerships with them, so when these youths learn new skills at these businesses, they can in turn work part time for them and put these skills into good use, forming good relations between both parties and a win-win for all.

I think even Shy Youth can also be at risk although they do not seems to rebel outwardly. The program is good as it encourages Youth at risk to gain more useful skills that fills up their void rather than rebelling and also provides them a way to hone their interest which can help them in their career. It also helps SME find interns or fulfil the shortage of manpower. The Youth can also be encourage to continue their interest as they are paired with volunteer in the program and also gain new influence and friendship.

Mabye instead of getting professionals to teach them new skills you could get people who once experienced the same thinking as them. Only then they will think that they might not nessesarly have a bad outcome but but might have a chance at being an engenier or a CEO, just as long as they buck up now and learn new skills before is too late. I think that one of the best motivation is hope, and once you put some hope in them I am sure that they will strive to learn new skills to not let your hope go to waste

IMO, youth-at-risk does not necessarily mean engaging in delinquent activities. Well, they may be more susceptible, but different individuals would react differently to their environment. I guess what\'s important is to not assume of anything of the youth-at-risk.

The team can consider thinking from the corporate partners\' perspective to make this more sustainable. What is in it for them? Why should they take on such a mentoring programme? How would they benefit from this partnership?

maybe provide some mental aid too? and some bonding so that they have a network (trusted people) to seek out. so more than just making them a more employable person, they could feel more safe by themselves.

Maybe allow the option to sign up for a longer programme that allows the individual to rotate across businesses in different industries to see what they are like and to figure out what the individual would want to do in the future. At the end of the programme, perhaps they can be awarded with a certificate for completing the industry rotation and at least have basic employable skills across multiple industries.
