“To Be A Leading Social Work Organisation In Enabling Children and Youth To Maximise Their Potential.”
SHINE Children and Youth Services (formerly known as Students Care Service) is a registered charity and a member of the National Council of Social Service. We have been empowering children, youth, and their families in Singapore since 1976 and remain committed to enabling them to maximise their potential. SHINE serves around 5,000 students, aged 5-21 years old, each year. The work we do helps to build young lives, enhances their resilience, and SHINEs the light of hope for their future.
