In 1983, Youth Guidance Outreach Services (YGOS) was established in response to an increasing awareness of the presence of youths-at-risk in our housing estates. As a Christian based social work agency and a ministry arm of Singapore Youth for Christ, YGOS seeks to reach out and help these young people function more constructively in society. Our team of dedicated social and youth workers, supported by enthusiastic volunteers draw on a personal approach during our process of helping with these youths and the family. Since then the work has been extended upstream to include preventive programmes in schools.
