SSW brings us into various primary schools, secondary schools and ITEs. One of the programmes is the Enhanced Step-up, an MSF initiative to empower students with life skills to help them achieve their potential in areas beyond the academic into the personal, family, community and peer areas.

Time-Out programme address the needs of youths who are identified to be at risk of dropping out of school. It aims to work with school teachers and counsellors in keeping them motivated and meaningfully engaged.

ELMP seeks to prevent youth from falling into negative influences which may arise from aimless loitering and idleness after schools hours. They are providing an open door for youth who need support and a supportive community that can help them to succeed and achieve positive life outcomes at home, at school and with their peers.
STSPMF is a community project initiated by The Straits Times to provide pocket money to children from low-income families to help them through school.
ESU is a support programme for students at risk of dropping out of school, as well as out-of-school youth.
YARE is an early intervention framework to support youth-at-risk (YAR) using evidence-based or evidence-informed services and/or programmes.

Our YARE ABC programme aims to combine the platform of adventure learning with the therapeutic effects of group work in contributing to positive youth development and resilience.

SWP is a programme coordinated by the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) and it aims to address the issue of street corner gangs and its negative effects on youths.
ESWP is for youth offenders who play a minors role in gang-related offences. These youth
offenders could be let off with a stern warning if they complete the programme successfully, in lieu of court prosecution.
The Guidance Programme (GP) is a 6 months (extendable to 12 months) pre-court diversionary programme where youth offenders who have committed minor offences, or have a low level of involvement in an offence, attend the programme in-lieu of prosecution.
GP PAST and GP HSA are pre-court diversionary programmes where youth offenders who have committed minor sexual or smoking related offences respectively. Like the Guidance Programme, they also run for a 6 (extendable to 12) month period.
An intervention programme for youth smokers, this programme aims to use positive peer pressure and experiential learning to guide youths toward personal autonomy to quit smoking.
TIP is a specialised group programme for youth who have committed repeated theft offences. TIP is based on cognitive-Behavioural, social learning theories of offending behaviour and the Good Lives Model (GLM).
Triage is program done in partnership with the Singapore Police Force. Trained staff are deployed as Triage Officers to interview youths caught for offences. The Triage Officers then help to recommend intervention and further action or redirection into more specific programmes.
The Youth Enhanced Supervision (YES) Scheme is a 6-month programme for first-time drug offenders aged 21 and below.

YES seeks to enhance the current drug supervision regime with casework and counselling, in addition to urine supervision. This programme requires family participation, as family support is integral to rehabilitation. The Scheme adopts a motivational approach and incorporates relapse prevention techniques.

The Mentoring Alliance programme aims to provide youths with a positive adult mentor that can journey with the youth through ups and downs of life, as well as teach and learn from one another. This programme uses mentoring to equip and enhance several characteristics reflected in the Positive Youth Development Index (PYDI) scale.
