Set up 'Youth Works' - an after-school mentor-driven initiative to empower the youth to become agents of change in their own communities - A two-way process where the community works with the youth and the youth give back to the community.
 
     
  1. Digital Inclusion: Large numbers of youth in underserved communities are excluded from the opportunities due to limited or no access to technology. Through technology-centred programs the void is to be bridged.  
     
 
2. Safe Social Space: A space where diverse people come together and engage in activities that is non-clichéd and non-formal with a strong mentoring program.
 
     
  3. Learning Process: Self-Directed Learning mode; mentor facilitated; peer-to-peer learning; project based; technology-enabled programs.
