RR-NYAA Scheme

In Singapore, the National Youth Achievement Award (NYAA) is an exciting personal challenge to young people aged between 14-25 years old. It is a nationally and internationally recognised award (through the The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award International Association). NYAA aims to develop and maximise the potential of young people through selfless community service, challenges of adventure, skills development and physical recreation so that they may be exceptional individuals who can contribute effectively to their communities, society and the nation.

As one of the operating authorities for NYAA, Royal Rangers Singapore can function as award coordinators for youths working towards their awards. Through the Royal Rangers program, youths can work towards achieving this award in parallel with the Royal Rangers awards.
