Testimonials

“I am inspired by how the ASEAN Business Youth Association (ABYA) as a youth-led organisation has grown from strength to strength since their early days and pitch at the Youth Action Challenge (Season 1) organised by the National Youth Council (NYC). Since then, NYC has partnered ABYA to co-develop programmes that aim to broaden our youth’s understanding and appreciation of the ASEAN region, such as the ‘Asia-ready Webinar Series’ and the ‘ABYA LEAPS x Talent@SWITCH Youth Challenge 2021’. As a group of young leaders themselves, ABYA’s commitment to equip their peers with the knowledge and skills needed to seek out opportunities and build connections within the region is heartening. I look forward to continuing our partnership with ABYA.”

Mr David Chua, Chief Executive Officer of the National Youth Council Singapore

It has been an amazing year supporting ABYA initiative in 2021, from Youths & The Future of Work in SEA session held at *SCAPE HubQuarters to co-curating an online panel discussion on "How to advance education in ASEAN" and masterclasses for LEAPS 2021 programmes. Another commendation to the team would be their execution of Demo Day event at *SCAPE Ground Theatre for ABYA LEAPS X TALENT @ SWITCH Youth Challenge. We do hope through programmes like LEAPS, ABYA team will continue inspiring and providing youths with opportunities to be mentored by industry experts, guiding them while they explore innovative ideas & solutions. *SCAPE is a proud partner of ABYA and certainly look forward to more collaboration in the future.

Shawn Wong, Deputy Executive Director of *SCAPE Co., Ltd.
