About Us

We are a group of students embarking on a self-initiated community project under the Citibank Youth for Causes banner. In the course of 6 months, we intend to help raise awareness and funds for the Yellow Ribbon Fund. These funds will go to help ex-offenders and their families.

Aside from planning a dance showcase for students between the ages of 16-20, entitled DANZA!, our group has volunteered to help the Yellow Ribbon Fund at various other events. The following are a non-exclusive list of events that we will be volunteering/have volunteered at: Ministry of Development Family Day (4th July), Yellow Ribbon Street Sales (28th Aug) and the Yellow Ribbon Prison Run (5th Sep).

We hope to spread the message that these ex-offenders deserve a second chance just as much as anyone. We hope that in the future everyone in society will accept these ex-offenders and help unlock the second prison.
