ABOUT us

 

BILBY is a youth charity that strives to provide youths in Singapore the opportunities to define themselves, and the platforms to develop themselves holistically in a positive environment.

 

“We believe that every youth deserves the opportunities and platforms to define and develop themselves.”

 

Through our programmes and services, we aim to provide equal opportunities and the required platforms for the youths to learn and explore, to grow and excel - equipping them with the skills and knowledge to develop and form a greater sense of self and character, to which they in turn may contribute to the development of the community.


BILBY works with youths who have high needs, but lacking in resources to overcome their challenges. We strive to provide them with the guidance and support they need to define and develop themselves.

what we do

 

BILBY conducts Youth Engagement & Motivation Programmes, Youth Leadership Programmes and Youth Support & Guidance Programme for at-risk and/or high needs youths.

 

Our team of Youth Workers and Counsellors conduct meaningful activities to support both school-based and community-based programmes - such as leadership, life skills and social emotional workshops. We also provide support and guidance to the youths we engage with, to encourage their development in a positive manner.

 

Where required, information and referrals and counselling are also provided to ensure that the youths we work with are well supported.

Story of BILBY

We’ve all been through rough patches and circumstances, feeling lost as we explore our way through our younger days: Wondering what we can do, what we are good at, and where we are heading towards..

 

In late 2019, a small team of Youth Workers, Counsellors, and social service professionals came together to start up BILBY COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT LTD.

 

BILBY was started with the idea to provide a platform for youths to express and be themselves - to explore their own passions and interests, to grow and learn with equal opportunities as their peers, all while having a positive figure available to support and guide them through their exploration journey, building resilience and achieving excellence.

BEHIND OUR NAME:

 

BILBY:

A small endangered marsupial that resides in the Australian desert. Small, but impactful - digging long tunnels and moving tonnes of dirt in the process. Just like the youths of our nations - small but just as significant and impactful.

 

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT:

Our view: that everyone stands to gain, when we all come together to contribute to the greater community. We strive to empower our youths, so that they can in turn contribute to the community, and support its development.

 

As the Bilby digs long tunnels in the desert ground, these tunnels allow for agriculture to flourish and other creatures to utilise.And just like the bilby, we hope our youths - through their development and growth - will allow for the greater community to thrive and grow, benefitting all in the process.
