National Youth Achievement Award (NYAA)

The National Youth Achievement Award (NYAA) is an exciting personal challenge to young people between the ages of 13 and 30. It is a balanced program of activities design to equip youths with personal qualities and skills to make a difference to themselves, their communities and their world.

We strongly encourage students to sign up for the Gold Award as it can be easily accomplished in the 3 years of student life in SP. Furthermore, you have the freedom to partake in activities you enjoy while fulfilling the criteria for the various segments.

Join us at SP NAC (NYAA Ambassadors Club). We are a community of students working together to help the student body in accomplishing the NYAA Gold Award. spnyaa@cca.sg
