Come join us at ItsRainingRaincoats' Youth Social Challenge 2024!

ItsRainingRaincoats (IRR), an award winning non-profit, works to improve the lives of male migrant workers in Singapore. We are thrilled to announce the launch of our Youth Social Challenge this year! The IRR Youth Social Challenge 2024 presents a unique opportunity for YOU to impact the lives of migrant workers, who serve as the often underappreciated pillars of our society. We warmly invite you to be a part of this transformative journey!

We are offering a platform for the youths in Singapore to help integrate migrant workers into our Singapore society. They will gain greater insight into the day-to-day challenges that migrant workers face and based on that, design creative and progressive solutions that will aid in IRR’s mission to better serve the migrant worker community.

Throughout YSC, participants will be guided by experienced mentors to generate actionable solutions to support the migrant worker community. 

Stand to win token gifts! Participants will pitch their solutions and prototypes to the National Youth Council and stand a chance to obtain further funding support and mentorship to scale-up your community project! Find out more about the Young ChangeMakers grant and the Open Mic session here.
