Community Projects

Better Internet X Youths Call for Proposal

The Media Literacy Council launched the Better Internet x Youths Call for Proposals (CFP) on 13 April 2017 to support community initiatives that promote digital literacy. It attracted over 51 applications. In partnership with corporate partners, the Council hopes to empower youths to initiate projects that will reach out to and benefit their peers as well as the community at large.

Corporate partners Google, Garena, MyRepublic, Facebook and Mediacorp have come on-board to contribute their expertise and resources in areas such as co-funding, mentorship and training, incubation facilities, and the scaling of the CFP projects. These partners will tap on their platforms to increase the social impact of the CFP projects and bring Digital Literacy issues to their communities. The project beneficiaries are not limited to youths and may reach out to benefit any social segment in Singapore including students, working adults, parents, seniors and persons-with-disabilities.

We are showcasing the winning student-led community initiatives as part of the Better Internet Campaign 2018. Find out more about how you can support these projects!
