Our TYS HQ Volunteers' Ally: Empowering with Purpose, Engagement, and Innovation


We are a department focused on strategically managing TYS’s people, culture, and work environment.  At our People & Culture department, we believe that happy volunteers are the heartbeat of a thriving organisation. Our approach centers on the idea that the future of work should prioritize human-centric approaches to purpose, structures, and leadership.


Together, let's make TYS the place to be, where ASEAN youth leaders feel proud to volunteer, and where productivity and creativity soar to new heights.

Our purpose is clear: we're here to power up our incredible volunteers o realize The Young SEAkers' vision of cultivating a vibrant community of adept ASEAN youth leaders, armed with cross-border competencies.
