Participants in our programmes are mainly from the Junior Colleges, Polytechnics, Secondary Schools and the Institute of Technical Education.

STEP organizes programmes in Singapore to enable its youth to engage with the less fortunate, learn specific areas on Science, Innovation, and the Environment, and to connect with and have a better understanding and appreciation of the cultures and aspirations of youths from other countries in Asia.

STEP’s Alumni are provided opportunities to attend a 3.5 days Leadership Program in Singapore.

Our on-going programmes for 2016 include the STEP-NUS Sunburst Brain Camp, STEP-NUS Sunburst Environment Programme, Sunburst Youth Camp and Sunburst EAGLES.
