National Young Leader Award Recognising young leaders who are involved, engaged, and show conviction in the things they do.
National Young Leader Award

The only nation-wide award reaching out to young leaders between 15 and 19 years old, the National Young Leader Award (NYLA) was launched in 2013 to recognise youths who are involved, engaged, and show conviction in the things they do, regardless of their academic achievements.

We recognise and nurture young leaders who excel at one (or more) of these leadership traits:
Involvement

Bringing positive change to the community through active participation

Engagement

Mobilising others to catalyse positive impact

Conviction

Acting with purpose on issues and passion areas that they care strongly about

Self-Leadership

Being a positive influence by upholding values through their actions

Team Leadership

Rallying people together to overcome a challenge

WHAT YOU GET AS PART OF NYLA

Beyond acknowledging their leadership capabilities, Halogen Foundation also journeys closely with the applicants to further develop them in their character, mindset, and skill set. The finalists also get the opportunity to be mentored on their impact projects.

By highlighting the stories of these young leaders, we hope it inspires a generation of young people to also rise up and make that positive contribution in their communities.
