In line with Barclays' community investment commitment to help 5 million young people aged 10 to 35 achieve their potential by investing in programmes that enhance their enterprise, employability and financial skills, the internationally renowned British bank has pledged a sum of $447,500 over a 3-year period in support of 'Youth Rangers' - a new youth leadership development programme which operates at Care Corner – Teck Ghee Youth Centre ('CC-TGYC').

Youth Rangers targets youths between 13 and 17 years of age who are at risk of falling into juvenile delinquency, and develops them to become caring leaders with positive social and life skills, who may then contribute back to the local and overseas communities in positive ways.

A pilot run of Youth Rangers was first initiated by another Care Corner centre: 'CROSSROAD Youth Centre' in 2008. Over the years, CROSSROAD has seen youths successfully graduating from its 'ranks', several of whom have returned as volunteer EXCO members to help lead and mentor younger members.

This is the first time CC-TGYC is running the programme which officially commenced on 1 April 2014.

In addition to sponsoring the 3-year run of Youth Rangers at CC-TGYC, Barclays' employees have been actively giving their time and expertise at Care Corner youth centres by providing workshops to raise the employability and financial literacy skills among these future pillars of society.
