The year 2022 marks the decade of the establishment of Student Volunteers Foundation/ Yayasan Sukarelawan Siswa (YSS) in producing volunteer icons and global volunteer leaders on the world stage as well as to develop Malaysia as a hub student volunteerism. This year the theme for YSS 10 Year Celebration is “Celebrating a decade of Volunteering”.
Student Volunteers Foundation (YSS) would like to express our appreciation to YAB Dato’ Sri Ismail Sabri Bin Yaakob, the Prime Minister of Malaysia for launching the YSS 10 Year Logo during the “Karnival KPT Keluarga Malaysia” at MRSM Batu Pahat, Johor on 18 February 2022.
In essence, the official logo of YSS 10th Year Anniversary is the placement of the raising hand sign made up of ribbon motions, the number 10, and YSS official logo.
Symbolises the global volunteering sign, a raising hand portrays deep sense of altruism as volunteers and the lives they touch synergise through the act of volunteering and creating life-long impact.
Made up of ribbon motions in red and gold, the logo portrays hope, peace, and the fiery passion of our Student Volunteers as they “win people’s hearts, mind and soul beyond borders”.
The positioning of YSS logo within the number 10 signifies the establishment of YSS since 2012 pivoting the movement of Student Volunteers for 10 years.
Join us as we celebrate a decade of establishment, a decade of paving changes, and a decade of making a difference in the lives of our student volunteers and the community we reached.
To many more decades of winning people’s hearts, mind and soul beyond borders.
