YSS 10th Years Anniversary
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 a 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.
