Yayasan Sukarelawan Siswa (YSS) / Student Volunteers Foundation is fully owned by the Government of Malaysia through the Ministry of National Unity, Malaysia.
YSS was launched in 2012 through the Ministry of Higher Education (MoHE), formally known as the Ministry of Education, and transferred its functions to the Ministry of National Unity on December 3, 2022. YSS is committed to promoting national integration and unity among Malaysians through volunteerism.
Since its establishment in 2012, YSS has successfully carried out 52 high-impact volunteer missions as our flagship programme in Sabah and Sarawak, as well as in Southeast Asian countries such as Indonesia, Lao PDR, and Vietnam. YSS also implements projects involving communities with our strategic partners to target beneficiaries among the low-income households (B40) and other marginalised communities.
As of now, 1631 Student Volunteers have been trained through an inclusive and immersive environment where they ‘eat, live, and breathe’ with the local community through experiential learning during the missions. As Alumni, they have access to ongoing opportunities to develop themselves as holistic individuals and inspire positive changes within their communities.
