Yayasan Sukarelawan Siswa

Yayasan Sukarelawan Siswa (YSS) was launched in 2012 as an entity owned by the Government of Malaysia through the Ministry of Higher Education (MoHE). YSS committed to growing a culture of volunteering among Malaysia’s 1.3 million students of higher learning institutions and in the ASEAN region.


YSS positions youth volunteering as a key tool in developing volunteer leaders which is aligned with the Malaysia Education Blueprint (Higher Education) 2021 – 2025 that emphasises the balance between both knowledge and skills as well as ethics and morality.


With the concept of inclusiveness and immersion where volunteers eat, live and breathe with the local community, 1,481 Student Volunteers were trained since 2012 through an enabling environment and continuous window of opportunity for them to grow.


YSS has executed 48 high impact volunteer missions in Sabah and Sarawak of Malaysia and across several ASEAN countries. besides missions, YSS also partnered with organisations to carry out community engagements projects targeting beneficiaries from the lowest household income groups in Malaysia (B40).
