WHO WE ARE
Advisory is a fully youth-led nonprofit dedicated to empowering young Singaporeans to make informed career and further education choices. By breaking down the barriers to access that young people face in finding out about their fields of interest, Advisory hopes to create a level playing field and support youth to pursue their passions. Advisory is funded by the National Youth Fund, supported by major organisations like the National Youth Council and Young NTUC, and is an affiliate of Youth Corps Singapore. Advisory’s work has been featured by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and Senior Parliamentary Secretary Baey Yam Keng, as well as prominent media outlets like Channel NewsAsia, The Straits Times, Youth.SG, Berita, Rice Media, The Smart Local, Lianhe Zaobao and Lianhe Wanbao.
A world where youth are empowered to make informed decisions about their futures.
To be the bridge that allows students to have a personal and in-depth understanding of industries and jobs available, by connecting them with the working world.
TYPES OF STORIES
Interviews with entry- to mid-level working professionals, published in Q&A form. Comprises a short introduction to the interviewee and interview transcript. Each interviewee will select the 5 most important qualities needed for the job (as per the 42 Harvard Competencies). These will serve as the bread and butter of Advisory’s content.
Articles communicating industry concepts and jargon to students in easily-accessible writing — explaining terms (i.e. bitcoin, blockchain), discussions on the future of various industries, and discussions on the world economy. Writers include both Correspondents (through interviews with professionals/research) and professionals themselves.
Narrative, in-depth accounts of interactions with mid- to upper-level working professionals. Discussions about values, work-life balance, advice for youths, and other concepts to personalize interviewees and provide youth with role models.
