Social Ventures

Our Social Ventures Portfolio aims to move beyond traditional charitable giving, to projects where involvement by Sgp Cantabs would generate unique value. Avenues for Cantab involvement include needs identification, innovative solution proposals, finding appropriate partners/sponsors, as well as direct participation.

Pilot Project: Cambridge-Halogen Youth Leadership Programme

  • The Cambridge Chapter (Singapore), together with Halogen Foundation Singapore, is aiming to establish a two-year leadership training programme for secondary school students. The Youth Leadership Programme emphasises a critical but often neglected aspect of personal development and provides a channel through which Cambridge alumni can meaningfully contribute back to the local community.
  • Halogen Foundation is the only not-for-profit charity in Singapore that specialises in youth leadership development. Over the past 5 years, Halogen has enriched over 42,000 students through their programmes and events. Halogen has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Center for Creative Leadership, which allows Halogen to adapt CCL’s executive leadership materials to suit the youth audience. DPM Teo Chee Hean is the Patron of the foundation. More information about the Halogen Foundation may be found at:
