Learning for Life Programme (LLP)

Lifelong Learning Programme: Community Youth Leadership

Goal: Every student, a Community Youth Leader

The Learning for Life Programme in Community Youth Leadership (CYL) supports the school’s vision of nurturing our students to be Champions for the Community. We adopt the Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership by James M. Kouzes and Barry Z Posner in developing our student leaders in Junyuan. All student leaders will be trained in the Student Leadership Challenge (TSLC) and will have the opportunity to exhibit the following behaviours:

·        Model the Way
·        Inspire a Shared Vision
·        Challenge the Process
·        Enable Others to Act
·        Encourage the Heart

The Leadership Development Roadmap


We believe leadership is not positional, and that every student has the potential within them to be a leader. Through various structured leadership training, learning programmes and opportunities, we hope to nurture our student leaders to be concerned citizens and active contributors.

Leadership Training

All students in Junyuan go through a structured developmental leadership training.

Cohort trainings on the Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership are conducted every year. 

Secondary One (Model the Way, Encourage the Heart)
Secondary Two (Challenge the Process, Enable Others to Act)
Secondary Three (Inspire a Shared Vision)

Trainings are also conducted for student leaders of various leadership groups, where specific leadership skills are identified to be taught to them. The leadership development programme for them is segmented and progressive. Some of these trainings are:

Class Leaders Training (for class chairpersons)
• Peer Support Leaders Training
Sec 3 CCA Leaders Training 
Student Leaders Training (for Sec 1 Orientation and Sec 2 Camp helpers)
Student Council Camp
Sec 1 Student Leader Internship

Student Council
The Student Council aims to Lead, Serve and Inspire students to be Champions for our Community. To achieve that, the Student Council organises a variety of projects and events within and outside of school. Trainings, workshops and learning journeys are some of the programs students will engage in to hone their leadership skills.


Service Learning & Innovation (SLI) Exposure for Secondary One

The SLI Exposure consists of a workshop and experience volunteering at an external organisation. The workshop aims to equip students with the knowledge of service learning and the use of Innovation Protocol to understand their roles in helping the community and generating ideas for community projects. Through the workshop, students work in groups to generate innovative solutions to solve problems for the community. As part of the exposure, our Secondary 1 cohort had a hands-on experience in using the design thinking process to solve the problem of food insecurity in Singapore. In giving back to the community, they partnered with Food Bank Singapore and enabled every Secondary One class to organise a food donation drive in Junyuan Secondary.


Values in Action Project for Secondary Two

Students will be engaged as a class to plan and execute a Values in Action (VIA) project with external organisations. The project aims to develop students into socially responsible citizens meaningfully to the community through the learning and application of values, knowledge and skills acquired in Secondary 1 SLI Exposure. As part of their learning, students also conduct a Community Cause Awareness Campaign to share about their project and learning from the experiences.

Co-Organising of School Events for Secondary Three

Student leaders will work together with various teachers, schoolmates and external organisations to execute a selected school wide event. Through this platform, student leaders take ownership of the event and grow from the experience of running large scale events. Some of these events include Graduation Day, Teachers Day, Hari Raya Celebrations, Racial Harmony, International Friendship Day and many more. 


Champs Initiated Projects

Student leaders are welcome to initiate projects that aim to improve the school environment, improve the community, or kick start new initiatives for a good cause. Student leaders use this platform to practice leadership by proposing changes and leading a project. Some successful projects include Ofobrella (JY umbrella rental system), Class Calendar Whiteboards and Anti-Bacteria and Hygiene Awareness Campaign.


Community Outreach

As part of community engagement, students visit neighbourhood block of residents during festive events and national day celebration. They give out mandarin oranges and hand-made postcards that share about the traditional Chinese New Year food with the residents during Chinese New Year. For National Day Celebration, the students distribute flower pots and share gardening tips with them.


Student Recognition

Student Leaders’ Investiture was organised to affirm the efforts of our student leaders. Be it class leaders, CCA leaders, Student Council or Peer Support leaders, all of them were recognised in their respective classes during CCE Leaders’ Investiture this year.
