The eMpowering Youths Across ASEAN is a partnership programme between Maybank Foundation and the ASEAN Foundation that aims to alleviate poverty and improve the social and economic well-being of ASEAN communities through youth volunteerism and social innovation. The programme targets youths between the ages of 19 to 35 years old from all 10 ASEAN Member States to be change-makers by providing a platform to learn, contribute, and advocate solutions to social and economic issues.

The programme is initiated with the realisation that the future of ASEAN is in the hands of youths, and that their energy and creativity can be channelled into challenging and meaningful activities to strengthen community bonds, encourage volunteerism and philanthropy, and generate innovative solutions to socio-economic challenges. The programme will give birth to promising community initiatives that can be incubated towards becoming social enterprises, which will have a lasting impact on the community.

The programme aims to make a sustained and positive impact on ASEAN youth empowerment and ASEAN community building efforts. The programme would promote a volunteerism, social innovation, and awareness of ASEAN, create an alternative career path for youth and raise awareness among ASEAN youth on social issues.

In its implementation, the programme will select a total of 10 qualified youths between the ages of 19 to 35 years old from each ASEAN Member States, and they will be deployed in the selected community areas in Cambodia, Indonesia and Malaysia to work with the Civil Society Organisation (CSOs) and Social Enterprises undertake a two-week community project under the programme themes of Community empowerment, arts and culture, environmental diversity, and education.

In Mid-January 2019, the programme would bring 100 youths in a one-week intensive capacity building and orientation workshop to develop their knowledge and skills and plan for their community project.


The 5 days Capacity Building and Orientation Workshop will be held at Bangkok, Thailand, on 22 to 26 January 2019
