NP Youth Academy

The NP Youth Academy

Every student matters. Every opportunity counts.

At Ngee Ann Poly, every student matters. That’s why we’re committed to giving you every opportunity to deliver your best. We believe each and every one of you has the potential to excel – whether you’re looking to pursue a passion, prepare for your career or university, or be an all-rounder. 
For you, we’ve created the NP Youth Academy, packed with programmes and activities that will take you on an exciting journey to discover more about yourself, broaden your horizons and gain real-world insights. The programmes offered are anchored in the areas of leadership, character building and personal development.

At the end of the day, every one of you will be empowered to create your own success story – one that may not be measured by conventional standards. Your success will be about that something xtra in you; the passion, resilience and compassion that distinguish you as an NP graduate!

Past INSPIRE Speakers Series

INSPIRE Speaker: Mr Tom Ziglar (4 November 2016)
Tom Ziglar shared based on Zig Ziglar’s best-selling book "See You at the Top", which has been translated into more than 15 languages and sold more than 1 million hardcover copies worldwide. He spoke about the “Stairway to the Top” and how we can take a step closer every day to where we want to be. He shared many personal stories of challenges and how he overcame them to achieve success.

INSPIRE Speaker: Mr Kurt Kuehne (22 July 2016)
"How to Leap, Fall, or Parachute from School to the Real World"
Kurt Kuehne shared a social scientist's perspective on translating your education into personally and socially meaningful work. Mixing funny personal stories about career life, social engagement, and global travel (plus some practical, easy-to-implement strategies), Kurt demystified the intimidating jump from school to the professional 'real world.'

Reflection from one of the students, Esther Tan (BA, Year 2), after the talk: 
Life has no procedure, and no shortcuts. It spins you around and finally places you in where you are meant to be. Step up and face the world! For all you know, the little things you did, could turn out to be great stuff!
