MYouth Mobile App Challenge

The MYouth Mobile App Challenge (Singapore leg) is back! 

The MYouth Mobile App Challenge is a global project initiated by Association for Education MLADIINFO INTERNATIONAL and co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union. This project aims to develop youth social innovators and entrepreneurs in the field of new technologies. The top 3 teams from each country will also be mentored by international leaders in social innovation and app development.   

This year, we are looking for mobile applications made by youths that solve critical issues in society, creating social impact. All projects with this angle are welcome; be it eldercare service apps or youth-at-risk education apps.

The top 3 teams from Singapore will be sponsored a trip to Hong Kong, to participate in the Asian MYouth hack camp (3 – 8 June 2018). Get to know other changemakers around Asia and learn new skills. Transport, accommodation and food will be provided for in this trip.
