Yayasan Sukarelawan Siswa (YSS)/Student Volunteers Foundation


Launched in 2012, Yayasan Sukarelawan Siswa (YSS)/Student Volunteers Foundation is dedicated to growing a culture of volunteering among Malaysia’s 1.3 million tertiary students. YSS exists to motivate, educate and guide Malaysian tertiary students’ aspirations and capacity to act as champions of world peace, instilling a spirit of camaraderie among their ranks via community engagement as volunteers in Malaysia and internationally. It pursues six core clusters in meeting the Sustainable Development Goals (Education, Medical and Health, Community Development/Improvement, Agribio and Environment, Crisis and Disaster Management, and Information Technology and Social Entrepreneurship), aiming to:

  • create leadership opportunities among student volunteers
  • organise high impact volunteer programs
  • fortify the ecosystem of student volunteerism
  • enhance strategic linkages across the volunteering and governmental sectors
  • reinforce the concept and practice of specialised volunteer training

YSS positions youth volunteering as a key tool in creating compassionate, caring future leaders among Malaysia’s tertiary graduates. YSS firmly believes that students must be “ethically and morally upright, spiritually grounded, compassionate and caring; appreciates sustainable development and a healthy lifestyle” to become role models as future leaders. It has now executed 34 high impact volunteer missions across several ASEAN countries and also locally in Sabah and Sarawak. YSS promotes the concept of inclusiveness and immersion where volunteers eat, live and breathe with the local community.

YSS is an initiative of the Malaysian Ministry of Eduction (Higher Education).
