Trybe Limited

Unverified non-profit organisation

Established in 1995, Trybe is a social service agency that
empowers youth to overcome their adversities. Our vision is “Every Youth
a Success Story”. We believe that all youth are able to reach the fullest of
their potential to live successful lives. Thus, we are united by our mission
- to journey with youth who face adversities to lead purposeful lives,
inspiring them to impact others.

Trybe, an Institution of a Public Character (IPC), is a member of
the National Council of Social Service (NCSS). Our corporate values are
resilience, integrity, service, and excellence. With about 50 full-time staff,
Trybe provides youth with guidance and offer support for their families and
communities, creating a complete ecosystem of care from communitybased outreach and interventions, to individual in-care and aftercare

As part of our intervention work, Trybe engages youth showing
behavioural and mental health issues through programmes such as
Chrysalis and Project ANCHOR, guiding them towards a positive lifestyle.

Our rehabilitation programmes aim to help the youth lead crimefree and drug-free lives. In 2011, Trybe has been appointed by the Ministry of Social and Family Development to manage the Singapore Boys’ Hostel(SBHL). SBHL is a gazetted institution that serves youth in the age range
of 12 to 21. Trybe also managed the Community Rehabilitation Centre
(CRC) from 2014 until 2020. The CRC is a community-based drug
rehabilitation centre that serves male first-time drug abusers between the
ages of 16 to 21.

In an effort to provide after-care for youth probationers and exoffenders, Growing Resilient Youth in Transition (GRYT), was launched in
2015. Through GRYT, we support youth who have left the institutions to
integrate back into society.

Trybe also established the Overcoming Addictions Securing
Youths’ Successes (OASYS) programme which aims to create early
prevention and awareness among youth and offer treatment to youth who
face issues related to substance addiction.

To strengthen the reintegration of our clients who seek sustainable
career paths, Trybe launched Building Eco-systems (BES) programme.
BES provides career development opportunities for young people and
helps them gain skillsets, experience, and certifications that will qualify
them for long-term employment. Furthermore, Trybe has partnered with
Institute of Technical Education (ITE) and Ministry of Social and Family
Development (MSF) to launch a career mentoring programme for ITE

To date, we have reached out to more than 150,000 youths
through the different programmes and services for youths-at-risk, ex-offenders, and their families. In an ever-changing social landscape and the
emerging complex needs of youth, we are constantly seeking ways to
develop and improve the services we provide in order to make a difference
in the lives of our beneficiaries.
