What We Do
Catch Them Young Ltd (CTY) was founded in Dec 2015 to expand the social reach of the KidsExcel programme. Singaporean children under the MOE financial assistance scheme are given programme subsidies to participate in KidsExcel.
During the year, pupils attend weekly sports enrichment and academic remediation classes. Academic classes are helmed by dedicated & experienced teachers, supported by an extensive and MOE-aligned curriculum. Sports and enrichment classes are led by experienced trainers, and are used as a tool to engage and motivate our pupils
Since its inception, Catch Them Young has supported over 700 pupils, including 260 beneficiaries currently enrolled in the KidsExcel programme.
CTY was founded to tackle the following learning issues of the current enrichment paradigm:
Tuition which places an inordinate financial burden on households with income below the national average
A lack of motivation and self-esteem issues in disengaged children from low-income families
The mission of CTY is to make available educational and experiential opportunities to students from low income households through:
Sourcing a range of educational programmes or services
Providing funds for these students to take part in the enrichment activities
Ensuring the delivery of high quality programmes
CTY believes that building a strong educational foundation at a young age will help address the issues of children from financially disadvantaged backgrounds falling behind their more affluent peers.
