The National Youth Council will have a new CEO by the end of this month, says the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth (MCCY). It named Mr David Chua, a former Colonel in the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) as the stat board’s new CEO.
Mr Chua was also appointed chairman of Orchard Road’s youth hangout *Scape, a company limited by guarantee under MCCY. He will assume the roles from 28th July.
The National Youth Council, which underwent restructuring in January, now houses two other institutions – Outward Bound Singapore and Youth Corps Singapore.
It remains to be seen how Mr Chua will handle the transition from barking orders to his subordinates to handling a more complex and people-centric role in youth outreach.
