The GRIT Project

The GRIT Project (TGP) is a Children and Youth Centre at Jurong West (Nanyang). It nurtures a caring generation to serve the community and addresses the needs of disadvantaged children and youths aged 5 to 18. Our staff and volunteers instil GRIT values in young people – Grace, Respect, Integrity, and Tenacity – all of which lead to grit! 

TGP provides a safe space for self-discovery and empowerment for young people so they can grow to be confident, competent, connected, caring, and of good character. 

The GRIT Project’s Programmes:

Structured Mentoring

Mentoring via Skills Transfer
Interest-based Programmes (Cheerleading, Dance) & Sports@TGP (Badminton, Futsal) engage children and youths from 11- to 14-years old. Amidst the vibes and exertion of these programmes, we weave in conversations about life and inculcate values.
