About BuddhistYouth Network (BYN)
BYN is a non-profit organisation (UEN 201503876C) had its legal formation in 2015. It had its humble beginnings as Camp LIONS organised by a group of youth leaders who were leaders of youth groups from Buddhist Fellowship,Singapore Buddhist Mission Youth, Kong Meng San Phor Kark See Monastery and NUS Buddhist Society. Since then, annual leadership and life skills workshops were organised with more than 3,000 training sessions catered to 20 active youth groups and more than 500 youth leaders.
BYN is registered as a company limited by guarantee with the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority of Singapore. We receive support from Buddhists and organisations including Buddhist Fellowship, Palelai Buddhist Temple, Firefly Mission, Vimalakirti Buddhist Centre and Rangjung Yeshe Oddiyana.
In addition to training Buddhist youth leaders, BYN organises annual events to develop spiritual friendships, innovate Dharma practice and foster collaboration in the Buddhist community. All events are planned by professionals and youth leaders, in consultation with Buddhist youths.
