Talent Area 1: Community Youth Leadership (Girls and Boys)
The Community Youth Leadership (CYL) programme envisions every Woodgrover as a future-ready learner and thoughtful leader.

CYL offers two main platforms to develop and hone students’ leadership traits – the Student Leadership Development (SLD) Programme and the Values-in-Action (VIA) Programme. DSA students will automatically be enrolled into the school’s Student Leadership Development Programme, where they will be provided with a wide variety of opportunities and platforms to carry out student-initiated projects to lead the student body and hone their leadership skills through school events, as well as contribute to the community through our Values-in-Action (VIA) programme.
