The ASEAN Youth Fellowship (AYF) is a leadership development programme that aims to grow and connect emerging young leaders with a focus on public, private, people sector collaboration. It is organised by the Singapore International Foundation (SIF) in partnership with
the National Youth Council (NYC).

The programme was inaugurated in 2018 to commemorate Singapore’s Chairmanship of ASEAN. After a hiatus in 2020, the third run of the Fellowship took place from 27 to 31 October 2021.
