A total of 29 respondents participated in this study. The interviews and FGDs aim to add greater understanding of employment challenges faced by Malay/Muslim youth in Singapore.

The study is initiated on the premise that there is a need for a more nuanced understanding of the ways youths view their own circumstances, particularly as a Malay/Muslim youth in Singapore. The objective is to gather insights into youth perceptions and experiences. By understanding the pathways of influence through which attitudes and values are proliferated, the study hopes to adduce the necessary information for stakeholders to design new programmes and adapt proven interventions for youth development.

The report begins with a background of the research and the methodology employed. Findings and data are subsequently presented. The report ends with some preliminary analysis and conclusions drawn from the data and offers recommendations for the way forward.
