The Yellow Ribbon Project was launched in 2004 by the former President of the Republic of Singapore Mr S. R. Nathan. It seeks to engage the community in accepting ex-offenders and their families, giving them a second chance at life, and to inspire a ripple effect of concerted community action to support ex-offenders and their families.

You need to be at least 18 years old.
Volunteers play significant roles in rallying community support to build an inclusive society for the reintegration of ex-offenders.
You can make a difference today and contribute in the following ways:
Event support at Yellow Ribbon events e.g. Yellow Ribbon Prison Run

Joining CDAU has allowed me to equip myself with specialized knowledge and skills, as well as the opportunity to contribute back to my community.
I take pride in working with the regular officers, PNSFs, PNSmen and civilian staff to maintain law and order, and to keep Singapore safe. I also enjoy interacting with members of the public during our patrols and roadshows. I feel I am part of a larger family and this keeps inspiring me to do my best.
There's a place for everyone and as a volunteer, we can help reintegrate ex-offenders back into society by spreading messages of second chances.
