The Asia Student Leadership Conference (ASLC) was initiated in 2012 and was held every year since. It aims to give students a platform to develop and strengthen their leadership skills and character, to receive training on becoming creators of change, as well as to enhance inter-cultural awareness.

The 2-day programme has attained much success over the years. Student leaders from 20 countries converge in Singapore to join hands with their counterparts to build awareness and learn about core values of service, leadership, education and volunteerism. When students help children in need, they learn first-hand how they can make an impact on the world and help heal humanity.

The conference recognises and celebrates diversity among the participants as we believe students play a vital role, not only in the future of Smile Asia, but also in the future of the world.

ASLC 2019

In its eighth instalment this year, ASLC 2019 is themed Ex Anima – From the Heart.

Anima comes from latin word animus which means “rational soul, life, or intelligence” from a root that means “to blow” or “to breathe.” In alignment with the theme, we hope to foster a culture of servitude in young future leaders to be pioneers in volunteerism from within their hearts and their soul. By doing so, they will “breathe” life not only onto the people they touch but also to those around them.

The conference will be graced by The Ambassador of the Republic of Philippines, His Excellency Joseph Del Mar Yap.
