Team Program Malaysia,by Selangor Youth Community (SAY)
This event took place at Sunway Putra Hotel was graced by His Highness Raja Muda of Selangor, Tengku Amir Shah Ibni Sultan Sharafuddin Iris Shah Alhaj 

to celebrate Hairul Mafahir Abdullah
one of our young people from the programme who was selected as the 
Regional Winner for Asia of the 2022 Prince’s Trust Sustainability Award
an award that recognises outstanding young people on a Prince’s Trust programme across the world, 
Raja Muda of Selangor in partnership with Prince's Trust International for this awards


TEAM is an intense nine (9) week of personal and professional development journey to provide equal chances for deserving young people aged 18-30 with the goal of providing them a better future through three different types of opportunities: Employment, Education or Training

The story of Hairul's difficulty in seeking employment upon graduating and how he bounced back through Team Programme has opened the eyes of many on the importance of such programmes.
Despite losing his job during the pandemic like millions of other young people, Hairul was able to turn that setback into a new opportunity with the help of the Team Programme. Previously an engineering technician, Hairul was determined to find a new job and signed up for the programme, where he particularly enjoyed his two-week work experience placement with the Tropical Rainforest Conservation & Research Centre (TRCRC). Impressed by his performance, the centre offered him a job as an assistant researcher after he completed the programme.

Now, as a Biodiversity & Restoration Coordinator, Hairul spends his days working in the forest, 
caring for native saplings and monitoring wildlife. He has found a greater sense of purpose and connection in his work, which focuses on not just himself but also the surrounding community, 
nature, and the environment.

In his speech, Hairul mentioned that the values he gained from Team Programme has helped him in setting his career path and goals as well as to kickstart his career. 

"I believe that this is only the beginning for me towards achieving greater heights from this day onwards. I hope that Team Programme can prosper long into the future in order to provide opportunities for more youths moving forward."

Wasim Malik, Head of Delivery for Asia at Prince's Trust International, commented:

"It has been fantastic to hear from so many young people today who have benefitted from our programmes and are now making a difference in their communities. At Prince's Trust International, in collaboration with our valued partners like Selangor Youth Community, we empower young people to realise their dreams by providing transformative opportunities to develop skills and cultivate the confidence needed for sustainable careers. We are committed to providing invaluable opportunities for young people in Malaysia and I look forward to seeing many more young people supported in future"

His Highness Tengku Amir Shah Ibni Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah Alhaj, 
Raja Muda of Selangor said:

"I am very proud of Hairul and his achievement. His journey is an inspiration to many who are struggling out there. I am also enormously proud of all our young people from the programme. I hope we can help more young people out there and inspire their growth."
