What are DIODE Camps?
The DIODE Camps are leadership camps catered for youths aged 8 to 19. Each of these camps target a specific age group and contains unique key learning points to help youths overcome challenges that are relevant to their stage of life. Through the DIODE, we hope to help youths discover their leadership potential, encourage them to build healthy relationships with other youths and empower them to make a difference in the community.
How will DIODE benefit me?
Camp participants will discover their leadership potential through engaging sessions and simulations, exciting games and a hands-on approach to making a difference in the community around them.
Leaderonomics believes in continuous, life-long training. This is why participants who have gone through our camps will be given an opportunity to enroll in a specialFacilitator Selection Programme. Any DIODE Camp Alumni who passes the selection programme, will be provided with further training and mentoring programmes by our DIODE team to become facilitators in the future, FREE of charge!
We also believe in giving equal opportunities for youths to grow as leaders. With that in mind, we provide scholarships for underprivilegedyouths to be part of our leadership camps every year. These youths would make up at least 30% of the campers of each of our DIODE Camps, all of whom are equally as deserving of success as the other.

At DIODE, our goal is to grow and build 1 youth leader at a time, so that they become leaders that will change the world! I remember 2 campers who were brothers. They were not talking to each other initially, but after experiencing DIODE, they became brothers that supported each other. Their mother even drove all the way to our office because the sons kept pestering her to bring them to visit the facilitators who inspired them. The mother’s first question when we met was “What did you all do to these boys?” I love the fact that our camp changes not just the youth but their parents, classmates and the community around them in a positive way – Ang Hui Ming, co-founder and COO Leaderonomics
