With the aspiration of making a difference, the Raja Muda of Selangor Foundation was established based on the belief of DYMM Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah that there are many youths that are not academically-inclined but have a hidden goldmine of talent and skill. If given a chance and proper guidance, they will be able to harness this latent talent and skill and finally realize their dreams and ambitions to attain success.
The Raja Muda of Selangor Foundation was founded when the Sultan was still holding the Raja Muda position in the year 2000. The foundation aims to develop projects involving youths in apprenticeship programmes under the guidance of a mentor. The specified Apprenticeship programmes include the following courses: Sewing, Hair Styling, Food Preparation, Automotive, Electrical Wiring, and the Maintenance and Repair of Air Conditioners and Computers.
