MENDAKI Club, or MClub, is a community of Malay/Muslim young professionals and students who are engaged in affairs concerning the community, Singapore and the world. We engage in strategic youth development initiatives and participate actively in discussions on current developments in the local and global arena. We also strive to build bridges within the Malay/Muslim community, and between our community and other communities, to promote mutual understanding and cooperation.

As a registered society affiliated to the Malay/Muslim Self-Help Group Yayasan MENDAKI, the activities and programmes of MClub are largely organised and run by volunteers from a wide range of professions and backgrounds.

MClub is organizing our 16th annual Graduates' Tea event to celebrate the achievements of Malay/Muslim graduates from the polytechnics, madrasahs, local and overseas universities. This event is organized for graduates to gain insights and knowledge from leading professionals in various industries and a starting point to network with them.

This year MClub's Graduates' Tea, the chosen theme is "Be The Centre Of Influence". The theme defines our goal to inspire fresh graduates to be positively influential no matter what their future journey may be. It would broadly focus on the importance of 

a) realising one's potential to influence and its power

b) utilising the power of social networking online and offline

c) being at a centre of influence
