The Hong Kong Award for Young People (AYP), formerly known as The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, was established in Hong Kong in 1961 and is a license member of The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award Foundation. We have unique international principles, which cultivate young people with perseverance and the spirit of self-challenge.

60th Anniversary

Marking the 60th Anniversary in Hong Kong, the Award will continue to provide diversified services to young people to equip themselves and embrace challenges ahead.

Word of CEO

AYP is a non-formal education and learning framework with mission to reach young people with diverse backgrounds and equip themselves as individuals to succeed in life. During the pandemic, new trends like online learning platform and I-networking are standing out.

Ambition

We provide opportunities for young people to challenge themselves and explore about themselves through engaging in leisure activities and voluntary services. We are fascinated by witnessing young people well-equipped in the society; discovering their hidden abilities and achieving both physically achievement and mental satisfaction.

Our Commitment and Involvement

AYP bridges the gap formal education could not fill for young people. With the assistance of Operating Authorities and User Units, we are able to reach diverse groups of young people. We offer an alternative for young people to spend their leisure time, set and achieve personal goals and have a better understanding on themselves and the community through experiential learning.

Apart from Operating Authorities and User Units, volunteers play a crucial role to AYP in supporting our youth work. Instructors and volunteers with different background, knowledge and expertise provide guidance and accompany young people in their precious Award journeys.
