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 licensed 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.
Word of CEO
In the past few years, the COVID-19 pandemic has been constantly changing, we have learned to be more flexible and adaptable, and to cherish what we have. As life and the society return to normal with vitality, AYP looks forward to working together with young people to pursue their dreams with courage, and cultivating an environment with hope and potentials that can be ‘More than Imagination’.
Nurturing the holistic development of the young people has always been our AYP’s primary goal. Young people from different background encounter various challenges as they grow up, and AYP will continue to play an important role as a bridge to cultivate young people’s creativity and diverse talents….
CEO of The Hong Kong Award for Young People
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.
