Word of CEO

With explosive information nowadays, everyone absorbs lots of information every day and lives with a stressful pace of life. Stepping into “60+1” this year, let’s go back to nature and connect with it together!

AYP has all along been following new trends and launching more brand-new elements programmes so that young people from different backgrounds can be inspired to broaden their horizons, explore their potential and influence others during the process…

CEO of The Hong Kong Award for Young People

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.
