A Word from the CEO

AYP is a non-formal education and learning framework with mission to reach young people with diverse backgrounds and equip themselves to succeed in life. During the pandemic, new trends like online learning platform and I-networking are becoming popular. Young people quickly master and adapt new ways of studying and communications and strive to complete their Award journey.

I would like to thank various government departments, funders, donors, participants, partners, supporting organizations, volunteer, friends and colleagues who have been supportive all along. I wish you all good health and a prosperous year. 2021 marks our 60th anniversary, I am glad to have you celebrating with us and I look forward to creating more milestones together.

With the completion of AYP Jockey Club Duke of Edinburgh Training Camp in Tai Po, we raise the industry bar by bringing innovation, creativity, social inclusion and environmental protection all in one destination. Young people and camp goers will be excited with their stay and lasting memories of experiences will be created.

Lastly, we are walking up to a new reality. Together with our young people, we continue to open ourselves to a new range of possibilities and potential, equip ourselves for challenges ahead and transform them to opportunities for growth.
