We Stand Together!

Since the beginning of 2020, Hong Kong and other parts of the world were affected by COVID-19 pandemic.

Nevertheless, AYP faced the pandemic with our young people with resiliency and remained steadfast in our commitment in cultivating and inspiring young people.

Stepping into 2021, let’s stay strong and strive for a better tomorrow!

In the early stage, AYP rapidly implemented precautionary measures at our centres and camp sites. Visitors and colleagues were required to wear surgical masks, have temperature check and sign health declaration form.

During the year, AYP conducted over 50 online programs for hundreds of award participants and leaders, including workshops, webinars, sharing sections and training courses, to let them continue to study and learn during the pandemic.

The 98th Silver Award Presentation was successfully held with special measures. We maintained social distancing throughout the presentation and recipients were divided into small groups before entering the main hall.

The 99th Silver Award Presentation was successfully held. We used partitions to separate the attendees into small groups to ensure safety of our guests and reduce social contact.
