E-services and the u21 website
u21 homepage  

This is the first in a series of issues of Youth Matters to focus on HKFYG’s core services.

Websites are vital today, when there are approximately 2 million users of the internet under the age of 30 in Hong Kong. The Federation’s website, is a crucial link between us and our 230,000 enrolled youth members. It has both static and dynamic web pages with informative, educative and entertaining content that parallels our services on the ground. Examples are all year round online counselling, a copyright-free photo bank for liberal studies, fun problem-solving at Math Arena, cookery classes for the vacations and a blog directory and Google widget for research.

We partner educational institutions such as IVE and the International Studies Service Centre to promote study and training options. acts as a portal for jobseekers looking for work on the mainland, with info on the social and labour infrastructure. Media such as the Hong Kong Economic Times give us access to idiomatic English resources for English Corner which is used by approximately 10,000 students in about 90 schools. Special offers and discounts from companies such as PCCW and DBS come up regularly for members, while jobnet and hotsearch advertise employment opportunities. Both Google and yahoo collaborate with us. Would you like to join in too?

Contact, tel 2831 9183 to chat about it.
