 HKFYG Annual Plan for 2010-11
Strategic direction for HKFYG
The Federation's Annual Plan for 2010-11 has just been released. It re-emphasizes our five-year strategy for 2009-2014, placing the focus on five strategic directions:
Connectivity, Caring, Community Engagement, Professional Collaboration and Resources Development. Initiatives for greater connectivity in particular are a priority.

Performance Indicators for 2009-2010 show a 9% increase of Federation youthnet members who now number 302,610. Connectivity for such a large group is imperative in the digital age. Web 2.0 digital platforms, where existing and new members meet and exchange ideas and information with each other and with us, are at the core of HKFYG's connectivity. Our mission of Caring for Youth, Caring for the Community' remains. We strive to ensure that our method for achieving it evolves.
