Youth Matters
Summer creations, summer joy
Summer Youth Programme 2015
Every student looks forward to the holidays but parents are sometimes at a loss. How can those weeks of warm weather be used productively but with an element of fun? The Federation has plenty of amazing ideas to share.

With 4,500 summer programmes coming up there is something for everyone. From creative movie-making to cooking, from adventure water sports to volunteer food banking. From morning to evening, there is plenty to do. Summer joy is the theme; summer exercise, creation, dreams and green living are the goals.

The Last Crayon: a movie about children from M21
The Last Crayon
This story about five primary school children who take on a challenge and survive was directed by Jeremy Yung Wai-mi and Henry Poon. The film is a 2015 IndieFest Film Award Winner and its message is one of love for parents and children who are standing at a crossroads in life. They see the best and the worst of Hong Kong, the trouble facing the city, the prejudice and hatred of some of its people, and the ways in which this can distort children's thinking.
