Homecoming Party
For the past 55 years, the Federation has been privileged to provide services for the young people of Hong Kong. This would not have been possible without the hard work of all the staff and the trust of our members.

Therefore, to remember what we've done and to say thank you, the Federation cordially invites all its members and colleagues, current and former, to get together on the 10 October at all our Youth SPOTs and at other service units including M21. The main kick off will be at The Jockey Club Shau Kei Wan Youth SPOT where a tea reception, youth performance and sharing session will take place with 5,000 participants.

If you cannot come, but still want to be a part of the celebrations, dig out your old photos, upload them to Facebook (香港青年協會 會員專區 / and tag your friends!
