Youth Matters
We wish you health and happiness in celebration of the Mid-Autumn Festival!
First vital step
All of us need to be emotionally balanced, ready to take on life's everyday challenges. This might be more so for young people, who are constantly faced with pressures and expectations, both in and out of the classroom. The Federation has services that aim to help ease these difficulties and encourage youth to think more positively.

Project STEP is one example. Preventive education and early intervention by frontline social workers shift the focus from negativity to wellbeing and stability, reinforcing coping mechanisms and offering counselling, guidance and therapy.

Take that first vital step towards helping Hong Kong youth by offering your support for our counselling projects.

Call Ms Brenda Yip     tel 3755 7102     Let's see what we can do together.
