Annual Neighbourhood Reunion Lunch
As we begin 2017, we send our very best wishes to all partners, donors and volunteers. We are grateful for all your support and trust in us over the past year as we serve the community. One of our programmes is the Annual Neighbourhood Reunion Lunch and it would be our pleasure if you could join us.

On Saturday 14 January, young volunteers will demonstrate their neighbourliness through this community lunch. This willingness to serve others illustrates responsibility and commitment, while also highlighting the joy of bringing people together. What more can we ask for as we start a New Year?

Come and join us!

New research report from Youth I.D.E.A.S. on flexible employment for today's youth
Flexible employment offers greater control over working hours and is an increasingly popular option for Hong Kong youth according to this survey by the Federation's Youth Research Centre. Over 51% of the 528 working youth polled took up flexi-work in the past year, most (44.8%) saying it was more lucrative than conventional jobs. Youth involved in the research recommended setting up a support and information platform plus recognition of accumulated work experience in the Education Bureau's Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) Mechanism in the Qualifications Framework.
