Service Spotlight

Youth Exchange

Living in a world with ever-faster communications makes it more essential than ever to become cosmopolitan in outlook and the Youth Exchange Unit facilitates this process. Young people need to go overseas to broaden their minds and what a marvellous way it is to make friends. The Hong Kong Young Ambassador Scheme, featured in this issue, is one of the international and regional programmes run by the unit. Others are the Hong Kong Odyssey of the Mind Programme and the Hong Kong Student Science Project Competition. The Cathay Pacific International Wilderness Experience is an exchange programme that we have been involved in for 10 years and there are regular international forums in Korea and Mainland China to which HKFYG sends youth delegations.
For more information on exchange programmes and other regional events, contact Eva at the Youth Exchange Team tel 2561 6149



Hong Kong Young Ambassadors:
a sense of belonging

Young Ambassador Scheme Award Ceremony Feeling that you belong means feeling a sense of responsibility, feeling an awareness of your place in society and the satisfaction that comes from helping others get to know it better. When young Hong Kong people have a clear sense of identity they feel proud of their vibrant, dynamic city, of its culture and customs, its heritage and history. They want to share that feeling with others, Hong Kong people and visitors alike, boosting the city's image in the process.

The Federation runs the Hong Kong Young Ambassador Scheme with the Tourism Commission because it builds that very important sense of belonging which means our bright young people want to stay here, to see their city continue to prosper and flourish. It also gives them a chance to learn more about Hong Kong and contribute to the tourist industry. The scheme is a collaborator at festivals, with organizations such as the museums and the temples, the Wetland Park, the Peak, the Airport Authority and the Star Ferry. We are constantly seeking to broaden the partner base.

If your company would like to sponsor the scheme or become a partner station, please contact Bonnie in the Partnership & Resource Development Office, tel. 2123 9598 email
