ITU Telecom World Youth Forum:
Fifty Federation Volunteers at work

V-Day Volunteers Lives are changed through volunteering, both in the community and at large scale events in the city. Fifty members of the HKFYG volunteer network (VNET) are serving youth delegates at this week's ITU Telecom World 2006 at Asia World-Expo. They are trained how to plan and organize, make best use of interpersonal and communication skills and ensure that overseas participants find their feet and feel at home. What better preparation for life's challenges could there be.

Volunteering is a fundamental act of citizenship and a generous offer of time and energy. The Federation encourages as many young people as possible to get involved. Last weekend, we celebrated International Volunteer Day by giving recognition to our volunteers. The Youth Volunteer Network (VNET), has accumulated 3,400,000 hours of service since it began in 1998. This year for example, we have 185 schools in HKFYG's Heart to Heart Project with 65 companies working voluntarily at their side. They all send the message that giving is fulfilling and rewarding. We want to reinforce that message.
