Aimed at all those who are interested in young people, their problems and concerns, hopes and aspirations, Invest in Youth, share stories, information and news. We welcome you your suggestions and comments, but ask you also to take the time and see how you might be able to join us building up partnerships. Please show your support by joining our mailing list to receive Invest in Youth every week.

Equipping Youth in a Digital World
Technology has, quite literally, become a part of everyday life, whether for education, communication, business, trade, leisure or entertainment. Not only have we become dependent on various digital tools to make our lives easier, we now realize that they are an absolute necessity in order to remain competitive and productive.

Young people especially need to be tech savvy. Therefore we call upon all our partners to help ensure that the youth of Hong Kong do not get left behind in this digital world. Please show your support and encouragement by either providing us with hard ware, like computers, or help sponsor training programmes.

To find out other ways to help, please contact Ms. Agnes Ng or Ms. Connie Lee of the Partnership and Resource Development Office at 2123 9598.
