YDC Youth Ambassadors Programme 2019
In celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the Establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR), the government and the then Commission on Youth strengthened the International Youth Exchange Programme to the “Youth Ambassadors in Celebration of the Establishment of the HKSAR Programme” (20A YA Programme) in 2017, with a view to engaging young people and encouraging their active participation in various celebration events and activities. Opportunities were provided for Hong Kong youth to broaden their horizons and international perspectives through overseas exchanges. Having regard to the successful experience and the positive feedback from both the youth and the relevant stakeholders, the Home Affairs Bureau (HAB) and the Youth Development Commission (YDC) will launch the regularized “YDC Youth Ambassadors Programme” in 2019, and recruit 100 Youth Ambassadors each year, with an aim to identify and nurture youth with strong commitment and passion for serving the Hong Kong community. All Youth Ambassadors shall receive dedicated training, including core-skills training, and will have visits / exchanges outside Hong Kong. Arrangements will be made for them to participate in large-scale or international events and activities organised by government bureaux and departments, such as international conferences, exhibitions and celebration events etc. The Youth Ambassadors will also be tasked to organise social service activities for the community. Youth Ambassadors with outstanding performance will be selected to receive advanced training from acclaimed tertiary institutes outside Hong Kong. Further, the “Youth Ambassadors Alumni Association” will be set up under the Programme to provide a platform for the Youth Ambassadors of previous years to keep in close contact, share their experience as “mentors” with the newly-recruited Youth Ambassadors and to continue their active participation in large-scale government events/activities as well as social services activities organised by the Youth Ambassadors.
