Funding Scheme for Youth Life Planning Activities
Life planning is an ongoing and life-long process. The Government has since 2014 adopted a series of measures to help young people realise their life planning as early as possible, and assist them in keeping abreast of the development trend of the local market as well as the industry prospects in Hong Kong, so as to facilitate their informed choices in relation to academic pursuits and career aspirations. The Funding Scheme for Youth Life Planning Activities (the Funding Scheme) was set up to support non-governmental organisations (NGOs), in collaboration with secondary schools, in organising various life planning projects, such as thematic talks, workshops, workplace visits, job attachments, etc. These projects not only cater to the needs of students, but also cover training courses and activities for teachers and parents to enhance their awareness of life planning and multiple pathways. From 2019-20 onwards, we will allocate additional resources for the enhancement of the Funding Scheme with a view to promoting greater synergy between NGOs and schools in terms of quality and quantity.
Pairing under Clearing Round
To enable more schools to benefit from the Funding Scheme and to prevent schools from excluding from the Funding Scheme due to unsuccessful applications by NGOs, the YDC now launches the pairing exercise under clearing round so that the schools concerned are provided with an opportunity to choose another successful NGO (see the list of NGOs/projects funded above) for collaboration in the next round. NGOs may also take the initiative to contact the schools concerned and accept the schools as their service targets. This will help expand the coverage of the Funding Scheme and ensure that all secondary schools in the territory willing to collaborate with NGOs have the opportunity to participate in the Funding Scheme.
Furthermore, the schools which have not participated in the Main Round of the Funding Scheme are welcome to pair up with the successful NGOs for collaboration arrangements during the pairing exercise under clearing round.
The successful NGOs who are prepared to accept more schools under the Pairing under Clearing Round should complete the Application Form for the Pairing under Clearing Round and submit together with the original copy of letter(s) of intent of the additional collaborating school(s) to the Secretariat of Youth Development Commission on or before 5 p.m., 18 July 2019.
