The Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups (HKFYG) was founded in 1960 and is now the city’s largest youth service organisation. For the last 56 years, it has been committed to serving the youth of Hong Kong through the provision of a variety of services, activities and programmes, which have an annual attendance of over five million. We encourage youth to reach their fullest potential and with community support, we now have over 70 service units. We also have 12 core services, which include the Youth S.P.O.Ts, M21 Multimedia Services, Employment Services, Youth at Risk Services, Counselling Services, Parenting Services, Leadership Training, Volunteer Services, Education Services, Creativity Education and Youth Exchange, Leisure, Cultural and Sports Services, and Research and Publications. We encourage young people to grow into responsible and dutiful citizens and we now have over 180,000 registered volunteers and 400,000 registered members. We believe that our motto HKFYG • Here for You reaffirms our commitment and dedication to the young people of Hong Kong.
The HKFYG Leadership Institute has, up to now, provided comprehensive leadership training for nearly 150,000 student leaders, numbers that keep on increasing. Numerous programmes are organised, including Hong Kong 200, a core project, which focuses on training and service to the community. The Hong Kong Youth Service Award recognises and honours outstanding young people who exemplify the true spirit of service to the community. The Salzburg Global Seminar was introduced to provide a global perspective through learning from international leaders. Building on its solid foundation of leadership training, The HKFYG Leadership Institute is now preparing to be set up on the premises of the revitalised Former Fanling Magistracy. It will consist of four Schools that emphasise on instilling Leadership Skills, developing Communication Abilities, ensuring Global Understanding and encouraging Public Engagement.
