Organisation: The Hong Kong Award for young People

Introduction: The Hong Kong Award for Young People (AYP), formerly known as The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, established in 1961, is a member of The International Award Association. The AYP, with its unique international principles, cultivates youngsters with perseverance and the spirit of self-challenge.

Year of Establishment: 1961

Service: Our mission is to provide opportunity for young people to challenge themselves through leisure activities and voluntary service which they can discover their hidden abilities and gain a special sense of satisfaction and achievement.

AYP is a programme about challenge, enterprise, effort and achievement. It addresses the development of the whole human being by providing a unique rewarding agenda that fills the gap left by formal education. It gives young people a chance to constructively use their leisure time, to set and achieve personal goals and to learn about themselves and their community through experiential learning either in a group or in person.
