As Hong Kong's next generation of future leaders, our city’s teens are catalysts for positive social change.

Youth Empowered ‘22-23 puts 25 selected high-school students in the driver’s seat to learn about Hong Kong’s social needs, engage with nonprofit leaders and develop and run service activities that engage hundreds of youth participants—from supporting the elderly to educating children and refugees, to rescuing discarded food and supporting plastic reduction efforts.

HandsOn is thrilled to announce that applications are open for YOUTH EMPOWERED '22-23, made possible with the generous support of The Starbucks Foundation. 

Why join the program?

• Learn about Hong Kong's evolving social needs and how volunteers can make a difference;
• Help shape a range of community service programs–each one supporting the needs of under-resourced charities and the vulnerable groups they serve;
• Work in teams with students from different schools to lead service activities throughout the year;
• Act as ambassadors for HandsOn Hong Kong; become more active citizens and make an impact, confidently.

Who can apply?

• Hong Kong residents, aged 13-17; may speak Cantonese or English (or both)
