Exploring the Possibilities of Youth


  • Educations on planning life and on adversity are lacking in the grades-oriented Hong Konger secondary schools
  • Minority groups, like people with disabilities, ex-offenders, past drug-users and new immigrants, are often badly labelled and prevented from finding good jobs


  • An innovative life-planning programme combining sharing of experience from the minority groups and “Life and Career Card” to help pupils find a good plan for their own life


200 adolescents to join our career development and life-planning programme

5 individuals from minority groups to receive 32 hours of training to become guest speakers, group leaders and instructors
2 individuals from minority groups to work with us in the short-term staff
Confidence to be boosted and potentials to be unleashed from the adolescents


MAP gains revenue from education programmes
