Young people have diverse interests and abilities, and many dreams to pursue. The transition from youth and school to adulthood and work, however, presents challenges that can leave some feeling frustrated.
"CLAP for Youth @ JC" is Hong Kong's first cross-sectoral support platform that helps students and non-engaged youth plan their futures. This five-year programme will develop an evidence-based intervention model, professional career and life planning teams, five district service teams, a one-stop e-portal and more – all to foster an enabling environment for young people to identify their career interests and develop their career roadmaps. CLAP for Youth @ JC was launched in May 2015 with a HK$500 million donation funded by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust.
