District Service Teams

Under the Community-based Team, five District Service Teams (DSTs) with distinctive features are established. The five serving districts are Hong Kong & Outlying Islands, Kowloon East, Kowloon West, New Territories East, and New Territories East. We will provide career and life planning services to youth aged 15-21 as they may feel lost in their future and lack of career and life goals. The targets of our Project include Not in Education, Employment, or Training (NEET) youth, students who are from the ten network schools and are with specific service needs, and high risk school dropout students who are referred from the School. The services provided by the five DSTs include, but not limited to:

  • Provide career and life planning services for out-of-school youths in one of the five districts of Hong Kong;
  • Provide tailor-made career and life planning services jointly with the SBT for students with special needs in the ten network schools;
  • Support mainstream schools in serving students with special needs and follow up on the school leavers, whenever necessary;
  • Conduct education programmes for the public, parents and the business sector;
  • Mobilise community resources to create multiple pathways for the youth; and
  • Assist in implementing the award
