Guiding Dreams

Young people planning their career paths while still in secondary schools is becoming more popular and necessary as the world grows more competitive. To enable parents to better understand this unfamiliar concept, in September, the HKFYG Youth Employment Network (YEN) has launched a new programme, "Guiding Dreams".

This programme is all about engaging parents in supporting their children to realize and pursue their dreams. Sponsored by the Youth Development Commission, the three-year programme consists of two parts. The first, Dreams with You brings parents and junior secondary school students together to discuss and talk about potential career paths. Overnight camps and career workshops will be organised to help parents become their children's guides, supporter and cheer-leaders based on their own knowledge, experiences and network. The second, Dreams Come True, focuses more on senior secondary students. In the form of an award scheme, students will take part in different activities, exploring their dreams and attempting to realize them step by step. They will then have to put into action their plans over the summer holidays, and present their achievements to a judging panel.  It is expected that over 4,000 students and 700 parents will benefit from the programme.

Join in this career progression path for young people and see how you too can guide dreams!
