Finding a Life Goal

Living in a city which offers a plethora of career choices, it is not uncommon for fresh graduates to wonder whether they have made the right choice. There are times when a loss of passion, of incompatibility or unsuitability or just plain boredom takes away the excitement and pleasure of working.

The Federation believes it is important to support working youth when they face these types of problems and to encourage them in developing a better self-understanding to pave the way for a more meaningful life and career.

As a result, we have launched "Project MAGIC" targeted at 22-35 years-old college graduates. With the generous support of the Simon K.Y. LEE Karen’s Fund and the Department of Social and Behavioural Sciences of City University of Hong Kong as the research partner, this two year project aims to make a difference in the lives of these young people.

The Project will focus on issues around concepts of Meaning, Autonomy, Goals, Insight and Connections. In addition to professional career planning advice and counselling, the Project has novel elements, including overseas backpacker trips; international volunteer groups; and art/adventure coaching. To begin with, there will be 30 young people in the first year of the Project, which will be eager to witness how their life changes help them attain life goals.
