Radio drama to showcase struggles and triumphs of Youth Employment and Training Programme trainees

     The Labour Department (LD) and Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK) will jointly present the radio drama "A Moment to Fly" to promote services of the Youth Employment and Training Programme (YETP). The production aims to encourage young people to stay resilient amidst adversity and remain committed to achieving their goals in life.

     The radio drama consists of six short stories adapted from the real-life experiences of seven YETP trainees. It showcases how the trainees, after joining the YETP's pre-employment and on-the-job training, have set directions and achieved goals in starting a new chapter in their lives with the support of family, case managers and course trainers of the YETP.

     Featuring young singers Kwangor, Zac Liu, On Chan, Cath Wong, Terence Lam, Mag Lam and Anson Lo, the 18-episode radio drama will be broadcast during the programme "Three's a Crowd" on RTHK's Radio 2 every Monday between 3pm and 5pm from November 16.

     The YETP provides a comprehensive job search platform with one-stop and diversified pre-employment and on-the-job training for young school leavers aged 15 to 24 with educational attainment at the sub-degree level or below. The programme helps young people understand themselves and their work aptitudes better, while enriching their job skills and experience for improving their employability.

     Enrolment for the YETP is free of charge on a year-round basis, without minimum academic qualification requirements. Services provided include pre-employment training, one-month workplace attachment training, on-the-job salaried training for six to 12 months, and 12-month case management services provided by registered social workers. Trainees receive personalised career guidance, job search assistance and employment support. All eligible young people are welcome to apply. An off-the-job vocational training allowance and a retention allowance are provided to eligible trainees.

     For details, please visit the YETP's website at The LD has also set up a Youth Employment Services hotline at 2112 9932 to provide a one-stop enquiry service regarding the programme and receive registrations of training vacancies from employers.
