Home and Youth Affairs Bureau launches new round of Funding Scheme for Youth Exchange in the Mainland
     The Home and Youth Affairs Bureau (HYAB) and the Youth Development Commission (YDC) jointly launched the 2024-25 Funding Scheme for Youth Exchange in the Mainland today (November 13). Eligible non-governmental organisations (NGOs) are invited to submit applications.

     The Government attaches great importance to youth development. The HYAB promulgated the Youth Development Blueprint in end-2022, which states that the Government will further strengthen the breadth and depth of the Mainland and international internship and exchange programmes with a view to enhancing young people's understanding of the country and supporting their integration into the overall development of the country. Through the Funding Scheme for Youth Exchange in the Mainland, the HYAB and the YDC provide funding for NGOs to organise youth exchange projects on the Mainland for Hong Kong young people to enhance their awareness and understanding of the country's development, foster exchange with Mainland people and strengthen their sense of national identity.

     The 2024-25 funding scheme accepts two rounds of applications. Details and application forms of the first round are available on the YDC website (www.ydc.gov.hk/en/programmes/ep/ep_fundingscheme.html). Interested NGOs should submit their applications on or before December 11. The second round of application will be launched in mid-2024.
