Home and Youth Affairs Bureau launches Youth Start-up Internship Programme 2024
     The Home and Youth Affairs Bureau (HYAB) partners with the Hong Kong Cyberport Management Company Limited (Cyberport) and the Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTP) to launch the Youth Start-up Internship Programme (YSIP) 2024 today (January 31) to provide young people with internship opportunities at local start-ups.

     The HYAB is committed to promoting youth development. In 2021, the HYAB co-organised with Cyberport for the first time the launching of the YSIP on a pilot basis to provide 100 internship placements at start-ups for Hong Kong young people. Following the success of the pilot programme, the HYAB, together with Cyberport and the new co-organiser HKSTP, regularised and expanded the YSIP last year and provided a total of 200 internship placements at start-ups. The YSIP aims to foster young people's interest in pursuing a career in innovation and technology (I&T), and at the same time nurture talent for the industry in support of Hong Kong's overall direction of promoting I&T development.
     For the new round of the YSIP, Cyberport and the HKSTP will provide 200 internship placements of three to six months, covering various disciplines such as data analysis, fintech, artificial intelligence, business development and marketing. The participating companies can engage interns on a full-time, part-time or mixed basis. Applicants should be local full-time post-secondary students (including sub-degree, undergraduate and post-graduate students). Apart from internship placements, Cyberport and the HKSTP will also arrange a series of training and entrepreneurship activities for the interns, as well as visits to start-ups in the Mainland cities of the Greater Bay Area.
     Details of the YSIP and information about the placements offered are now available on the dedicated webpages of Cyberport and the HKSTP. Interested young people should submit applications to companies via the webpages. Upon receipt of the applications, participating companies will conduct assessment and selection for implementing the internship arrangements.
