"BLOG" Hidden Youth Career Life Development Service

"BLOG" Hidden Youth Career Life Development Service

Service Introduction

We are the first agency to engage in tackling the issue of hidden youth phenomenon in Hong Kong. Since 2003, we have started a pilot counselling service with the support of various funding. Starting from April 2016, the hidden youth counseling service which is named "BLOG" Hidden Youth Career Life Development Service was officially integrated into our mainstream integrated children and youth service in the Kowloon West and Hong Kong Island Districts. In 2022, thanks to the generous support from the Hongkong Land HOME FUND, the service territory of the "BLOG" Hidden Youth Career Life Development Service is further extended to the New Territories District to eliminate the existing service gap. The extension of the service territory to the New Territories was officially started on 1st September 2022.

Recently, the "BLOG" Hidden Youth Career Life Development Service Team from all three districts, New Territories, Kowloon West and Hong Kong Island are aimed at fostering the youth to get rid of their “Hidden” situation, explore multiple interests, and develop meaningful engagement.
