The HKFYG runs two non-profit kindergartens-cum-nurseries, a non-profit kindergarten, an aided primary school and a Direct Subsidy Scheme EMI (English as a Medium of Instruction) secondary school. In each institution, a stimulating learning environment is provided so that each child will receive a well-rounded, holistic education. The HKFYG LIVING Life Academy (LLA) strives to nurture young people to enjoy life and to see lifelong learning as something that can enable this joy through less formal platforms. The LLA provides a wide range of life-related courses which emphasise interests, hobbies, skills and experience to improve the quality of life.
Creativity Education and Youth Exchange
Through cutting-edge one-stop learning model of “Learn‧Apply‧Exchange” of HKFYG’s LEAD (Learning through Engineering, Art and Design) Project, the LEAD Lab and the Centre for Creative Science and Technology (CCST), interest and potential towards STEM education can be unleashed. Diversified science and creativity competitions, including The Hong Kong Student Science Project Competition, The Hong Kong FLL Robotics Tournament, The Hong Kong GreenMech Contest and The Creative Coder Competition continue to be organised, nurturing creativity and innovation. To encourage and provide exchange opportunities, the Youth Exchange Unit organises experiential study tours on different themes to the Mainland and overseas, which help shape a deeper understanding of the country, and develop a global perspective.
Leisure, Cultural and Sports Services
The HKFYG has four camps and outdoor activities centres, which offer diversified training programmes to enhance resiliency and self-confidence, strengthen teamwork and improve communication skills. The HKFYG Zhongshan Sanxiang Youth Training Centre provides experiential learning opportunities on Chinese history, culture and the socio-economic development of villages and towns. Platforms for music and the performing arts include the Hong Kong Melody Makers a cappella choir, the Hong Kong Youth Dance troupe, the Hong Kong Youth Band and the Hong Kong Youth Percussion.

The Journal of Youth Studies provides a forum for professional discussion on youth topics for the advocacy of policies for youth services. Youth I.D.E.A.S. (Ideals, Dedication, Engagement, Aspirations and Service) is a think tank and with the support of YRC, conducts research in the areas of (1) Employment and Economic Development; (2) Governance and Constitutional Development; (3) Education and Innovation; and (4) Society and Livelihood. The Professional Publications Unit is responsible for Federation books. There are two magazines, the English quarterly, Youth Hong Kong, for local and international audiences and the bi-monthly Chinese Youth S.P.O.T. magazine which provides a platform for young people to share their stories and experiences.
