HSBC Future Skills Development Project


Creating a Future


The pace of change in the world is accelerating, particularly in the world of work. This is especially so in relation to the amazing innovations in science and technology that have resulted in the increasing domination of robotics and artificial intelligence, as well as computerisation and digital processes. At the same time, so-called generic skills, particularly communication and analytical thinking, will need to be adaptable and ready for change. These trends have been pointed out by many sources, including the World Economic Forum as absolutely critical for young people to retain their competitiveness in a globalised economy.  The Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups is well aware that it, along with other sectors, needs to play a responsible role in ensuring that young people keep up to date, while also supporting their access to the new opportunities that are and will be available to them.  Therefore, the Federation, together with HSBC, now initiates the HSBC Future Skills Development Project.



Learning to Learn


The rationale of this Project is to provide education and training to re-skill young people, giving them the tools necessary for them to be creative, innovative and original. These skills, which involve both theoretical and practical aspects of knowledge, also include financial literacy, enhanced communication and sound analytical interpretations. The Federation believes that these competencies need to begin as early as possible to make sure that young people grow up with the ability to adapt and change, becoming flexible in their approach to challenges, while also developing lifelong learning skills. This expectation of constant change is a challenge, but one that can be dealt if introduced early and with relevance.  

The HSBC Future Skills Development Project serves as the first step on what will become a lifelong journey of exploration and enhancement that augments skills for future employability.

Organiser

The Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups (HKFYG) was founded in 1960 and is now the city’s largest youth service organisation. For the last 58 years, it has been committed to serving the youth of Hong Kong through the provision of a variety of services, activities and programmes, which have an annual attendance of six million.

We encourage youth to reach their fullest potential and with community support, we now have over 80 service units. We also have 12 core services, which include the Youth S.P.O.Ts, M21 Multimedia Services, Employment Services, Youth at Risk Services, Counselling Services, Parenting Services, Leadership Training, Volunteer Services, Education Services, Creativity Education and Youth Exchange, Leisure, Cultural and Sports Services, and Research and Publications. We encourage young people to grow into responsible and dutiful citizens and we now have over 200,000 registered volunteers and 450,000 registered members. We believe that our motto HKFYG • Here for You reaffirms our commitment and dedication to the young people of Hong Kong.
