Fei Yue Community Services has been appointed by the Central Youth Guidance Office (CYGO) to run the second pilot of the Youth GO! Programme (YGP). This is a youth street outreach programme that supports at-risk youths so that they will be meaningfully engaged in their studies or work, stay crime-free, and be able to solve problems and be resilient individuals.
Youth workers make contact with youths in the neighbourhoods by going onto the streets to get to know and befriend them. Youths are informed of the services that exist in their locality, and social workers identify any needs or risk behaviours for appropriate intervention.
Activities such as fishing, night cycling and barbeques are organized by youth workers in order to engage and build rapport with the youths, model positive behaviours, and impart life skills.
Information and Referral
Youths who are in distress, facing issues, or need assistance in any way can obtain the services or resources they require.
Youths can seek professional counselling help and support services regarding their personal issues, and be assisted by youth workers in dealing and coping with their challenges. The worker may also work holistically and systemically with the youths’ school and family to effect change.
