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 counselling 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.

 

 

Service Contents

Services are provided in both horizontal and vertical perspectives. Vertically, we would assess the motivation of the youth, arouse and enhance their psychological health, and help them reintegrate into the society. Horizontally, we would help the youth breakthrough their "Hidden" situation by rebuilding their social network and connecting to the community.

  • Counselling Hotline: Registration and enquiry service are provided by the on-duty social worker.

  • Case Work follow up: Through home visits and casework service, social workers strive to build a trustful relationship with the youth, provide counselling service and interest-development intervention with an aim to enhance motivation for reintegrating into the society.

  • Career and Life Planning: Different activities are provided by social workers based on the motivation and interest of the youth, including self-understating workshop, social skills training, outdoor activities, job placement and so on are provided to assist the youth to explore and formulate for their career and life goals.
