Back-Youth-Up Subsidy Scheme 2022 – 2023


Background

This program aims to provide youths with financial support for overseas exploration. Our scheme emphasized on the learning and practice of compassionate justice. It aligns with EYGD mission in empowering youths to encounter different social, economic, and cultural contexts globally and locally so that they may develop glocal citizenships and developing global citizenship and impacting global and local communities. It allows youths to be proactive, taking initiation and planning their own trip under the theme of compassionate justice. Through planned and unplanned learning opportunities, the abilities in problem solving, interpersonal communication skill and resources managements can be greatly enhanced. Due to easing of global travel restrictions, local youths are yearning in overseas exploration. The scheme allows more flexible and choices to cater for great diversity in learning interests, capabilities and countries.
