William CH Chan

Program Director

William has been an active leader at school and in the community. As the President of a joint- school student leader organization, he endeavoured to play an active role in youth leadership and community service. As a firm believer in ‘youth can make a difference’, he initiated projects to help youth in enhancing their capacity in public participation and voluntary services. With his strength to face the forthcoming challenges, his passion to aid those who cry for help and his life-long dedication to serve our youth, William was appointed by the HKSAR Government as the youngest member in Commission on Youth and later was elected at the Glocal Youth Parliament as a Steering Committee member.

Since his graduation, William continued to pursue professional training at the Juris Doctor Programme and was committed to work for and with young people. He co-founded a number of charitable youth organizations (i.e. Hong Kong Youth Exchange United Promotion Association, Hong Kong Student Development Committee and Hong Kong Student Activity Foundation) and initiated inspiring educational and developmental projects for students and youth. He has served as Commission on Youth Co-opted Member, Youth Programme Coordinating Committee Member, Broadcast Complaints Committee Co-opted Member, Career and Life Adventure Planning for Youth Project Advisory Committee Member and Barristers Disciplinary Tribunal Panel Member. In 2014, he was awarded the Chief Executive’s Commendation for Community Service in recognition of his contribution in youth services. His motto is ‘to love, to dream and to act’. He truly believes that contributing his abilities is the best way to requite society.
