Message from the Foundation
“Young people embody the best of life. They are vibrant, curious and brave, smart, pure and determined. They have ideas and ideals, they have life and a lifetime, they have the power to change their worlds and the world.
The Youth Arch Foundation exists to help young people bring out the best of themselves so that our community can shine even brighter with the best of life.”
We believe in youth. We believe in their dreams, their passions and their talents. We are deeply committed to recognising these dreams, passions and talents and nurturing them through a wide range of meaningful, creative and effective programmes. Through these programmes, we hope also to instil in youths a sense of community and belonging, to provide youths with the opportunity to participate in community service in a sustainable manner and to offer them a platform to develop strong and fun friendships and to learn from each other.
Two of our principal programmes are the Hong Kong Outstanding Students’ Award and the Youth Arch Student Improvement Award, which have been run since the 1980s and are well renowned within the community.
In all we do, we adhere firmly to our core values of integrity, determination, leading by example, respecting individual differences and caring from the heart.
We invite you to learn more about our Foundation. We do so with the sincere hope that you will join us in our cause. We thank you in advance.
