YES – Youth Empowerment Service

To address the service needs of English-speaking individuals with special needs, the programme of Youth Empowerment Service was established in April 2014. The structure of the YES programme is designed based on the UK’s EQUALS Moving On Programme to provide full-time training activities to our service users. To enhance the independence and basic life skills of our service users with six key elements, which include “Life Skills”, “Vocational Studies and Experience”, “Functional Learning”, “Self-expression & Self-determination”, “Relationships & Social Integration” and “Transition Planning”.


Through training in a community setting, we focus on assisting our trainees to learn and acquire essential skills in daily life. We establish a friendly and safe environment to allow our trainees to interact and communicate with each other to make friends and practice their learned skills together. For details, you can refer to our website.




In view of the service needs, another branch programme CONNECT was launched in September 2017 as a life and career planning programme for young adults with mild special needs. The CONNECT programme integrates theories from counseling psychology and whole person development training for life. The programme aims to help young adults build up self-confidence and reach their potential by discovering their own strengths, capability and values through exploration, autonomy development, goal setting and management. They participate in interpersonal and social skills training, short vocational courses, and regular supported work placement provided by strategic partners, as to identify the business trends and career choices.

The CONNECT programme provides full-time training activities to our service users to prepare the young adults for successful and satisfying work experience. Equipping them with essential skills they need to participate in and to serve the community, and support them to take the first step of paving career paths.
