With the primary objective of nurturing youth, in the Year 2011 – 2012, NWFM has made use of the incentive management fee to develop two programmes: “Youth Square Venue Subsidy Scheme” and “Youth Square Volunteer Ambassador Programme”, to promote the holistic development of youth and to facilitate development of their potential and talents.

Youth Square Venue Subsidy Scheme (YSVSS)

YSVSS is a two-year scheme launched in 2012. YSVSS aims at facilitating youth groups to host youth development activities at Youth Square. YSVSS targets youth groups, non-profit making organizations and charitable organizations hosting youth activities.

YSVSS has selected 28 proposals with a subsidy being granted in the form of venue hiring charge at Youth Square. Beneficiary organizations and their proposals cover an array of activities targeting youth development. Participating schemes include leadership training courses organized by various youth organizations such as the Hong Kong Association of Youth Development Limited, Junior Chamber International Ocean and The Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups, as well as a series of music training and performance activities organized by arts and cultural groups such as the Hong Kong Wind Philharmonia and Music for our Young Foundation Limited.

Youth Square Volunteer Ambassador Programme (YSVAP)

YSVAP is a one-year project launched in 2012. YSVAP targets secondary school students in Hong Kong and requires the YS Volunteer Ambassador to design, plan and execute volunteer projects. Through the training provided in the programme and active participation of the YS Volunteer Ambassadors, YSVAP aims at developing the Volunteer Ambassadors’ self-confidence, leadership, creative and communication skills and to cultivate positive values to serve the community, promoting holistic development of youth in Hong Kong.

Out of the 30 proposals received from over 300 secondary school students, YSVAP selected 21 proposals with recruitment of over 200 YS Volunteer Ambassadors. To share their passion, YS Volunteer Ambassadors motivate more than 200 youths who are their friends and fellow students to join and execute their volunteer projects, topping up the total number of serving volunteers and service hours to over 400 and 2,700 respectively. The volunteers come from different districts and provided service to a wide spectrum of beneficiaries.

Youth Square provides one-off funding to each of the projects. Training and workshops will also be provided for the YS Volunteer Ambassadors to equip them with necessary skills to provide volunteer service, including Service Skills for Different Beneficiaries, Basic Concept for Volunteer Services, Activity Design and Planning, Crisis Management, etc.

Band Stands for New Energy and Operation Santa Claus (2012 - 2013)

We help young participants develop their musical talents and widen their horizons with a series of workshops in which they can learn from local bands. This programme culminates in a concert with environmental themes at Youth Square, "Band Stands for New Energy".

The concert "Band Stands for New Energy" is part of NWFM’s participation in the popular Operation Santa Claus, which is one of the most recognized charity campaigns in Hong Kong. It is organized by the South China Morning Post and Radio Television Hong Kong. By giving 100 concert tickets to youth participants of the “NEED” (No to Environmental & Ecological Destruction) programme organized by the World Wide Fund for Nature Hong Kong, NWFM enables young participants to learn to play with energy and more importantly, with an eco-friendly mind.
