*About SEYSA Youth Programme 2010***

Youth Programme 2010 is an annual event held by SEYSA, to recognise the
achievement of our new young scholarship awardees and to strengthen their
social awareness and social responsibility. As in previous years, the Youth
Programme provides talks, forum and social service experience for all
secondary school awardees to come together in promoting self-development
through discussing different social issues and exploring the relevant

The theme of the Youth Programme this year is “Tailor-make your life”.
Teenagers in Hong Kong are well blissful with all the prepared resources.
Teachers, parents and even different social celebrities have stereotyped
good teens and bad teens, and have urged the teenagers to follow certain
guidelines in society. However, have the youngsters been granted a chance to
make their own way through to make their own dreams come true? Life is what
you make it! In this programme, we hope to encourage the participants to
learn to make decisions for themselves and their future paths.
