This year marks the 10th Anniversary of the establishment of the HKFYG Youth Crime Prevention Centre (YCPC). To mark this occasion, we are bringing together international and local experts and practitioners for a conference on Youth Crime Prevention: A Roadmap for the Future, the aim of which is to create a platform of multidisciplinary networking as we work together to make recommendations on some forward-looking strategies in tackling youth crime.
Youth delinquency is, sadly, a common feature of any society. Given the rapid changes in the world today, we are also faced with the growing challenges wrought by nefarious, toxic and deceptive temptations that have the potential to draw young people into crime or at-risk behaviours. As a result, it is our duty and responsibility to ensure that young people are provided with opportunities that will instead lead to making healthy and law-abiding life choices.
The Youth at Risk Services of The Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups (HKFYG) has been providing support and counselling services for at-risk youth and young offenders since the 1960s. We are a professional unit and focus on three main areas of youth delinquency, namely youth crime and deviance; sex-related issues and drug abuse. For these, we provide five categories of service, including prevention and education; crisis intervention and professional assessment; counselling and treatment; multi-disciplinary collaboration and advocacy.
