Upon completion of the training, participants will be appointed as Young Ambassadors and engaged in numerous voluntary services to promote Hong Kong’s tourism throughout the school year, which starts on 1 September of a year and end on 31 July of the following year. The Young Ambassadors will station at popular tourist spots and greet visitors at tourism promotional events.

In the past few years, the Young Ambassadors have stationed at main tourist attractions, such as The Peak Tower and the sky100 Hong Kong Observation Deck. They have also served in mega entertainment and “M” Mark sports events such as the International Chinese New Year Night Parade and the UCI Track Cycling World Cup, Hong Kong, China.
