Service Programme – Hong Kong Young Ambassador Scheme

Upon completion of the training, participants will be appointed as Young Ambassadors and engaged in a wide range of voluntary services throughout the school year, which starts on 1 September of a year and end on 31 July of the following year. Local Young Ambassadors will be stationed at popular tourist spots and greet visitors at mega tourism events. They will also organise activities in the community, encouraging visitors and locals to explore the city’s unique characteristics. Those Young Ambassadors who study outside Hong Kong will have the opportunity to organise activities to promote Hong Kong and Chinese culture at their schools and colleges.

Over the past few years, the Young Ambassadors have been able to assist visitors at the Hong Kong Tourism Board Visitor Centres as well as at the Ocean Park Hong Kong. They have also served in mega events, covering festive celebrations, traditional culture, arts, sports, outdoor activities including the 2024 Tissot UCI Track Nations Cup (Hong Kong, China), the Cheung Chau Bun Festival and the Cathay International Chinese New Year Night Parade. Last year, some Young Ambassadors even flew to Hangzhou and Shanghai to volunteer at the 19th Asian Games Hangzhou and the 6th China International Import Expo, showcasing the hospitable image of Hong Kong to the world.

Appointed Young Ambassadors are required to undertake one of the following service programmes as appropriate:


Local Service Programmes

Outside Hong Kong Service Programmes


The Scheme will record and verify the service hours (including service hours on community service of “Other Learning Experiences”) for the Young Ambassadors. Those with outstanding performance will be:

  • given awards and “Ambassador Certificates” (contributed at least 60 (for local Ambassadors) or 30 (for Ambassadors outside Hong Kong) service hours during the term of service)
  • nominated to participate in the Volunteer Award Scheme and exchange activities outside Hong Kong
