(This assistance scheme has been handled by Home Affairs Bureau since 2010)
Participation in UG/AYP activities helps students develop positive values and acquire leadership skills. Although UG/AYP activities are popular extra-curricular activities in schools, some students from disadvantaged families may not be able to afford the expenses for such activities.
Home Affairs Bureau has provided funding to UG/AYP which operate the Scheme for their needy student members. UG/AYP concerned may make use of the funding to assist their needy student members in purchasing uniforms, participating in camping/outing activities or joining leadership training courses. Mode of assistance will be determined by individual UG/AYP.
The target students are those primary and secondary student members in receipt of the Comprehensive Social Security Assistance or Student Financial Assistance. UG/AYP may also exercise discretion to offer not more than 10% of the approved funding to assist other disadvantaged student members.
For application details for individual UG/AYP, please log on from the link of the below "List of UG/AYP".
