As a major turning point in an individual’s life, the transition from school to the world of work is a challenging task for young people, especially for non-engaged youth (NEY) who face a higher risk of being out of education, employment, or training. Moreover, the rapid social and economic changes under the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic bring additional difficulties and uncertainties for NEY to get through this transition. Therefore, it is critical to create an ecosystem that empowers NEY to become active navigators and change agents of their career and life development pathways. Such a creation depends upon the cooperation and joint efforts of various key stakeholders such as educational institutions, government, non-governmental organizations, businesses, NEY themselves and their parents.


In this connection, CLAP@JC and the Department of Social Work of the Chinese University of Hong Kong have lined up with local and international stakeholders to organize an online symposium on “Strengthening Career and Life Development (CLD) among Non-engaged Youth (NEY): Co-creating a Youth-enabling Environment”. There will be keynote presentations, plenary sessions, and interactive experiential workshops at the symposium. In these different sessions, guest speakers including international CLD experts, university professors, social workers and youth will share their experience and unique perspective on co-creating the youth-enabling environment and discuss how to engage and empower NEY to strengthen their career and life development and achieve meaningful lives.


The symposium will be held on 8 Jul 2022 (Fri) and 9 Jul 2022 (Sat). It is free of charge and will be conducted online. Below is the information on registration and the rundown. We are looking forward to seeing you at the online symposium!
