The Day Creche, Children & Youth Centre, Small Group Home (SGH) & Foster Care (FC) Services, School Social Work & Support Services, Integrated Community Development Centre and Social Work Service for Pre-primary Institutions are the 9 service units of the Youth and Child Care Services. With the belief of ‘early intervention’ and ‘youth & child-centered’, we continue to serve infants, children, youth, parents, community people, etc. with various services in order to assist them in developing their potentials, pursing self-perfection, enhancing family function and caring community.
Service on Helping Poor Families and Their Young Children
Low-income and deprived families easily overlook different developmental needs of their infants due to their unfavorable financial condition. However, it helps lay a foundation for the children to adjust well at school or work if they are well-taken care of at their infant’s stage. With the ideas of “early intervention”, healthy growth of infants and having the equal opportunity as the infants of better-off families, we provide services to the low-income and deprived families to arouse their awareness to the importance of comprehensive care to their infants
Career Planning Services for Students
“C.V Project (Career & Virture)” was implemented for F.3 to F.6 students in the provision of a one-stop service with contents including self-understanding, interviewing skills, industry introduction with visits and finally an experiencing job placement (or internship). Yan Chai Hospital is an institution which provides the students with different kinds of experiencing job placements. Through attachment to our affiliated units of care & attention home, centre for the elderly, sheltered workshop, kindergarten, child care centre or Chinese medicine clinic, the participating students are not confined to knowing the career world cognitively, but the practical experience will facilitate them clear direction on their future career.
