TREATS is committed to the development of young people, especially disadvantaged ones. Through new experiences, social exposure and skills training, young people of all abilities are given an equal opportunity to develop and participate in society. In addition, by working closely with the business sector, we mobilize resources and prepare youth to meet fresh challenges in their life journey.
This Project is supported by The Community Chest of Hong Kong.
Every year, 120 students from 4 mainstream schools and 4 special schools join together to go through intensive training and accomplish a series of modules and projects on social inclusion over 9 months (from September to May). Participants who have completed the training are appointed as ‘Youth Ambassadors’ and take on the mission of sharing their changes and inclusion experiences with schools and communities. The project covers important inclusion knowledge, communication and teamwork skills, and community networking and volunteering. As the grand finale of the project, the youth ambassadors organize the Journey to Integration Carnival in May to showcase their efforts and outcomes. The project emphasizes social interaction, group process, communication, participation and personal development in an equal platform. It encourages young people to reflect on their values, attitudes and behaviourstowards a more inclusive generation.
Work plays an important part in every person’s life and is an important inclusion indicator for society. In view of the high rate of unemployment and work exclusion for young adults with disabilities, TREATS’ Inclusive Work-based Learning Project aims at providing real-life work experience for youth with disabilities before they graduate from school.

Project SHINE is a specially-designed project for building personal competence, enhancing social capacity and developing social networks for youth from ethnic minority groups through various outdoor adventure training activities and work-based mentoring. We provide intensive pre-project training, ongoing case management support and follow up sessions for both youth mentees from different backgrounds and participating corporate mentors. We work with companies to recruit and identify mentors and support them in providing guidance and being a role model for participating students. The project provides youth with an opportunity to learn and develop their potential, as well as helping to build a caring and inclusive corporate culture.
