The goal of our project was to discover effective youth employment training methods from other governments and assess their transferability to Hong Kong. We investigated programs in Germany, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and the United States. To understand the unemployment programmes in Hong Kong, YPTP and YWETS, we conducted interviews with programme directors, case managers, and trainees. We concluded that the initiatives in Hong Kong were effective. However, the general employment situation in Hong Kong may limit their impact.
