IT WILL be every young person's dream: an 8,171-square-metre village that will offer integrated counselling and family services, as well as outdoor and cultural activities to an estimated 100,000 youths each year. The $150 million project at A Kung Kok Shan Road in Sha Tin is being created by Breakthrough, one of the largest youth organisations in Hong Kong and is scheduled for completion by mid-1995. ''The Breakthrough Youth Village is a realisation of the spirit of co-operation among voluntary groups, youth workers and the Government in promoting youth work as outlined in the Youth Charter,'' said Dr Philemon Choi Yuen-wan, general secretary of Breakthrough. ''It is an encouraging development in integrative youth services as recommended in the government's review of children and youth centres released in June 1993. ''In the past, youth services have been relatively fragmented. This approach is neither effective nor efficient. This is the vacuum the village aims to fill. ''The $150 million was just a start for the project; in the future, it will take more than $10 million each year to keep the village running smoothly.'' Breakthrough is actively seeking support from various corporations, youth organisations and individuals for the project through sponsorship or voluntary services. The campus will follow a young, user-friendly approach and Breakthrough hopes it will be a truly environmentally-friendly complex. The $500 million site granted by the Government will consist of the Cultural Pavilion, Information Pavilion, Pathfinding Pavilion and Renewal Pavilion, each to be manned by professional youth workers. With an auditorium and an exhibition gallery, the Cultural Pavilion will aim to stimulate the cultural awareness of young people by giving them opportunities for self-expression and communication. Youngsters can develop their personal and social values by exploring various issues through workshops incorporating video, radio, reporting and editing, illustration, design, drama, dance and fine arts in the Pathfinding Pavilion. In addition to serving local youth, the village will serve as a focal point for young people from Hong Kong, Asia and the rest of the world, so the Information Pavilion will be equipped with the latest technology including computerised communications network and a substantial Asian youth database. The Renewal Pavilion will provide camping, counselling and outdoor training facilities, it will also provide temporary shelter for youths from broken families. Young people will be enrolled as day or live-in campers and will be able to join in the activities of one or all of the pavilions. As these services are provided under one roof, they will be closely co-ordinated to achieve the best integrated results. Mr Choi said youngsters might need to pay for utilising some facilities in the village, but the prices would be reasonable. To cater for the needs of young people there will be outreach social workers, family life education social workers, psychological counsellors, youth culture specialists, information managers, editors and media people.
