IAVE Asia Pacific Youth Volunteer Conference


The 15th IAVE Asia Pacific Youth Volunteer Conference in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Hong Kong Youth Delegation


The International Association for Volunteer Effort (IAVE) Asia Pacific Youth Volunteer Conference will take place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from 22 to 23 November 2017.     As a leading organization in promoting volunteerism in Hong Kong and the IAVE Representative for Hong Kong, Agency for Volunteer Service (AVS) is going to organize a youth delegation, with passion for volunteering, to attend the Conference. 

The Conference is full of interactive, fun and educational activities.  It offers opportunities for the youth delegates to connect and exchange, and learn from their peers from the Asia Pacific region.  Delegates will also have a chance to experience local volunteering activities.  It is a great opportunity for the Hong Kong youth to reach beyond their boundaries and learn more about volunteerism and the development of volunteering in the new age.

Selected youths will be sponsored for the trip to benefit from that exceptional overseas experience.
