    • YCCECE proudly announced on 22 February 2024 that a new project funded by the Commission on Children titled "Guardian Angel Project (GAP): Narrowing the Information Gap about Child Protection for Vulnerable Populations” is coming its way soon. 


      This is the College's first project supported by the Commission on Children's Funding Scheme for Children’s Well-being and Development. Led by Dr Ana Olguin (Assistant Professor and Co-Director of the Pamela Peck Discovery Space), this project aims to develop a parent/caregiver-friendly curriculum on child protection for Special Education Needs (SEN) and Ethnic Minorities (EM) and to share it with organizations that serve these populations. It aims to provide parents/caregivers of special education needs and ethnic minority children with a developmentally appropriate and intentionally crafted curriculum, as well as opportunities for group sharing, to enhance their knowledge of child protection. 


      Commencing in June of this year, the College will conduct a series of workshops for participating parents/caregivers of SEN and EM children, offering insights into current local practices regarding child protection in Hong Kong, as well as global perspectives. 


      The Commission on Children was established by the Government on 1 June 2018 to address the diversified issues related to children.  It is an ongoing, action-oriented, and high-level advisory body which provides an overall steer on children initiatives; sets policy directions, strategies, and priorities related to the development and advancement of children; and oversees its implementation.  The Commission coordinates the efforts of various government bureaux and departments, teams up with different sectors and professions in society to safeguard the well-being of children, and builds a pro-child and inclusive Hong Kong.
