About KELY

Our Vision

We envision a world where young people are empowered to reach their full potential.

Our Mission

To equip young people with the skills, knowledge, and opportunities needed to support themselves and each other.

Our Program

Our Focus on Peer Support, Leadership Development, and Mentorship

We collaborate with schools and other partners to offer programmes to Chinese-speaking and English-speaking youth between the ages of 14 and 24 around our three core focus areas: Drug and Alcohol Awareness, Mental Health & Wellbeing, and Positive Youth Development.
Drug and Alcohol Awareness
Work to prevent and reduce the harm associated with drug and alcohol abuse
Mental Health & Wellbeing
Help young people to understand their own emotions, cope with stress, and know how to help themselves as well as their peers
Positive Youth Development
Create opportunities for young people to explore and develop life skills and creative expressions, increasing their aspirations for the future

Our Approach

Our Focus is on Peer Support, Leadership Development, and Mentorship

At KELY, we encourage peer support because young people are more likely to feel supported and listened to when interacting with their peers within a positive environment. We pay attention to young people’s needs and develop future leaders by engaging our youth in the planning and implementation of our programmes and services for their peers. Trusted adult volunteers from the local community are invited to share their knowledge and expertise with our youth, develop shared goals and work together as a team in our various programmes.

KELY Ehub 

Hybrid training model empowered

KELY Ehub is an online learning platform offered by KELY Support Group. This platform is designed to equip young people and relevant stakeholders with the knowledge and skills regarding the following three core areas: Drugs and Alcohol Awareness, Mental Health and Wellbeing and Positive Youth Development. 

In 2020, KELY has moved beyond face to face programme and training with young people to a more hybrid training model, in order to meet different learning needs in the digital age. 

With the KELY Ehub, our resources become easily accessible to a wider group of service users regardless of time and place. It allows young people to have flexibility, control and freedom in achieving their full potential through participating in continuous learning outside of the school context. With the development of the KELY Ehub, it transforms the way we train and also enhances the quality of KELY’s programmes as the platform helps to deepen our interaction with and support for young people.

In the coming future, KELY will continue developing the platform in order to engage our youth learners, as well as parents and frontline educators on a deeper level. We are looking out for collaboration opportunities with schools and relevant stakeholders in order to maximize the impact of this learning platform.
