The beginning of work life marks the beginning of another life stage. While there are a vast variety of occupations and industry prospects, it is natural to ponder the way to make informed and suitable decisions for our career plan in the future. A video titled “The Five Stories of Life Planning” which features five life stories about self-discovery and career exploration is produced by “La Violet Charity Foundation” (Chinese version only), a funded organisation of the “Funding Scheme for Youth Life Planning Activities”. The interviewees come from different walks of life. They are Shala, a Singer and a Composer; Zowie, a Media Editor; Ranger, a Business Development Officer of a social enterprise; Wing, a Community Tour Guide; and Hannah, a Marketing Manager of a social enterprise. Let’s listen to their life stories and advice on life planning. “The Five Stories of Life Planning” (Source: The Youth Development Commission Facebook Page) About “Funding Scheme for Youth Life Planning Activities” The Youth Development Commission provides subsidies for non-governmental organisations to work in collaboration with secondary schools in organising a wide variety of life planning projects for the youth under the “Funding Scheme for Youth Life Planning Activities” (the Scheme).
