Youth and Education

The Group values education and encourages life-long learning. We also believe that people should grow to stay current with the world and be more innovative. To this end, we engage in a wide range of initiatives to support the growth and development of youths especially those with financial challenges.

Empowering young entrepreneurs

By offering rent-free, fully equipped office premises to Hong Kong X-Tech Startup Platform and the Federation of Hong Kong Industries, the Group empowers and encourages young entrepreneurs to pursue their dreams in technological and creative innovation and development.

Scholarship and sponsorship

The Group funds youth education both in Hong Kong and on the mainland with initiatives such as the Chinese University of Hong Kong and Education University of Hong Kong scholarships in addition to offering learning and development support to the next generation of our employees.  Through the SHKP-Kwoks' Foundation, the Group also supports some 20 universities throughout the mainland for academically outstanding but financially challenged students to complete their undergraduate studies, and special post-graduate programmes that also involve overseas study opportunities.

Supporting the Greater Bay Area Youth Employment Scheme

The Group actively supports the government’s Greater Bay Area Youth Employment Scheme. Among property developers, SHKP was one of the first employers to put the Scheme into action and has recruited by far the largest number of people for it. After completing orientation training in Hong Kong, the participating graduates will be stationed in SHKP offices in Guangdong or Zhongshan and have the opportunity to work in different departments.

Sun Hung Kai Properties Nobel Laureates Distinguished Lectures

The Group and the Chinese University of Hong Kong have presented the Sun Hung Kai Properties Nobel Laureates Distinguished Lecture series since 2004, with 28 Nobel Laureates and renowned scholars sharing their insights and knowledge with people of Hong Kong.

Modern Apprenticeship Programme

The Group in conjunction with Breakthrough organizes the Modern Apprenticeship Programme specially designed for underperforming students. It provides them with practical learning, on-the-job training, and one-on-one coaching by experienced employees to provide the career skills young people will need in life and to boost their personal growth.
